  • Easy Wi-Fi setup using iPhone, iPad or Mac.

    Connect your DSL or cable modem to AirPort Express and create your new wireless network in just a few taps from your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Or use the built-in AirPort Utility on your Mac. Setup is just as fast and just as easy.

    Simultaneous dual-band 802.11n.

    AirPort Express lets Wi-Fi-enabled devices connect to your network on the 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless bands. Which means every connected device automatically uses the best band available for the fastest possible performance.

    Stream music with AirPlay.

    AirPlay takes the music from the iTunes library on your computer or iOS device and sends it wirelessly to any connected stereo or speakers in your home (audio cable sold separately). Play music on one set of speakers — or if you have more than one AirPort Express connected to speakers, play your music from iTunes on all of them at the same time.

    Print wirelessly from any room.

    On the back of AirPort Express is a USB port that’s made for your printer. Just plug it in and instantly it’s like having a printer in every room. And since AirPort Express works with Mac and PC, everyone in the house can take advantage of one centrally available printer.

    Compatibility and security.

    AirPort Express is compatible with devices using the 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g and 802.11n specifications. So no matter what Wi-Fi device you’re using, it will work with AirPort Express. AirPort Express also features a built-in firewall to protect your network from malicious Internet attacks. The firewall is automatically turned on, so you don’t have to do a thing.

    Create a guest network.

    Set up a separate Wi-Fi network with a separate password just for your guests. Simply enable the guest networking feature, and your guests can access the Internet but not other parts of your primary network, such as your computers, printers and LAN-attached hard drives.

    Note for prospective purchasers ... make sure you install the Airport Utility App (Free) on your iPad (or iPhone or iPod) then the setup is incredibly easy.

The power cord is very slim lined and as a result maintains portability. Dual Band is a clear advantage, its simple to set up using the airport IOS app and clearly well thought out.

    I had to rate it as five stars to compensate for the reviewer that decided it only warranted one star because it now has a separate power cable rather than just plugging it in to the wall.

    For me, the new format is a major improvement and should give me greater scope in positioning the unit to maximise the signal.

Would be listening to Sonos in the bedroom and it would cut out... go to the hallway where the airport express is and it would be flashing orange. A restart and then it goes green again with excellent reception. After spending far too long on the phone with Apple to try and get this sorted we are fed up with it and have to live with turning off and back on again about 3 times a week. Not great.
