    fast and consistent speeds

    • Written by from Riverside

    I purchased the airport extreme to increase the wifi range and consistency of my home network. i live in a 1000 sq ft apartment and my $40 netgear router wasn't doing the job. purchased the airport extreme thinking i would back up my macbook over wifi, but found the speeds to be inconsistent and comparable to what i was getting with the $40 netgear router. returned the extreme and picked up the express. i am so happy i did. i get my advertised cable speeds at 30 Mbps consistently throughout the day. well worth the money and recommend to anyone who is considering upgrading router.

    Love It

    • Written by from Browns Mills

    The AirPort Express works as advertised. It is super fast and set-up for 4 computers, an Apple TV, iPad, and 2 iPhones took less than ten minutes. The unit comes in a very small form factor; matching the size of the Apple TV. If you want an easy to configure wireless router I would definitely suggest paying the extra few dollars for this unit.

    Good product

    • Written by from Pensacola

    I've been using an Airport Express for over six months and it's fast, reliable and works well with other Apple products like Wake on Demand and can be used to Airplay audio.

    The size and shape is almost the same as a 2nd or 3rd gen. Apple TV. The price is a little high, but they can be found online a little cheaper than on Apple's site.

    supports PPPOE

    • Written by from Moses Lake

    I used this in conjunction with a Netgear DSL modem/router combo. I configured the Netgear to run in modem only. I was happy to discover that the Airport Express could handle all the other chores, like negotiating the PPPOE connection, DHCP, NAT, and everything else. On top of all that, it was incredibly easy to configure.

    Airport express is amazing

    • Written by from Cudahy

    I bought this router because my current Dlink dir-615 that I've had for about 3 years now was giving me issues. I would have to turn it on and off about once a week and my Internet connection would drop on my iPad but would work fine with my other apple devices. At first I was struggling to install it because I would get a message saying there was a DNS error so I did my homework and found out that when it comes to hardware devices the best thing to do is to shut down the power of previous router, airport express and MacBook Pro for about ten minutes and then power all the devices back on. Airport express works extremely great and I also noticed speed enhancement. Very satisfied with this product :)

    Don't know whay so many people had problems (get the Airport Utility APP!)

    • Written by from Moyock

    From the moment you power the router on using my iPhone to program it was the easiest setup of a router I've even done. I'm using it with a Vonage adapter and a original Xbox using Ethernet and both work fine. Without the App (Airport utility) you can don the basics of the wireless setup but the router did want to go into bridge mode as it was plugged into the Vonage and was continuing that (makes sense if that's what I wanted)
    Using the airport utility I was able to set it up as it's own router so it was separate than the Vonage and having the Xbox then plugged into the Ethernet port of the express allows my iPhone, computers etc to see it. I was also able to set up the XBOX on a DMZ zone allowing all access to it so my NAT type was open. With the app also you can set up a wireless printer easily using WPS.
    Everything you can do on most routers this makes it easy using the app. If you have a computer can can even more options than the app gives you, again you just have to install the airport utility on those if you want to configure the router from them.

    I originally have 2 Linksys router, I replaced the 1 with a newer one, then replaced that with the apple router. Both routers before I was forever unplugging the router at least once a month sometimes once a week or even once a day to get them going again. The apple I can honestly say been using it for about 6 months and not have to reboot it once.
    Great router!!

    I'm impressed

    • Written by from Vashon

    I have two older Airport Express (3 or so yrs old). This new version vastly increased my coverage and everything is much faster!!! I do wish they had the option like the old units to plug directly to the wall without a cord for portability but that is my ONLY complaint. Well worth $99

    Fantastic!

    • Written by from Greenville

    Purchased an airport express to extend wireless signal into my bedroom which had very poor coverage. I use an airport extreme as my primary router. Within minutes of opening the box, my bedroom had great wifi coverage. Great product. Very easy set up. Seamless integration with other apple products. Great purchase. Thanks, Apple!

