    Useless if you needed to change the Mac Address on the WAN port

    • Written by from ALHAMBRA

    I think, if any techie personnel reads my feedback, they'll understand exactly the frustration I'm having.

    If you can't change the hardware mac address on the WAN port, there are a lot of ISP that won't give you an IP address over the DHCP network with a different device of any kind. This item is actually completely useless to me.

    This thing is Amazing FAST and a breeze to setup

    • Written by from Chula Vista

    its faster than muy wireless modem.. its recognized and setup buy my iphone.. works amazing in distance , and just super happy with the Air play... i would not recomend getting the Extreme vertion for USB harddrive back ups or use in general.. USB Ethernet- Wireless drives are really really slow.. just go for a Ethernet or USB 3

    Using as the Ethernet source to my HTR-4065 Yamaha

    • Written by from Vancouver

    Just got a new 5.1 channel Yamaha receiver from Costco. It has AirPlay but only an ethernet port. I used the AirPort Express to wirelessly connect to my existing Linksys WRT400N dual band wireless router. The AirPort Utility walked me through the process although some of the questions the wizard asked me took some time to figure out and I did reset the unit to factory defaults a couple of times because I messed it up. Now the soft green light is on and my Yamaha stereo is happy. The AirPlay feature on my iPhone actally wakes the receiver up from standby and out comes music. Too cool

    Awesome

    Bought this after reading some posts online. Wanted to extend my network (airport extreme). It was ridiculously easy to setup. Plugged it in, connected my iPad, settings ->wifi, entered my network password and that's it. Works great.

    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.

    Returned the first day

    • Written by from germantown

    I bough this hoping to extend my Wi-Fi, but sadly it failed. It never connected to my router in the first place, I rested it and restored it to factory default 3 times. I tried a lot of times and it never connected. Very disappointing with this product. I looked at the booklet in side and look at my router. The router was perfectly capable but every time my iPhone said "An unexpected error has accored, please try again"

    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.

    • 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.

    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.
