    It's like an Extreme-mini!! Super easy setup

    • Written by from Clarksville

    Bought this to replace the old Airport Express from a year ago, because I wasn't getting very good reception in one corner of the house. I'm using this as an extender, and so far it's great.

    Compared to the old Express, this one is

    1) Easier to set up than the old Express. The last one took me 15 minutes. With this one, the iOS Airport Utility helped me set it up in 30 seconds. I've literally spent hours setting up and fixing other brands of routers. This one is truly frustration-free!!

    2) Faster than the old Express. After placing this one where the old Express was, I noticed better range and speed in other parts of the house.

    I really don't think the extra cord is that big of a deal. It's well worth the trade-off of having a faster, better router/extender. I really think this could be the primary router for a smaller house.

    Finally!!

    • Written by from Orlando

    I just got a mac mini and started having issues with my Linksys router. I purchased a D- Link and their customer service was not able to connect it to my mac. Finally Apple suggested I get the Airport Express and it works amazing!! I no longer get the error "another pc is using your same ip address". Also I have a 2 story 1400 sqft house. I have it connected on the second floor and the reception is better than the other routers I had. I get full bar reception on my iphone and ipad all over the house with no issues. If you are worried about getting this one verses the extreme, just purchase this one and try it out. You may not need the more expensive one. I was told by apple support that this new one has much better reception than the old one. I am so happy and always willing to pay a little extra for apple products when they are so simple to use. I am very happy with this.

    Bought this router to replace my cable providers router that kept cutting the signal at weird times of the day and it has been nothing but FLAWLESS. Super easy to set up, super tiny and works just fine for an apartment of 4.

    The Best $99 I've Spent So Far in This Century

    • Written by from GREENPORT

    My office is on the second floor of my house built in 1832. My wife’s office with her PC was downstairs next to the laundry room. Because of the appliances, we could only provide access to the internet for her via a unit that used the electrical wiring of the house. She could not connect to my TC.
    Now, the good news. She finally threw out the dreadful Dell replacing it with an iMac and we bought the Airport Express hoping the increased range would make the difference. It did and it only took 7.5 minutes to hook up. What’s more she wirelessly uses “our” printer and TC in my office and we both can play music through the living room’s sound system where we located the unit.
    The best $99 I’ve spent so far in this century.

    Extended my network perfectly!

    • Written by from Nutley

    I received my Airport Express very quickly from Apple and as soon as I plugged it in the setup was so simple! The Airport Express asked me if I wanted to extend my Airport Extreme and all I had to do was click a button and the Airport Express successfully extended my network wirelessly. The Airport Express maintained the original speed of the network when it was extended! Worth the buy money, if you need to extend your network this is the product you need!

    Works like magic!

    • Written by from Tacoma

    I compared this with what Netgear and Belkin were offering (ballpark $80) before my purchase but finally decided on this one because of the ease-of-use of my last one, and the unobtrusive form factor - its in my living room.

    I use a Linux machine for a DHCP server and planned to use this in a bridged mode to make everything else work together. This isn't a bizarre configuration, but not the most common configuration either.

    So here's the cool part: I plugged it in to my network with my Macbook on the physical network, expecting to fish around a bit in 'Network Preferences' - but before any intervention was needed, the AirPort utility popped up with a picture of my new device, then asked me to name it and set the password.. it displayed something about 'checking the existing network' then configured itself in 'bridge mode' exactly as I intended to do manually. The only extra clicking I did was when I double-checked that it had just finished doing the smartest thing possible on my network.

    Easy & Effective

    • Written by from estero

    Went to Apple Store, bought it on my Iphone and was out of the store (which was full) within 90 seconds. Got home, connected it to the power. Went to my Mac opened Airport Utility and was up and running literally within 10 minutes. It has extended the range of my network incredibly into my backyard/patio area. Kudos for Apple. It continues to be an incredible company (even w/o Mr Jobs No disrespect intended)

    Plug and Play!

    • Written by from Troy

    If all your electronics are Apple, this is a MUST have. I needed a booster for the back of my house and this was perfect combined with my AirPort Extreme. I plugged it into the wall, opened AirPort Utility on my MacBook Pro clicked the box in the upper left hand corner of the AP Utility pop up and the Mac did the rest! Once it was set up and showed up in my Network, I unplugged it and took it to the back of the house and plugged it in. FOUR bars of Network signal!! YES!! I can't believe it took this long for me to buy this! MUST have if your Network needs a boost!

    New AirPort Express Up-and-Running

    • Written by from Hermosa Beach

    Ordered within minutes of it appearing on the Apple Store. Arrived 1 day early!

    Another great, easy-to-setup Apple product. Upgraded from an original AirPort Express, I'm getting at least twice the speed from that. I thought that it would be faster, so I investigated. Turns out our TWC internet has the standard 10 mbps package, and with the new AE, we're getting 12 mbps (previously about 6 mbps). So don't overlook your internet connection.

    Nevertheless, it looks almost identical to its neighbor Apple TV except it's white. I will miss the original form factor with the integrated power plug, but even that had its drawbacks -- specifically, it's difficult to reposition for best reception unless you use...you guessed it...an extension cord. With the new AE, it's one more small thing to pack when traveling, but not a big deal. Overall, best router for me!

    Exceptional Product!

    • Written by from Rockland

    Unmatched in the industry! Nicely done Apple. Great to add wireless to just about any audio/video component and printers that have an internet port which then becomes accessible via Apple AirPlay.

    Fantastic

    • Written by from Drummonds

    I upgraded a netgear n150 wireless router when airplay mirroring was lagging on it.
    Setup was different from the netgear but the setup software explained everything along the way and before I knew it I had everything going wired and wireless. My ipad on the 5ghz network helped eliminate any lag with airplay mirroring and my apple tv is hardwired to the express, now when I stream my movies from icloud in HD the buffer time does not take as long compared to my old netgear. Best investment I have made to improve my network.

    Extended range

    • Written by from BELLEROSE MANOR

    Purchased this to extend range of my Apple Extreme base station. House is on three levels with Apple Extreme on top floor. Could not get signal to back rear of house nor to out side front. Installed this unit on lowest level. Now receive signal throughout house plus outside of home. No dead spots. Excellent signal strength. The bottom line with these devices is placement. If you wish to use to extend your signal you may have to try different locations. The other factor is the cable modem bringing the signal to the base station. Is it b/g or b/g/n? Finally, the setup to extend is extremely simple. Just be sure you have your passwords.

    Bought this when I moved. Hooked it up to my cable modem, printer and speakers.
    Works well. I consistently get 5GHZ signal. Airplay works well with my iphone, macbook pro but not my ipod touch (gen 2).

    I recommend it!

    Great addition to AirPort Extreme

    • Written by from Birmingham

    I've extended my wireless AirPort Extreme network with Airport Express. Setup is simple, signal strength is great and response time is outstanding. The Extreme is connected to a high speed cable modem in an upstairs study and the express is placed in a downstairs family room. I'm accessing the Internet via the Express with an iPad, a laptop, an iPhone, and a Blu Ray player and have experienced no problems whatsoever.