    Airport Express 70% speed boost

    • Written by from Eden

    I just added an Airport Express to my network yesterday to allow more simultaneous devices to be connected, and to setup a guest network. The installation had one small problem - I received an error message - "an unexpected error occurred. Please try again". The written setup guide that came with the Airport Express indicated that if there were any problems the first thing to try is powering down the modem and Airport Express, then power back up. Once I did that, everything was flawless. Now the best news - I did speed tests before and after on what was already a fast home network. The download speeds increased by a minimum of 70%. The system has been operating flawlessly and we can now connect our 10 devices without any problem, and still have 40 additional connections left over. Very impressive piece of equipment from Apple.

    Great little router

    • Written by from Longwood

    I purchased this router to replace a Cisco router that was at least 4 years old and had a very weak/no signal in some of the rooms of my single story, 1900 sq. ft. house.

    The new router was very easy to setup and took less than 10 min. When I setup the router, I used the same network name, password and password security (PSA/PSA2/etc) my old router used. I took this action to eliminate the need to change the network name/password on all of the devices I use (laptop, printer, IPod, etc).

    I now get a signal in every room of my house. The Apple router is worth the price.

    Awesome product

    • Written by from Rockford

    I had a router that came from a CERTAIN TERRI BLE cable company and my service kept cutting out every 5 minutes. I finally discovered it was the router. I turned down said cable company's offer to send a new one for a fee and went out and bought this. i love it. ive had it for about 2 weeks and it has never once cut out. It's one of the best apple products I have ever bought!

    Added the Apple AirPort Express as a piggy back router to our NetGear Wifi Router and the connection in our house soared immediately. Moved the AirPort Express farther away from where the NetGear Router is located. Definitely a Buy!

    This is very good

    • Written by from West Drayton

    I find this very good, my only negative is that the USB port is only for a printer and can not support an external drive. Also, i actually prefer the previous design where the whole thing plugged in to the electric socket instead of this design where there is a cable. Other than that, I find it to be very good and reliable, and incredibly easy to set up.

    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.

    So Good, I own Five of Them!

    • Written by from Mount Dora

    I first used the Gen I Express to create a wifi network in my apartment while on vacation in Italy. The landlord was so impressed, the next year he put them in all the apartments.

    I use a Gen II (hard-wired) to extend the wifi upstairs in my old house. This little gem is so, so versatile. Also, I use three of them (Gen I) around my house to connect my various stereo systems to Airplay. You don't need to buy an Airplay receiver, just slap one of these babies on with a Toslink or RCA cable and you're good to go.

    The only thing I would like to see is for it to have Gigabit ethernet jacks for faster throughput. Otherwise, it's perfect!

    Simply works. Good looking too.

    • Written by from Cranbrook

    I have an airport extreme as my main router, which itself was a huge leap forward in stability, speed and simplicity from the d-link I had. But we live on an acreage with an extra building about 70 feet away and I got the Express as a range extender.

    It's a square, white hockey puck with a nice power cord.

    I plugged it into the wall. It gave me three options. I chose extend an existing network. I clicked that. I counted to 45. It worked. I now have equal speed wifi in our out building, same as in the main house. Success. It's pretty too.

    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.

    LIFE SAVER WHILE TRAVELLING AND IDIOT-PROOF

    • Written by from New York

    This very portable device solved my e-mail access problems in Japan and I could set it up in one minute without lokking at instructions (which were in Japanese anyway).

    My problem was that in most hotels and public wi-fi hotspots, my e-mail/IS provider (TwWC-Roadrunner) blocked access from my iPad to its POP and SMTP servers even with secure server access disabled. Since many hotels in Japan offer free in-room wired WAN connection, I decided to create my own wi-fi network after unsuccessfully trying to retrieve mail through a portable wi-fi device running on one of the super-fast Japanese 4-G networks. That solved my problem and setting up the Airport Express (called Mac Express in Japan) was practically automatic using an iPad. Will never travel without that great device.

    M.G.
