    Did NOT know

    • Written by from newark

    I am only giving it 4 stars because it in the set up guide it does not tell you that you also have to do an extra set up on the computer by going to the wireless set up and clicking assist me, but I mean I am using this for my college dorm so it might be a different. But, Overall it has worked and it is defiantly good for a college dorm like mine who does not have wireless. Also, apple should defiantly have a set up guide for college dorms

    Great looking device at good price ;)

    • Written by from Burbank

    I was looking for better router in good price, needed better range in the kitchen area, and that's what I got, from 10 Mbps to up to 30 Mbps, Internet is very fast. But there is one problem with this router, it keeps disconnecting every couple minutes for at least a second. It was working great first 2 days, that's the part I'm disappointed. The old router net gear worked 2 years and not a single restart ($25). I'm give it 4 star and see how this router will do in couple months.

    Problem solver

    • Written by from simpsonville

    Replaced a 2 year old netgear n600 with this router and aside from having to update the firmware this thing has been a dream. Speedtest increased by 6mbps and no more connectivity issues. Connected to a charter cable modem this thing makes the best wifi network I've ever had.. Wifi kept dropping randomly And had no idea why, I live in a subdivision and the best I can guess there were interference issues with my old router but as soon as I got this one rolling and updated all is well. Aside from having to install airport utility app on my ipad from jump this thing has taken care of all of my problems. On top of that these things are easily chained to eliminate dead spots around your house.. I will be getting another one to put upstairs to strengthen my signal soon... It's also tiny so it takes up less than 50% of the space my old one did and it runs nice and cool so ventilation isn't an issue. Thanks again apple!

    I purchased the Airport Express yesterday out of frustration with my 2008 router. It was always so complicated when I needed to reset the old one. The Airport was super easy to set up. I am in a two story home and the signal is strong everywhere. Needless to say this is a major upgrade and I'm happy.

    Minor confusion for set up

    • Written by from Chicago

    Now that I have the product up and running it's fine. However, the instructions are not written very well. They tell you to plug in all the cables to the airport express and then plug into the outlet. It will glow solid amber and then blink amber until set up and connection are complete and it turns solid green. Well, I did exactly what it said and it was still blinking amber after several hours. There is nothing in the instructions saying that this should take maybe 5 minutes max. So I called, and the sales clerk wasn't entirely sure, but after awhile he suggested that I go online and create my network name and password first. I did this via my iphone since I had already disconnected my previous wireless router. After that everything was perfect and took no time at all. Not sure why the instruction booklet doesn't call this out. Kind of crucial to do this before unhooking everything. Device syncs awesome and I have already been able to print wireless from my iphone and my mac. I love convenience.

    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.

    Great little Product

    • Written by from the woodlands

    I purchased two of these with the intent of networking thru my three story home and my base station being at the lowest level. I set up the main unit in minutes and it worked immediately . I then went about setting the second unit on my second floor. This was more of an issue and this is the reason for the one star loss. The instructions did not show how to have the devices network! I had to in the end to talk to the Apple help line which the first person struggled and then the manager come on and explained a very simple solution. This was so simple it should have been in the small instruction booklet.
    I also take the unit on vacation with me so i ensure i have great wirless. I went to Mexico where the reviews showed poor reception in the rooms and connected the airport to the hardwire and immeditaly my apple devises were up and running.

    Works great! 5 Stars if USB supported external drives.

    • Written by from Columbia

    Just moving into our new home, and we needed a new router in a pinch. I knew it would be an Apple router, but very uncertain on which one. We decided to go with the Express and see if it would fit our needs and wants. Our home is just over 1500 sq/ft and this little router covers not just our house, but our entire lot. Full bars no matter where we were at on our property. We have a large backyard and front yard so I was very surprised by how powerful this little guy was. I even ran the OS X wireless diagnostics test, strength was strong throughout the house with very little noise. Towards the backyard the noise increased, but the mac showed full bars as so did my phone. The router is positioned dead center in our house, and depending on where you put yours could present different results.

    Great performance and easy setup

    • Written by from washington

    I use the express at home to extend my iTunes to my stereo and a 2nd one to a boom box next to my patio. I had one of the older ones that died after about 6 years and I bought the new version to replace it. I wish it was a bit smaller and still had the integrated plug for travel, but performance is great and setup is easy. I've used lots of netgear and linksys routers and find this much easier to set up and range is very good.

    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

    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.

    Consistent signal and data rate within a two-story colonial in a residential neighborhood. Very easy to setup. Price is a bit steep, but you get what you pay for. I never give 5 stars, but this one is pretty close.

    Just bought the airport express to replace an old router. Very easy to set up, the only drawback I found was trying to create a guest network. Instructions are very general, was not able to set one up. Not a big deal but still a bit disappointed. All in all a great product and would definitely recommend it

    Very easy to set up. Coverage better than First Generation Airport Express

    • Written by from Munising

    I was amazed how easy this device was to set up. I plugged it in, and it was recognized by my ipad. A few screens, input the password, and it has been working ever since.

    I am not a fan of the power cord- but I used the plug from the original airport express and it plugs into the wall just like the original version. Not the smooth form factor you would expect from Apple- but it works.

    I wish Apple would ship a legacy plug and the cord- that way I could still use the original airport (or give to someone else) instead of now hunting for a plug for it.

    Overall- I am pleased with the increased speed and range of my network (Gen 4 Airport Extreme).
