    Great Alternative to Motorola Router

    • Written by from San Antonio

    I moved into a student housing apartment and had a AT&T motorola DSL router which wouldn't broadcast a wifi signal to my Apple products. Only my Xbox 360 and HP laptop would get the wifi signal. So I finally gave up trying to fix the problem and bought an Airport Express! It worked on all my Apple products and window products without a glitch. Now I can get wifi on my iPad,iPhone,iMac,Apple TV along with the Xbox and laptop.
    I highly recommend this to all my friends and associates!
    Thanks Apple for coming through for me with the easy setup too!

    Skeptic from Reviews

    • Written by from Miami Beach

    After reading so many reviews, I was a bit skeptic but I figured I have 14 days to try it then return if I didn't like it, so here it goes...

    MY STORY:

    First of all I am using this device as a router. After buying, I did the setup (very easy by the way) and immediately started using it with the AirPlay (music) feature as well and connected it with speakers. I have had it for 3 weeks now and I haven't had a single issue with it. I spent $200 last year on a Linksys EA4500 router and from the start, the router often would not provide internet. I would have to restart it frequently to fix the issue but it would occur almost everyday. Until I got fed up and bought this one to replace it, which is a "downgrade" if you think about it.

    SPECS:

    Anyway, once, in these three weeks I did experienced an internet connection loss but I noticed that the AirPort Express "recognized" this and restarted all on its own! I was sitting next to it when it occurred but 5 secs later I was back online. I would consider the WiFi range to be decent but I really can't say much in this matter because I live in a 1,000 sq ft apartment; so, I get full signal almost everywhere. On this product's specifications it doesn't state the transfer rate, so I tested it, and, depending on your device, you may get up to 300 Mbps. I've used this AirPort Express connected with a Motorola Surfboard (Modem), MacBook Pro, iPhones, iPads, AppleTV, Canon Printer and a Sony VAIO (Windows). They all work perfectly fine with it.

    Hope this helps, good luck!

    A great upgrade!

    • Written by from New Westminster

    I upgraded from a previous router that was a different brand, and this is great! My laptop kept scrambling the lower band of my previous router, so I had to get a new one. I have lots of Apple gadgets, but own a desktop and laptop PC. Works great with all of them. Easy to setup and install. I like that it is small, like my Apple TV. Its a bit expensive for a router, but I've only ever had success with Apple products, so I'm happy with this purchase.

    Works Great

    • Written by from Price

    I purchased this to use in my two bedroom apartment and have a clear signal from anywhere inside. I haven't run into any interference from my neighbors wifi, and so far the only trouble I have had has been because of my internet provider. Simple set-up, and the guest network is great. I can also connect from outside of my apartment and have been connected from about 100 feet away, but that is pushing the limit of how far it can reach. This has been the most reliable wireless router I have used.

    flawless plug and play

    • Written by from chicago

    let me start by saying do not be afraid of this thing! it words like a charm, precisely as promised.

    Anyone who gave this a poor review has either misapplied this device or simply doesn't know what they are talking about. I previously had a non-apple wireless router. coverage was inadequate so i purchased a non-apple range extender. absolute junk! Ughhh. What a nightmare experience! i spent hours on top of hours playing with config. As engineer by day, i know what i'm doing, and i can only imagine a novice attempting. i said, "to heck with this," and returned the device and said, "we just aren't' there yet. never again!"

    I read some reviews and bought a airport extreme router. wow! got coverage where we previously didn't and speeds lightning fast (inSSIDer coverage detection software).

    the airport extreme gave sufficient coverage, but still didn't have coverage in the far reaches upstairs. i was so afraid of this airport express, or any range extender, from my previous range extending experiences. I witnessed how well the apple setup worked at friends houses, and gave it a try. literally 2 mins and you're off to the races. nothing to mess with. it just plugs in, simple setup, and best of all IT WORKS!

    last comment: i was afraid of the limited set up features. After owning for 2 wks, i am so glad there is nothing to mess with. it's perfect! my devices have no issues switching from extreme to express and back and forth. network speeds have not been effected. it works seamlessly, as all just mentioned were issues i've had with non-apple product. just spend the extra $$ and buy the apple product. the time saved and awesome performance is worth it. hope this helps any reluctant buyers.

    Very pleased...

    • Written by from Allen Park

    I have had this for about a year now and it's worked 100% of the time. Setup is easy with the app on my phone / Mac Mini. Took me about 10 minutes to set it all up and haven't touched it since. Good range through my old house with plaster walls that have wire mesh in them that other wireless routers have not worked very well. I would buy it again.

    Extreme express dream

    • Written by from oregon

    Had poor internet reception in certain rooms and got the AirPort Express. Works beautifully even with the Panda Wireless usb wifi adapter. You place the express in the room you need it. We did not use the wired connection. We used the express wirelessly to connect to the AirPort Extreme. It will attach wirelessly with even a weak wifi signal, and the express boosts that signal dramatically. It took very little time to set up. Easy to access, easy to install, easy to use. It is the size of the Apple TV second gen. We now get great wifi in all rooms, with no slowing down. Every room accesses the wifi as if the AirPort Extreme is in that room. Great for iPhones, iPads and all wifi devices.

    Better than my Linksys router

    • Written by from Everett

    After doing lots of research, I decided This router best suited my needs. Very simple to install, And improved my wifi range all the way out to most of my backyard (1300sq ft rambler). This also solved my airplay issues I was having while playing videos. The speed seems slightly faster than my Linksys router, and I've not had any drops in connection like my last router that occurred quite often. It also looks very clean and simple on my computer desk.

    I've been a prisoner to my ancient verizon router that can not even run 802.11n. Once i got this i connected it to my verizon router through an ethernet and created my own network. I thought I was going to have issues because my printer is on my old network, but someway I can still print! The speed is amazing!!! I highly recommend this product

    Useful in CONCRETE & STEEL building!!

    • Written by from Ottawa

    Awesome product. I have two of these bouncing the signal to the furthest recesses of my house. I live in a 3000+ sq. ft. concrete house with steel paned concrete slabs, rebar in concrete and OWS joists between floors. Main router is in my basement and I have two of these boxes (on each of the two floors above). Works fantastically well. Noteworthy: my version is the older one (one box is 3 years old and the other is 2), this newer version must be better. p.s. - I don't work for Apple : )

    Great for Extending

    • Written by from San Angelo

    I live in a large house and had poor wifi reception on one end. I bought the Apple Express router and set it up in my kitchen which is halfway between the router and the other end of my house. Setup was very easy with my iPad. It went ahead and gave me the option to extend my wireless network from a Time Machine router I have in my living room. Now I can receive excellent service in the troubled area. Great fix for the price!
