    Less range then 8 y.o. 1st gen Express

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    This new Airport Express is cute and all, but it has less range then our 8 year old 1st generation Airport Express. We use these in the apartment for "wireless" speakers and to extend the range of our Airport Extreme. We thought that this new one would help with intermittent connectivity in one of the further away rooms that the old Express lived in, but boy were we sorely wrong. This new one's reach wasnt even close to what the old one had. We also have a 2009 Mac Mini in this room and that too has a much farther range then this thing. We now have it living in a room that's closer to the Extreme. So far so good, but it's only been 10 minutes, so anything can happen. Your milage may very. FYI: The room that it didnt work in is about 12 feet away, but is separated by 3 walls (with 2 doorways).

    So good!

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    I had two previous airport express base stations. One started on fire internally and the other just didn't last. I spent the last 3 years switching routers and just came back to this one. Yes it is more expensive than comparable models but the set up is so easy. AirPlay and wifi printing are awesome. Plus I can configure 100% wirelessly. The others required me to configure first by direct connect and then wireless connection. Oh and the range and speed are so much better. I just hope this one doesn't burn and lasts.

    Unusable - constantly drops network

    • Written by from Toronto

    Purchased this to extend the network from my Time Capsule and in "extend a network" mode it is constantly dropping the network requiring a reboot to join again then drops again after 5-15 minutes. Works slightly better in "join a network" mode. Had to go back to my previous generation Airport Express which isn't as fast but is perfectly reliable.

    There are many with the same issues yet no firmware update has been issued by Apple, Google "new airport express extend drops network" to see the scope of the issue.

    Amazing!!

    • Written by from Espanola

    Just purchased the Airport Express & am very happy with it. It was easy to set up & I love how I can stream my music from all of my Apple products to my Bose using Airplay. Excellent wi-fi connection. Very happy with this purchase. Excellent customer service prior to purchase. Another home run for Apple.

    Near perfect

    • Written by from St. John's

    I've had this router since June 2012 and it has been nearly flawless. Integrates perfectly in my apple ecosystem. Fast, reliable, easy to set up and use.

    Airport Express

    • Written by from Warrenton

    I use five Airport Expresses along with an eight megabyte Mac Mini and Time Capsule to listen to music throughout my home. I work at home and can go anywhere in the house, including front and back yards, and never leave my music behind, usually. Sometimes I dream of the old days of flipping records because my music didn't quit, stammer, or stutter for no apparent reason, or require me to reboot my computer or Airport Expresses, or restart iTunes to restore all of the Airport Expresses, or have Airport expresses dropout completely, or require me to make sure that not more than one MacBookPro isn't running Time Machine, or use the microwave oven. Numerous phone calls to Apple, countless trips to forums, and Apple Store Geniuses (nothing against Apple Store Geniuses, they are the backbone of Apple customer service) without a solution. I continue to use AirPlay, formally Air Tunes, to listen to music but often times concoct ways to have a hard wired system.

    Express upgrade

    • Written by from cottonwood

    No Doubt this is an upgrade from thePrior express models! set up took less then 2 minutes. Good signal even on my front porch & Back Yard. Guest feature is a plus. Only wished I could add a USB networked flash drive from the USB port.

    Excellent

    • Written by from Mohnton

    I ordered this product last Friday, and it arrived today, thought it was late due to delays because of Hurricane Sandy. Got it set up in about 10 minutes, and its great! I have my MacBook Pro hooked up, and am streaming iTunes to it via AirPlay. The performance of it is great!

    Airport Paper weight

    • Written by from murfreesboro

    Just bought a new AirPort Extreme hooked it up and set up the wireless, easy. I tried to connect a printer to it and there is no menu or setup to do so after selecting the base station. Then I tried to expand network and it locked up and I can't reset it. So now I own a $200 paper weight. I would give it no stars but I can't.

    Cheap WIFI

    • Written by from Seattle

    My Dad has an EMac computer hooked up directly to a cable modem. By spending a hundred dollars I now am able to use fast WIFI at his home. I simply ran his cable into the WAN port and hooked an old Ethernet CAble I had out the LAN to his machine, nothing changed for him, but his house now has password protected WIFI for his guests to use during visits.
    Used my MAC Book Pro to set it up, took all of 3 minutes, couldn't have been easier.
    Fast, Simple and Cheap!

    Peace in the household

    • Written by from Gatineau

    Tried many wifi routers, this one was the first one to connect everyone's devices in the household without problem. Coverage is great and handles multiple and simultaneous session without a problem. Apple TV works flawlessly for the first time. Never had to reset while this was a regular activity with all previous routers. VERY easy set up, event to add share printer and airprint.

    Easy setup - Fast

    • Written by from Manchester

    Easy to setup. I successfully connected wirelessly with my apple TV, macbook, 2 iPhones, nook and a netbook. Airstream works great along with the airplay to my apple TV.

    There are over 30+ wireless networks in the area and no problem with interference!!

    Dont wasted your money

    • Written by from cheektowaga

    It slow down my actual internet speed connection. does not support airport printing. if you connect any other wireless router you can see the difference in speed. So if you are going to spend this kind of money do it in a better wireless router, just because is apple in this case, it does not really perform.

    Inconvenient Design

    • Written by from McLean

    This redesign is very disappointing. It's larger than the old version and it now requires a separate power cord, rather than plugging directly into the wall. These two design flaws make it much less portable. Portability was one of the greatest features of the old design - just unplug and go - instant WiFi wherever you wanted it...

    Easy set up

    It was very easy set up. But my wife will not be able to do it. I threw out my old linksys wireless router which was about 6 years old and was ready for a new one.

    Very disappointed

    • Written by from Scottsdale

    Bought this to supplement the WiFi range of my combination cable modem/router and to enable by wireless network printer. Using all Apple products (iMac, iPads, and iPhones), this was a very easy device to set up. After unpacking and connecting to the appropriate ports, the installation was fairly intuitive and I was up-and-running in less than 10 minutes. The initial use of this device was successful with both a working wireless printer and improved WiFi range, although only slightly improved. After two days, though, the printer stopped wirelessly responding on my network. This was despite my not changing any settings, then trying to get it back on-line unsuccessfully.

    Since the WiFi range was minimally improved and the wireless printer function was not enabled, considering the $100+ investment with tax for an unreliable accessory, I brought back the device and got my money back..
