    Yes and no, the Airport Extreme was designed and manufactured before the theoretical speed of 450Mbps was introduced, so no it cannot broadcast wifi at those speeds. However, any computer that has a wireless N card (regardless of if its the new 450Mbps spec or not) can connect to it at the previous spec of 300Mbps
