    Airport Express

    • Written by from SAN JOSE

    Just purchased this yesterday to extend my wifi range for Apple TV in family room, and it WORKS LIKE A CHARM! Streamed all movies and content from internet connection through Comcast and had no stops or pauses playing them. It truly did extend my signal further out to the other end of the house, thank you Apple!

    easy to setup

    • Written by from Clarence Center

    I plugged it in in my family room and before I could walk to my Mac, my son called out that Airport Utility had spontaneously opened on his Mac. In moments, I had clicked to add the Express to our home network, checked iTunes and saw it was already listed as a selection to play AirTunes. I can't imagine anything easier.

    Huge Improvement

    • Written by from Saratoga

    This week I upgraded from the "wall wort" version. I get a much stronger signal much further away.
    I use the Express as a bridge/extender from a time capsule that I also use as a router.
    The connection process was much easier also.
    Highly recommended.

    Works Great in 5G mode

    • Written by from Sacramento

    I had bought and returned three wireless routers from best buy until I finally talked to geek squad and they recommended the Apple airport express or extreme. I now have no problems with new iPad mini or my iPad second gen loosing connection while on the 5 gh connection. A Belkin and two different net gears would keep kicking me off. Thanks geek squad and apple.

    I used this to connect it to my xbox through an ethernet and used this to extend my network. Works very well and is easy to use.

    Less options than previously

    • Written by from Toulouse

    I expected it to be the best to play music with airplay, but the output level is too loud for my external loudspeaker with built-in amplification.

    In addition to the bad side, the level of Wifi can not be tuned anymore in Airport v6.x (9even if it was announced possible in the online description)! and whereas it was possible in previous Airport v5.x.

    So easy to configure... because there is less to configure !

    Easy to Install, Easy to Use

    • Written by from Vancouver

    To be honest I am not an expert of networking stuff. I have used many different kinds of wireless routers. While most of them do work, they need some knowledge to setup and maintain, many times I encountered unknown disconnections and I had to restart them and prayed the problems get solved.
    Then I read a lot of information on AirPort, and Apple released the new generation, so I decided to get one. It ended up to be a great decision.
    The install was really easy, just like all Apple products, and the AirPort Utility app gives great visual information on the networking, and changing setup is so easy too. Also the WiFi is very stable, all wireless devices working great! I never see the connectivity limited icon again!
    Plus I haven't even put good use for the AirPlay function or connecting printer yet.
    In conclusion, great product! Worth the money!

    Magic!

    • Written by from HADDONFIELD

    I have a pretty complex home network, with an Extreme Base Station and two previous-generation Expresses that extend the wireless network. I got this Express to extend it even further, plugged it in, and before I had a chance to open up the Airport Utility and change all sorts of settings, the utility opened up, assumed I wanted to extend the network again (!!), and the default settings it offered made sense. I know that this is largely due to the new Airport Utility, but magic is still magic. Range is very good, power consumption is minimal. Great gizmo.

    MARVELOUS!

    • Written by from Fayetteville

    This is better than the last AP Express. Great for extending my coverage over such a wide floor plan in my one story house. Also the usb port & Ethernet is great for external hard drives or shared NAS. Now I have end to end wifi coverage plus with the guest network! Great Job as always Mr. Jobs. GOD Bless You!

    Great Product and some help with setup

    • Written by from West Palm Beach

    This is a wonderful product. As to the one star reviews I encountered a similar problem where it keeps asking for the password but there is a simple solution for most I think. If you are using it to extend the range on your existing extreme router for example, when you get to the part where it wants the password to connect it. It doesn't want the password you would normally use to connect a device to your wireless. It wants the password for the main router itself that you setup the day you put it in. Once you know this and enter that password problem solved. Hope it helps someone.

    No gigalan

    • Written by from Hong Kong

    Pity that this device has faster wireless speed capacity than the LAN/WAN ports with only 10/100 speed. I wanted to use this one in my home due to smaller size than the Extreme but with this speed it's quite a disappointment that the wired side was not brought up to 1GB speed. And yes, my ISP supplies 1GB speed.

    it helps

    • Written by from dalton

    I bought this product to hopefully help handle over 10 of the wireless devices in my home. it does great for such a little router. It's fast, and its really really easy to set up, I actually set it up by using my iPhone. No hassle, easy and quick, I recommend this product.

    Works with Uverse

    • Written by from Collinsville

    I purchased the new AE to expand my wireless area in my house and allow for greater flexibility of device locations. I have a PC with Win 7 64 and my internet comes by way of AT&T Uverse. the RG Uverse supplies operates on 802.11g and my PC is wired in. I needed to move my PC to an area where there were no ethernet outlets and at temps of 105 outside, I really did not want to be in my attic running new wires. I also had some dead spots in my master suite. This little unit works like a charm, I had to use my iPad to configure it but there really was not much to it. My only complaint would be that I have no idea how to configure it with a PC. I am writing this review on my PC that is now wireless, and my iPad, iPhones, iPods and Apple TV's are all working perfectly and I can still connect to my set top boxes with my Uverse remote app. At a $100 bucks a pop you really can't beat the ease of connection. I may get one more for my master suite just so I can place my tv where ever I so desire.

    No Longer For The Road Warrior

    • Written by from Battle Creek

    I returned to my Hong Kong hotel today to find my Airport Express had fried. As with most, i believe it overheated streaming music. But, it was two years old so time for a change. I rushed out to buy a replacement to find that the design had changed. What a disappointment.
    As my job requires me to be on the road for half the year, i do not want a larger device with a giant cord. The salesperson told me that i could still use the old plugs from my previous model so i was suckered in to buying it.
    Back in my room i found it thinner but at least 25% larger overall. The plug does NOT work with the airport because even the smallest US plug blocks the WAN port so no data is received.
    Sadly, i am stuck with this device until I run across the previous model again. I will likely be buying two of those and leaving this at home on my next trip.
    Very disappointed Apple.

    Nice upgrade...

    • Written by from Austin

    ...to my 6 year old airport express that died when I had to get a new router. The set up went smoothly using my 6 year old iMac. I use the AEBS connected to my surround sound stereo and an amp to power the speakers in my backyard since my receiver isn't powerful enough to handle the load. I can play all of the music from my iTunes library using my iMac, iPhone, and iPad. The only issue is that I have to use an Ethernet cable connected to my AT&T Uverse box because I can't stream wirelessly for some reason. I will probably figure it out later when I am not taking care of the clan.

    If it doesn't work perfectly just exchange it

    • Written by from Encino

    Please don't be discouraged by the one star reviews stating this unit doesn't work. It should work perfectly, and if it doesn't, just exchange it: I purchased this unit for my daughter to extend the range of our wireless network (served by an older Airport Express) to her room and allow her to stream music. I know one should be able to plug the unit in, set it up in under 15 minutes, and have it to work flawlessly for years. However, setting this unit up failed several times requiring hard resets. Once finally set up, every device in my house could connect to this unit except my daughter's iPhone 4S running iOS 6. A call to AppleCare determined that the unit was indeed faulty, and the Apple store cheerfully exchanged it for another. The second unit was a breeze to set up, and has been working perfectly in every way, as it should.
