    Extending network

    • Written by from Orton

    While our house is not that big, the primary Airport Extreme signal was intermitant at the other end and up stairs. The signal was not consistant because of a 24" stone wall in the middle of the house.
    Got a second Extreme since I figured it would be most compatible and easier to hook up.
    Very good idea.....to get the network set up and the two talking......took less than a minute.......max strength signal now upstairs!!

    Best Router I've used

    • Written by from Austin

    I own quite a few Apple products so far (Apple TV, MacBooks, iMac, IPhones) and this is one of the best apple products. I was having trouble with my modem and router from Time Warner. It kept disconnecting ever time my iMac went to sleep and would disconnect from my Apple TV. I finally bought this and a different modem. The set up was easy, less than 5 minutes. My computer hasn't disconnected and it's been faster than ever. Worth the investment!

    Great buy

    • Written by from JACKSON HEIGHTS

    I upgraded my old Airport Extreme to Apple Time Capsule that didn't work, so I bought the new Airport Extreme which was wonderful but decided to get back to Time Capsule and give it another try and it worked beautifully. They are essentially the same product, the difference is of course the wireless HDD on the time capsule. Both work very well as routers, very fast and reliable. True, they have a history of trouble but I hope Apple has worked out the glitches. Very satisfied.

    Easiest most awesomely fast network ever!

    • Written by from Prairie Village

    I bought the Airport Extreme today after my old (not apple) router keeled over. In five minutes, I plugged my cable modem, printer, and one wired computer in, plugged in the extreme, it walked me through setup, and in 2 minutes flat I was up and running on all 10 devices in the house. My speed is topping out at 60mps download, only because my older cable modem is limiting me. Time for a new modem!

    Being in IT, I know the hardest thing still even in the middle of all our wonderful tech options is the communications/networking piece. Usually, after turning the air blue and working for hours, I can finally bring up a network. Well, as usual, Apple streamlined everything, put it in a pretty package, and made it simple simple simple. I can't say enough good things!

    If you are hesitating because it seems hard to set up a network, go straight to apple for this little beauty. Merci beaucoup Apple!

    ps I am in no way affiliated with Apple. Just a very satisfied multiple times customer

    Fantastic Product

    • Written by from Payson

    I had been renting a NetGear router/modem combo from Comcast for the last few years and it was seriously struggling to reach all the corners of my house. I had to use my phone's 4G network in my room because it was so weak. On top of that, airplay was problematic with my apple tv's and I would need to reset my whole system almost every week. I bought this product, plugged it in to the wall, connected it to the modem with an ethernet cable, set it up in about 2 minutes, and all of my wifi problems were SOLVED! My internet speeds are literally three times faster and I the range has extended from about 30 feet to easily over 60 feet. Airplay always works perfectly now and I haven't had to reset my media server or anything in several weeks. I am so incredibly happy with this product.

    By Far The Best!

    • Written by from Somers

    I live in a house with a very long floor plan. I have struggled for years paying for the latest and greatest routers to cover entire home with no luck or at best intermittent coverage. After I bought apple TV I decided to open up the wallet and get one of these AirPort Extremes. I am glad I did! Simple to install if you follow the directions... Once up and running I have EXCELLENT wireless connection throughout the entire house! Highly recommend this product.

    Immediate imrpvement to Wifi in our house

    • Written by from East Molesey

    Absolute gem! Immediate improvement to speeds throughout the house from the Virgin Media Super Hub we have been using for a few years. Switched the super hub into modem mode and had this up and running in 5 mins. Really, really pleased with the results!

    Easy setup and it just works!

    • Written by from TRUGANINA

    Got it from the Highpoint Apple Store (Melbourne, Australia) this morning. I'm on FTTH NBN service with Belong (Telstra) and the setup took less than 5 minutes! Couldn't get any easier than that. My only wish is for Apple to release a version with 4th Ethernet port and USB 3.0 port - but I can live with this for now. :)

    Best router ever...

    • Written by from Chicago

    Similar to many this router is the best I have ever used. Very easy to set-up (about 5 minutes). Internet with this router is 25x faster than our old router! Definitely recommend to anyone looking for a great router, definitely worth the money.

    We bought an Airport 5 years ago and it worked flawlessly for five years. Now time to upgrade for more power in a big house with solid walls, and the upgrade took exactly 30 seconds. For those who can't figure out how to do it, just select it from the Airport Utility under Other Wifi Devices. Once installed the boost in speed is huge. Congratulations Apple another amazing device and now I look forward to another 5 trouble-free years.

    What's all the fuss !!??

