    Fantastic AEBS Comcast user !!!!!

    • Written by from Fort myers

    i purchased the latest september 2013 model Airport extreme base station and wow setup was super easy on the iMac!! The quality is outstanding the only issue was i had a comcast modem/router that interfered so i called comcast customer service to have the router switched off (which can only be done by phone)!! and i must say Download speeds are at 56mbps and uploads are 15mbps. My PS3 is super fast now:))

    It really is a must buy !! The negative reviews seem to be because they arent very tech smart or their other equipment is faulty modem, computer etc.... not the actual AEBS!

    When i looked for a router it was tough because there is so many but im sooooo glad i bought this.

    EASIEST SETUP EVER

    • Written by from Bremerton

    This has got to be the easiest setup I have ever encountered with a router. It took me longer to route the power cable then it did for me to set up the network. It was quick and easy with the AirPort Utility App on my MacBook Pro and all of my wireless equipment connected immediately.

    This signal strength throughout my house has seen a huge increase. I am just amazed and completely happy with my new AirPort Extreme!!!!!

    If you are in the market for a new AC compliant router I strongly recommend this product. I know it is a bit pricy but similar products from other manufacturers cost just as much.

    Works great!

    Upgraded from Gen4 Airport Extreme. Range is much better and set up with just as easy as normal. Speeds are better on iPad2 and iPhone 4S and excellent on iPhone 5S. I would definitely recommend this to a friend!

    'One-Stop-Shop' Top Quality Router

    • Written by from walnut creek

    Bought with scepticism but from a great, knowledgeable, friendly sales person.
    Hooked up my Huawei 4G LTE modem router, through ethernet flawlessly.
    Hooked up my Lian Li USB3 HDD cage with 5 HDD's perfectly.
    Streaming my 2TB movie collection to AppleTV, MacBook Air, iMac without stutter.
    (Library on iMac and media files on external HDD attached to router).
    Using one of the HDD's as time- capsule for my Mac's.

    This unit took me 2 mins to set up and looks so much better than I expected.
    Worth every cent when hooked up like this unit is hooked up.

    I thought Apple had lost me there for a while .... but my new Airport Extreme and new Macbook Air have made it so easy to stay committed.

    Better range compared to previous Airport Extreme.

    • Written by from San Francisco

    Never had any problem with previous Airport Extreme, but in new house my iPhone's Wifi dropped out. Office is 2 walls and 2 fridge freezer away from the Airport. This new Airport manages to keep my iPhone on Wifi with 2 bars. Problem solved.

    Really fast! Almost flawless install too!

    • Written by from OLMSTED TOWNSHIP

    OK, the problems first. I had a hard time installing this. Turns out I didn't follow the directions telling me to leave my cable modem unpowered for several minutes (I only powered it down for a minute max). IF I had followed the directions correctly, I would have had this up and running in like 5 minutes. It was THAT easy to install.

    Now, it's running great and I am getting fantastic response on all my wireless devices throughout the home, with much better speeds than my older Linksys unit. In short, expensive but worth it in terms of performance and ease-of-set-up.

    APPLE ROCKS!!!

    So much better than the Comcast Modem/Router

    • Written by from WEST PALM BEACH

    I recently bought the Airport Extreme. At the same time, after so many disappointments from Comcast, I switched to AT&T (praying that 6mb download times would not be horrible). Amazing...

    The difference between the "Up to 50mb" Comcast router and the "Up to 6MB" AT&T modem was my fear. With the Airport Extreme on board, it made the difference so slight, it's almost not noticeable. Further...

    When I used to open my Mac, sometimes it would connect to the Internet and sometimes I had to turn off the wi-fi and turn it back on again in order to get on the Internet. Now, I think it's on before the screen is vertical. And, I no longer have any streaming problems. How nice not to have to count the days before U-verse is available.

    Always Can Count on Apple

    • Written by from Warren

    I picked one of these up to extend the range of my time capsule.
    My connection went from 1 to full bars on my iPad Mini wi-fi connection and speed test went from 1 or 2 MB per second to 30MB per second.
    Best investment I have made in a while.

    Unreal Range...if you need it

    • Written by from Champlin

    I live in a 3500 sq. foot town home with metal studs. My internet comes into the walkout basement area. Wireless range has been an issues since we moved in. I had a Netgear N900 WNDR4500 router and it blew out when they had an ISP issue. I compared this to the top of the line ASUS and Netgear AC class routers. the others have a bit more ports and ability to customize, but this thing blows them away for range. With the others I was still having issues getting a signal on the top floor. The ASUS would cut in and out and the 2 Netgear routers would do 1-2 bars and still drop occasionally. This thing gives me full bars upstairs. Heck I can get 3 bars at the end of the block. The hardest part about it was figuring out where to download the PC utility. My company IPad sill not be here for several more weeks. There are no PC instructions in the box, I I knew there was a utility somewhere. I found it easier with a Google search than looking on Apple's site. The connection is quick and flawless, the signal is unwavering and the wireless throughput is stellar on the G/N and one AC device I have tested so far. I highly recommend this unit.

    Works very well. Before upgrading from my old Linksys router I couldn't get wifi in my basement and this allowed very fast wifi downstairs. Would recommend to friends!

    Radically better than the rest!

    • Written by from Rochester

    I had a Cisco wireless router and, after a year and a half, was having problem after problem. We went out and picked this up and o'ila! All problems solved. The speed is radically faster than the old 'n' Cisco and the distance the wireless travels is incredible!

    To top all of that I plugged it in, went to Accessories -> Utilities -> Airport Utility on my iMac and had it set up in less than two minutes. Do yourself a favor and choose Apple products!

    BUY THIS ROUTER, IT'S FAST, FAST, FAST,

    • Written by from Rehoboth Beach

    I had a very new wireless router than was NOT inexpensive, and had lousy coverage, slow speed, and areas of my house where I could hardly get any signal. This router is absolutely a dream come true. You set it up with a simple app on your iPhone or iPad.....as easy as pie. It works PERFECTLY, and EVERYWHERE. All I have to say is, Apple products are not inexpensive, but you get what you pay for. They work like no other on the market! And on top of all that, it's beautiful looking too!

    Exceeds expectations!

    • Written by from Savoy

    I replaced a pretty good Linksys router with a new Airport Extreme and the enhanced performance is remarkable. I was waiting to purchase the Airport because I thought the enhanced performance would be mainly available when I began to use wireless ac devices. Based upon reviews I read here, I became convinced that wifi performance would be better even with wireless g and n devices. Well, the reviews were right! . My wireless download speeds increased by almost 75%, from 25 mbps to 44 mbps, without any change to my ISP service. (My wired desktop computers achieve download speeds consistently at 55 mbps via Comcast.)
    I can only speculate about how much better it might get when I begin to use wireless ac devices; maybe equal to wired?
    Don't worry about the premium price you pay for this Apple product. Get one now.

    One Word: Incredible

    • Written by from Chicago

    Best router I have ever owned. I replaced (1) 5th Generation Extreme and (2) network extenders with this one router. The distance coverage and signal strength is the best that Apple have ever produced. This product is worth $400. Purchase!
