    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!

    Not working very well

    • Written by from Belmont

    I've had this for about a year and it's never really worked right. Seems to drop constantly, unable to extend my network, just isn't stable. Very disappointing.

    This is very good

    • Written by from West Drayton

    I find this very good, my only negative is that the USB port is only for a printer and can not support an external drive. Also, i actually prefer the previous design where the whole thing plugged in to the electric socket instead of this design where there is a cable. Other than that, I find it to be very good and reliable, and incredibly easy to set up.

    Shockingly Bad

    • Written by from Fairfield

    Do not buy this. I bought it to create wireless printing capability for my new iMac and to boost the wireless signal. The wireless printing works, but the wireless signal is appalling. It only works intermittently and the signal from the cable company supplied router is actually stronger.

    In short, not worth it.

    Extened my network range easily with a few taps from my iPhone. Don't know why I didn't do this sooner.

    Excelent!

    • Written by from Lowell

    I bought this some months ago and I have to say that its the best router that I've had. I would never switch to another router. My Wi-Fi speed is absolutely powerful. I would totally recommend this product, trust me its worth the $200.

    Not Good

    • Written by from Sheffield

    Ive been using Airport Express for years but sadly this new generation is far from stable. It disconnects from the network and has to be manually connected, and then fingers crossed it will stay online. I have to add before I bought this box the old one worked fine.

    My advise is if you can find an alternative system then use it. £79 is far too much for something that doesn't work properly

    I expected better

    • Written by from Maple Ridge

    The Bad
    --Does not play well with other routers - May or may not be related to the second issue
    --Frequently requires complete reset - Sometimes in 1 hour, sometimes 2 weeks
    --Low-to-moderate connectivity - 5 feet away feels same as 50 feet
    --5G doesn't work - Super slow and only works for about a minute, then it just hangs until next reset

    The Good
    --Super simple to setup
    --Compact
    --Generally has enough bandwidth for Netflix (only on 2.4ghz)

    Overall Experience : Disappointing
    --Barely an improvement from the dumpster router it replaced.
    --Gave me a lot of grief. Took a lot of effort to achieve stability, I suspect this is caused by non-apple routers in the network.

    Best wifi router on the planet with an affordable price

    • Written by from San Francisco

    This adorable Wifi router known as AirPort Express, is an exceptional performer that is appropriately priced for its size and function. Due to living in a condo that shares the network with a bunch of users using different wifi routers and networking devices, this little wifi router works extra hard to give you the accessibility you need to go on the internet and also to maintain connection through other devices located in the room, for example like this wireless switch that operates through the wifi network in order to turn on and off the light in the bedroom. Neat and easy set up, provided by Apple technical service representative who would assist you with steps to help you configure your wifi router through the network set up so you can get the best results. And the price is just a great reason why this router is a great start up for those who are new to the network setup. I got this wifi router through Apple after ridding the router provided by Xfinity(Comcast). I do recommend you trying this little AirPort Express to see for yourself how affordable it can be.

    125V Only! USB port is such a disappointment!

    • Written by from Toronto

    I used it for a few days, the way to manage my network, and access everything over it is totally amazing. I use it to extend my Wi-Fi network, it does a great job, and remains easy to find on airport utility.
    However, the problem is that, the USB port provided only gives you the power to transfer information, not to get it going without power source! And please don't get it for travels. The power cord says 125V at the back! Don't plug it with higher voltage!
    The last thing I found annoying is that, when I was syncing with iTunes, which doesn't usually work with my old router[it's so bad]. Now, I can do that, while I'm doing that, the AirPort Utility doesn't allow me to change anything on the base station. Perhaps it's protecting my data, but AirPort Utility during that process will make it seem like the base station is not even within the range. Just don't forget the base station, everything should be fine.

    Instant Solution to My Problem

    • Written by from Duvall

    I've been having trouble for over a year getting a clear, strong data transfer rate between my Airport Extreme in the office and my Apple TV in the family room. Most days, movies would have to buffer for up to an hour or even longer before they were ready to play.

    I tried every quick fix I could think of: relocating the router, a wireless repeater, and even a powerline ethernet adapter. Nothing seemed to help much. I was on the verge of switching to a different router in the hope of getting more broadcast power. I resisted resorting to the Airport Express due to the cost, but none of the cheaper fixes were working.

    It only took about a minute to connect it up and about another minute to configure the Express to my network and suddenly my Apple TV finally works the way it's supposed to. Hi-res video is virtually instantaneous. No buffering problems at all.

    What made it totally worth it to me was the seamless set up. I can't count the number of hours I've spent troubleshooting my other solutions. But with the Express, my problem was fixed within 10 minutes of opening the box.

    FLAWLESS-Another great apple product!!!

    • Written by from Dickinson

    I have not had any problems with this product and have had it for going on 8 months.
    It was an addition to my existing home (1,800 Sq ft) network. 3TB time Capsule, AirPort Extreme and 1st Gen. AirPort (1st fl streaming) Express.

    Modem and Time Capsule are on 1st fl. and this unit is on 2nd fl. about 40' apart through a concrete wall and floor.This is my only wired connection.

    I use it to extend my network on 2nd fl for Apple TV, streaming music and surfing the net.

    I have read many of the lower rated reviews and as with any router- location is very important. Avoid electrical interference. Do not try to hide this unit if you expect great range-place at desk to shoulder height.

    If you need AAAdo router for multiple people like me you should get this device right now. If you have only 20 people on this network at once out of fifty it's lightning fast. Even if 50 are on this router it's still fast plus it has many great features. Buy this product now!

    Not what I wanted exactly....

    • Written by from BRONX

    Bought this at an apple store, after the rep assured me this will work as a repeater for my Fios router... he was wrong, very easy to set up and use, but just isn't compatible with the Fios Actiontec (the worst router i've ever owned btw)
    But i'm giving it a chance as an independent station for guests and air printing - i'll have to rethink my network layout and then hopefully i can properly utilize this nifty little gadget.

    worked great for a year

    • Written by from abbottstown

    I HAD one that worked well for the first year, then it started cutting out every now and then and it was all down hill from there. Once it started cutting out when playing music it was dead within 2 or 3 months. Would like another one but not gonna keep spending $100 every year for a new airport express.

    Great for Airplay

    • Written by from Brooksville

    I bought this about 2 months ago so I could use Airplay from my iPad Air. It does the job well and setup was very easy. My only complaint is that this 2nd gen Airport Express does not have AC wifi, which makes an otherwise great device antiquated. Apple should know by now that it's customers are generally willing to pay a bit more for for state-of-the-art technology, so there is really no excuse for this device to NOT be the perfectly matched companion to the AC wifi capable Airport Extreme. Apart from that, I am not disappointed.