    • Written by from Church Hill

    There's pros and cons to everything in life, period. Ordered my Extreme on 8/5/15 and was on my doorstep 8/7/15. Opened the box, plugged in power and signal, followed the setup on my Mac (2011 OS X 10.7.5), and was surfing in 5 min. Have Charter internet, self tested at 59.11 Mbps. Hope this helps in your decision.

    Amazing Wireless Router

    • Written by from Marietta

    I rarely write reviews but I just had to write a review for the Airport Extreme. I've had so many different brands of wireless routers (Asus, Linksys, D-Link, Netgear, etc) and they all begin to fail around the 9 month time frame. On many of them I was resetting them once or twice a week by the time they'd reached a year. I've now had my Airport Extreme over a year and a half and I've only ever reset it once (outside of a couple power-outages). This device is incredible, even without any AC devices connected to it. I usually have 10-15 devices connected at a time and never once experienced bad performance/signal. Always keeps up with everything going on and gives me the full 60mbps I pay for from Comcast, even wirelessly. Never going back to any of those cheap brands again! Apple delivers again!

    I have recently purchased an Airport Extreme. I live in a medium sized brick and tile house and have often experienced extensive buffering whilst steaming HD movies over the Wi-Fi. I was initially apprehensive largely due the initial cost outlay but I now regret not buying one much earlier. It has made such big improvement to the home Wi-Fi speed particularly when streaming movies via LeLe and apple TVs. The modem/router I'm using is a Netgear DGN2000. I had always thought that the 802.11n Wi-Fi performance was OK but using the extreme just blows it away. The extreme is positioned a good 30 feet away (in a separate room with brick walls and corridor/doorway) from the apple TV but the performance increase is truly remarkable. I would definitely recommend the investment if you are considering upgrading your Wi-Fi performance. There is also a new 2015 MacBook pro in the house and the 802.11ac connection is very strong and fast. The set up was also very easy (5 mins). The Netgear DGN2000 is now just acting as modem feeding into the Airport Extreme. I'm very happy with the purchase. Regards

    Best Router Ever!

    • Written by from Atascadero

    We have a fairly large house, and our Wi-Fi signal was spotty with an old netgear router. We have a game room upstairs which used to get no signal at all. We purchased a Apple Airport Extreme and an Apple Airport Express, expecting to put the Express in that room to give it signal. We did in fact not need the express, and it is sitting plugged into that room upstairs, giving us even better signal. Amazing Router, recommend for people with big houses.

    Greatest Router...

    • Written by from CORAL SPRINGS

    I have been trouble shooting my slow internet (AT&T UVERSE) wireless for almost two months now. They switched out the model/router combo twice, added a wifi booster, and still nothing. Until one AT&T technician told me about the AIRPORT EXTREME - Possibly The Greatest Router I have ever purchased. Apparently AT&T can not guarantee their wifi signals strength to customers using APPLE PRODUCTS...So if you are experiencing SLOW WIFI while using APPLE products, do yourself a favor and purchase an Airport. I went with the Extreme because I did not want to have this problem in the future... With super fast shipping from the Apple Store, easy installation and setup, my wifi sign is like no other. It is TEN times stronger and has a great range (in my back yard ~ 130ft away). Best Router EVER...

    Awesome product - solved all my network problems!

    • Written by from Ruislip

    Apple, I salute you! I used to have a Virgin Media Super Hub-2, which is the most god-awful piece of hardware that has even been designed. My internet used to drop 3-4 times a day, and each time I would have to manually reset the Virgin Media Hub. I read some blogs and saw people were recommending to put the Virgin Media Hub in to modem only mode, and then buy an Apple AirPort Extreme to do the clever stuff.

    I can tell you, the results have been transformative! Since install, I've not had a single Internet drop (installed 2 months ago), my speeds have doubled (I have 150 Mbps, but only used get around 70 Mbps) and coverage has improved throughout the house. I highly recommend this product - worth every penny and then some.

    Thank you, Apple!

    Works like a champ!

    • Written by from Brick

    I bought one of these in addition to having a Comcast modem/router. The Comcast router was ALWAYS dropping the connection and my MacBook and iPad wouldn't stay connected. I was constantly having to use my iPhone as a hotspot for my MacBook and iPad. Since I've set up the Airport Extreme, life has been wonderful. The range is much better and I haven't dropped the connection once. Also, the set up literally made me laugh out loud because it could not be any easier. It was so fast and simple. And it was just as simple to get my wireless printer to link up with the Airport Extreme. Just a note, the router does not include a CAT5 cable. If you have a bigger house, look into getting more than one of these routers to give yourself complete coverage.

    I was blown away by how easy it was to setup! You simply plug in your ethernet and power cables, launch AirPort Utility, choose a name and password for your network and you're done!

    I had many connectivity issues with my Bose SoundTouch 20, but with the AirPort Extreme, things are working flawlessly.
