    Power plug to large

    • Written by from Little Rock

    I read some have problem with their power plug being to large to use cat 5 into WAN port. Google "YL-113L" for a smaller power plug that may work. The product has been great as my new travel router so far. Using an old Case Logic CD case I carry the router, cat 5 and power cables.

    Does not work at 220-240 V AC. Be careful!!!

    • Written by from LIma

    This ruins all the portability of the device while travelling since you have to carry and additional transformer. But that is not the worst part. There is NO WARNING !!!! I looked at the manual, and there is NOTHING.
    Apple be prepared for lots of returns of burned devices.
    I applied common sense since there was not the usual boxy plug (transformer) like every other Apple AC connector. Then I loooked at a very small print in very light gray in the same plug end, stating it works with 125 V only....
    I will have to return it...

    Great upgrade!

    • Written by from YOUNGSVILLE

    Bought this today to because my old express wasn't reaching the back side of the house and did not want to buy the extreme. Hooked it up and used my old settings and then turned the old express into an extender. Took less than ten minutes for everything! Good work Apple!

    Great Addition

    • Written by from Orange

    We use several Apple devices in my household. I have an Airport Extreme set up in my office, that alone was great. I will lose 1 bar on the other end of my house, I just installed my new Airport Express in the center of my home ( 2 step process with airport utility) now I have full bars in my entire house. You just cant beat that....
    It has been a great addition to our apple family.

    Minor confusion for set up

    • Written by from Chicago

    Now that I have the product up and running it's fine. However, the instructions are not written very well. They tell you to plug in all the cables to the airport express and then plug into the outlet. It will glow solid amber and then blink amber until set up and connection are complete and it turns solid green. Well, I did exactly what it said and it was still blinking amber after several hours. There is nothing in the instructions saying that this should take maybe 5 minutes max. So I called, and the sales clerk wasn't entirely sure, but after awhile he suggested that I go online and create my network name and password first. I did this via my iphone since I had already disconnected my previous wireless router. After that everything was perfect and took no time at all. Not sure why the instruction booklet doesn't call this out. Kind of crucial to do this before unhooking everything. Device syncs awesome and I have already been able to print wireless from my iphone and my mac. I love convenience.

    Better than best

    • Written by from Vancouver

    This thing was a dream to set up. I've been using a Linksys router for years and you have to log onto the Linksys web site based on a hyperlink (192.168.1.1) with an ethernet cable from you computer, and you have to spend quite a bit of time figuring out the many screens with security and network name with passwords and and and and..... I set this thing up in about 2 minutes doing it all on my iPad. Wirelessly. Don't waste your time on another way to hook up to the internet wirelessly, and for the record it does much more than just that.

    Well worth the price!

    • Written by from Fishkill

    I live in a 1 BR condominium and find that the new Airport Express base station perfectly meets my needs. It is sleek, compact, and very easy to setup on a Mac! This unit has exceeded my expectations in terms of quality and performance!

    If you need a good router for a small area, this is the one to buy!

    Well done, Apple!

    Good for a while, now flaky

    • Written by from Moose Jaw

    I bought this about a year ago, it actually worked great for 6-8 months, I used it to extend my network (have a Time Capsule). Ever since that point it's been flaky, sometimes it stops working for no reason, sometimes it has a green light but no one can connect, etc. In the end I've just unplugged it and stopped using it. I can still pick up the TC wireless signal at that end of the house but it's not as strong.

    I would absolutely not recommend you buy this product, it won't last. I do like, however, the compact size and the easy setup, how it easily integrates into my iHouse. We've got two iMacs, an iPad, 2 iPhones, 3 iPod touches, a Time Capsule and an Apple TV so I've got the Apple products but this is the one I wouldn't buy again.

    Apple Express + Motorola SURFboard 6121

    • Written by from DuPont

    It's perfect. I have a 1900 square foot home, two floors, and no problems. My Airport express is on the second floor and plenty of wifi coverage across the entire home. I have cable internet so instead of renting from the ISP's, I just bought my own equipment (Motorola SURFboard6121). In combination with my Airport express, it was very easy to set up. I called my ISP first to set up my modem. Do not set things up on your own. Call your ISP. They will be needing your MAC i.d. from your modem to get the process started. Once that was squared away I called Apple and double checked my set up was correct. I'm very excited about my network. I have two iPhone 5's , an iPod 4, iPad 2, MacBook PRO, PS3 and a Wii. Even with all of this equipment, I have no problem obtaining fast internet speed. Thank you Macintosh.

    FANTASTIC!

    • Written by from Tunkhannock

    This router replaced my Belkin router that I only had for a few months. It would always drop its connection and Airplay would never work so I had to keep unplugging it to restart it. With Apples AirPort Express I no longer have these problems. My Internet is always connected and Airplay is always there when I need it. Thanks Apple!

    Awesome, easy setup!

    • Written by from Foley

    I counted five finger pokes I had to do on my iPad to set my new express up as a wireless extender to my airport extreme! No passwords required, no long setup process... Just plug in, find it in wifi, ask it to join your network and it's ready. It's that easy!

    Great accessory to the Airport Extreme

    • Written by from Austin

    I purchased the new Airport Express to use as a wifi extender to my Airport Extreme Router. It was easy to setup using my iPad and extends my wifi signal throughout a large two story home. I now have a strong signal everywhere in my house and even in my backyard. Compared to the old days of using disposable Linksys routers, setup was a breeze, performance is great, and being able to extend the guest network from the Airport Extreme is a big plus.

    Skeptic from Reviews

    • Written by from Miami Beach

    After reading so many reviews, I was a bit skeptic but I figured I have 14 days to try it then return if I didn't like it, so here it goes...

    MY STORY:

    First of all I am using this device as a router. After buying, I did the setup (very easy by the way) and immediately started using it with the AirPlay (music) feature as well and connected it with speakers. I have had it for 3 weeks now and I haven't had a single issue with it. I spent $200 last year on a Linksys EA4500 router and from the start, the router often would not provide internet. I would have to restart it frequently to fix the issue but it would occur almost everyday. Until I got fed up and bought this one to replace it, which is a "downgrade" if you think about it.

    SPECS:

    Anyway, once, in these three weeks I did experienced an internet connection loss but I noticed that the AirPort Express "recognized" this and restarted all on its own! I was sitting next to it when it occurred but 5 secs later I was back online. I would consider the WiFi range to be decent but I really can't say much in this matter because I live in a 1,000 sq ft apartment; so, I get full signal almost everywhere. On this product's specifications it doesn't state the transfer rate, so I tested it, and, depending on your device, you may get up to 300 Mbps. I've used this AirPort Express connected with a Motorola Surfboard (Modem), MacBook Pro, iPhones, iPads, AppleTV, Canon Printer and a Sony VAIO (Windows). They all work perfectly fine with it.

    Hope this helps, good luck!
