    Excellent!

    • Written by from Lytle Creek

    After many rounds of frustration with Netgear routers and extenders, I decided to give this Airport Extreme a try. They do have a great return policy...It simply just worked, out of the box. Set up was very intuitive and simple, and it immediately recognised the Airport express that I use as an extender. I coould not be more pleased with this product, especially since this isn't a spare time/hobby for me, but I use it for work 24/7. I had it in service for 3 weeks now, and it has been flawless, meaning I don't even know it's there. Precisely the opposite of other brands I have owned before. It is hard wired to a satellite modem, my 2 computers, printer and airport express are tied into it. While expensive, I am very glad I went with this set of routers. All my other apple wireless devices like ipad, iphone and apple tv talk to it flawlessly. Guests with Androids etc also have no issue connecting to my guest network. Time will tell if it is durable and can take power outages etc. But so far, so very very good. I downloaded the utility for it on all my devices, but it had already began to work before I got done downloading. My kind of equipment.

    Solved my problems!

    • Written by from Kennesaw

    Had to call Apple support to walk me though the set-up but the support was fast and painless once I was pointed to the "Settings" app on my iPad. The AirPort Extreme is seamlessly supporting multiple i-devices and Smart TV's without the buffering I was experiencing with just the Motorola Cable modem alone. Great product so far, worth every penny!

    Love this wireless device!

    • Written by from Chevy chase

    I was dreading replacing our old router, but the setup process for the AirPort Extreme couldn't have been any easier. We keep our modem and router on the top floor of our 4 story house and the signal is really strong on all 4 levels, even in the basement. The internet connection is super fast too. Another great product from Apple!

    Far MORE THEN EXPECTED!

    • Written by from Crown Point

    Have ran a other brand name router for over 10 years yes N speed etc. but was having issues! Come too find out it was not the router! But seeing at the time I would upgrade why not go HIGH END! ( the old one was still better rated then some of the new! Going into my parents house now!) But my IPhone 6 is the only thing with he AC Speed. But when I would be in my barn working the iPhone would work as long as the door was open! LOL Now with the door closed I still get full signal and if I was more then 200' from the house i lost the wifi signal! Now I can be over 300yards from the house and still be connected! SO YES THE AIR PORT EXTREME HAS FAR SURPASSED WHAT I WAS EXPECTING AT THE BEST!!!

    Made all the difference, really like it

    • Written by from San Antonio

    I was skeptical that this router would fix some of the range and throughput issues that I was having. I took a chance and was glad that I did. It extended the range over my previous router that Time Warner provided significantly. Throughput is great and the added bonus of wi-fi support for 802.11ac is fantastic. My iPhone 6 and Macbook Pro fly now and other legacy wi-fi enabled devices are working a lot better including two Roku 3s, Samsung tablet, Xbox One and other devices.

    I should have bought an Airport Extreme a long time ago!

    • Written by from LAVAL

    Installation took no more than 5 minutes, literally. And finally no more signal dropping. Signal is reaching every corner of the house (basement + 2 storeys), even outside on my driveway. Connection speed is at 300 Mbps on my 802.11n devices/laptops. I have at least 10 devices connected to it. I'm eager to check the speed it on 802.11ac devices.

    Got rid of signal dropping? yes. Delighted? yes. Paid a bit more? Yes. Recommend it to a friend? absolutely.

    If you do not need to create VLAN's and do crazy stuff, then this router is a no-brainer for home use -should you be willing to spend the extra bucks. For me, it's worth it. I highly recommend it.

    Simply works

    • Written by from Nort Hills

    Were an audio video integrator we don't do very complex networks due to us leaving wifi as a last resort for anything other than mobile devices. Installed a Ubiquiti system with no one but myself connected and i was getting an average of 12-15 m down .. took out the "Fancy router and AP .. plugged one of these guys in and 100+ down which is what the client was paying for. just a week ago a client had some dlinks as APs performed poorly.. took them out placed 5 Extremes (Big house) in the same location as the not so old equipment and boom .. from 8 to 50+ now which is what they are paying for .. These things work. plain and simple easy to set up .. easy to use and open ports.... unless you really need to create vlans and get crazy (which is 90% of the time not the case) this is the best product to get .. period

    Fixed my problem!

    • Written by from Norfolk

    I was having a lot of wi-fi internet problems. My network would stop working, sometimes I couldn't connect to it, sometimes the speed would decrease considerably for no intelligible reason. I got a new modem and a new router but the problems persisted.

    A friend recommended this to me but I was reluctant due to the high cost compared to its competitors. As with all Apple products, you get what you pay for. I haven't explored many of the advanced features but it has completely solved my network issues. And it's super fast. I can consistently get over 50 Mbps (with my last set-up I maxed out at about 20).

    Bottom line: it's expensive but you get what you pay for.

    Solid Router

    • Written by from Scituate

    This is a very solid router. I hooked it up to my Comcast service and set it up in about 10 minutes. It works seamlessly. I noticed a strong speed increase across all of my devices - iPhones, iPads, and laptops - and the range was greatly improved. I have coverage on my back deck that I didn't have before with a strong signal. I highly recommend.

    Set this up using my Macbook. Was the easiest router I have ever set up. Easier to set up than apples wireless keyboard and trackpad even, and those were really easy.

    Great wifi performance

    • Written by from Miami

    I set one of these up as a wireless access point at work (10,000 sq ft building) and all of our wireless problems went away. Works great with our Double Robot running an iPad air and all other devices windows or PC. Wireless N and AC performance are great in any part of the building with at least 10 users.

    Great router for apple wireless devices and external peripherals

    • Written by from Aizkraukle

    Bought this router from local reseller in Riga. I've had few problems with previous router, that was working only on 2.4GHz, because of bluetooth interference (apple keyboard and trackpad). Then I decided to buy a new router, that is AC and can go dual band 2.4 / 5 GHz. So, bought this router. The setup was easy with airport utility. Also tried to connect old printer with USB to the back of router, and it worked even better than expected. Also tried to connect my USB flash drive to a router's USB port, and on both MacBooks (late 2013 retina, 13") we have, we could use it as external drive / time machine backup drive. Also the usb drive it can be used for files sharing.
    When using 5 GHz, the signal is great and bluetooth isn't interfering any more, because it works on his own 2.4 GHz. Can't tell anything about the range, because our apartment isn't that big to test the range.

    Very solid. Uptime for wireless is excellent

    • Written by from Sheboygan

    I bought the airport extreme to replace my badly behaving d-link (their top of the line model). The old one required me to power cycle it several times a day, so I knew its days were limited. The airport extreme has been a solid performer for me. I think setup was just about the easiest ever for me in a router. I used the airport utility on my iPhone and I was up and running in under 15 minutes. It just works!

    So far so good

    • Written by from Murrieta

    Not being computer literate, still on my iphone4, waiting for my new 6, I purchased AppleTV and was talked into the AirPort Extreme which after my son face timing me through the set up of my new tower going through my existing Verizon router, it was a cinche. I am now able to use wifi, on my 60" flat screen in the family room, my 30" f/s in my bedroom, my iPad ,iPhone, AppleTV, Galaxy tablet, my dads of cell phone, and a acre computer plugged into the AirPort Extreme. All using the wifi 24/7, with out any problems. Also had a friend over and he was using my wifi and could not believe how fast it was now compared to my Verizon router. Granted it was a costly $200.00 but Verizon wanted $129. For their upgraded router and an additional $10.00 per month for the upgrade. So I believe it's a win win for myself. I don't have much music on my devices like most but for what I'm using it for, it's perfect for me.
