    Usted to be good

    I had no problem until I updated, since then it keeps disconnecting itself from my network. I have to reset it at least 2x a day. The worst problem is that I can't find a way to resolve this...I guess I have to throw away two airport express, and I'm not happy about it since they cost a lot of money!

    Unreliable product - do not buy

    I bought an airport express six months and boy do I regret it. The thing keeps disconnecting itself from my network, it's always flashing an amber light. It's truly annoying as each time you want to use it, you need to reset it. All in all, a useless product.

    A joke

    I paid $200 for a router I had heard was going to be reliable but man was I assuming wrong or what? At least once a week, it looses connection with my laptop and I have to mess around for about an hour to figure out why.

    Decline in Apple products; Airport constantly dropping form network.

    I agree with Matty D's review. I have multiple Apple products in my family, (7) MacBooks, (6) iPhones (not including the older generations), (2) Apple tv's, (2) Airport Express, (1) Airport Extreme, and numerous Beats products as well. The Airport Express has to be the worst Apple product I own. Both of my Airports keep dropping from the network, and interrupt music streaming. Anytime I want to stream music via either of my Airports I have to unplug them from the power source, and then plug them back in. Even then, they may only play anywhere form 30 mins up to a full day before they drop from the network, loosing the ability to stream music. I have called Apple support and the gentleman on the phone was very helpful and nice. However, there was not a solution to fix the problem. It is very in-convent to have to stop whatever you are doing to reboot a streaming device. I have Sonos speakers in multiple rooms at our lake-house and the product works impeccably. I am currently looking for another solution to stream music at home.

    AirPort Express is Apple's worst product ever

    I don't know how Apple can get away with producing such a bad product. Try to link two AirPort Express devices and you know why it's such a bad product. I am trying to extend my wifi network with a second AirPort Express in order to stream music wireless. The connection constantly interrupts and this completely destroys my listening experience. I am actively searching for something better. Don't let Apple do your wifi connection! You will be dissappinted.

    Reviews on Airport Express are over rated

    Airport Express arrived today, read instructions on set up, (easier than making a cup of tea). Failed to connect, error message.
    Contacted Apple Support, took nearly two hours to get Airport Express working.

    Contrary to popular reviews, Airport Express does not get rid of the blind Wifi spots. With Time Capsule connected to the Router, my Wifi signal is now much weaker than before. The blind Wifi spots still remain. I would not recommend this product to any friend of mine.

    Save your money

    Drops connection once or twice a day and must be unplugged and restarted. Wish I had read the reviews here before I purchased. I now know that's a common problem with the Express.

    My 5th Generation Extreme works great. Hard to believe the Express is made by the same company.

    Failed product design is very unreliable

    I have had a few of these routers and have found that there are many problems with them.
    First if you use them to stream music say from iTunes you can't also use the internet as the music will stop playing.
    Second these routers will randomly go offline and have to be unplugged and "reset" - very frustrating.
    Third the range is ridiculously short. Do not expect to cover more than one room or you will be disappointed.
    Fourth they often don't even show up in Airport Utility so you can't access the firmware all the time to troubleshoot.
    Fifth they just die randomly and have to be replaced - a couple years lifespan from my experience - they seem to overheat.
    Sixth they have problems maintaining connection to another router if used to expend your wifi range - don't expect to have
    consistent success doing this and absolutely don't expect success using them to wirelessly send music to your speakers -
    this has been a complete failure. Buy a proven router from another manufacturer. They are cheaper and far far superior in operation and reliability. On the plus size they are small.

    Unstable

    Loses its connection constantly. Music playback suddenly clips and stutters, randomly can't be found on my network for airplaying, just disappears with no warning. Has to be reset every 2-4 days. Waste of money. The only product from Apple i regret buying.

    Awful

    If it works it is slow. It hardly works and don't even get coverage in my entire apartment which is only 1200 sq. ft. Waste of money

    Horrible

    Don't buy this product. It worked good at first but after about 5 months it would never even pick up the Internet. It would also drop signal when it was connected every 5 minutes. Go buy a cheaper router from a different brand and save your money it'll most likely work better to begin with.

    Flawed Product, with MANY users experiencing problems

    This is a fantastic, handy product when it works. Trouble is... it often doesn't. Everything will be humming along fine and suddenly the unit will experience connectivity issues. It starts with the music "skipping" while the unit struggles to maintain a connection, then it drops out altogether and the flashing amber light returns while it resets.

    This issue is reporting by thousands of users in forums all over the web.

    Save your money. Don't buy this.

    Upsetting that Apple hasn't acknowledged the issue or offered a solution.

    Lasted 14 months

    I bought this September 9, 2014. It gave up December 2015. It shows strong wifi signal but does not connect. I tried connecting an ethernet cable to it but failed also. Now, I surf the net connected by ethernet cable direct to the modem.

    hate this product

    Airport utility doesn't detect anything. The bridge mode gives me the same amount of signal without bridge mode.

    Useless piece of junk

    Do not buy one of these. The old model was fine, the new one is a completely useless piece of junk. It won't connect to a network, you cannot reset it, it's impossible to configure, and randomly decides what behaviour it might choose to adopt on a given day. As an example, it randomly chooses to connect to and extend my neighbours wifi, even though I have done a 'factory reset' (which achieves nothing) many times. It will not however, connect to my network, extend it, or create a network of its own. Airport utility as a way of configuring it is also completely broken, with a crazy UX design that is just impossible to navigate.

    If you want a worthless white brick with no wireless connectivity, buy Lego. It is cheaper and more fun.

    Terrible, where the light is amber

    This is a terrible product. Having owned two of these, they always end up failing within a year or two. I bought a Netgear, which lasted me 4 years. I am really disappointed, and this is a costly product. I would never recommend this product to anyone. In fact, I think they should have a buyback program for this faulty and weak product. I can't sell my dead airport. I gave the first one a way for someone to hack as a project. Save your money and buy a Netgear for $79. It is much durable.

    Also, this product only has a 1-year product. You can buy it with a laptop, and AppleCare, but who can precisely time when their Wifi modem goes out. This product wasted 45 minutes of my time and Time Warners.

    Worst Apple's product ever - streaming just DOESN'T work

    I can't believe this product has 4 stars. Try to stream music with AirPlay... Every model of this device had issues with frequent music drop out when streaming... and unfortunately I'm the owner of this model...
    More than four years of complains of other users on Apple's forum...

    If you're going to buy it in order to stream music - think twice :-)...

    Airplay is horrible/Router ok

    I bought 2 of these things for a 1500 sqft space and these suckers aren't particle. Network drops out from one end of the space to the other so I have to always walk toward the main one to get stable coverage. Also the Airplay is the only reason I got 2 of them and that feature is horrible, it never works. Maybe works for 1 min then starts dropping out. Apple's quality is really is starting to become like it was back in the 90s. Cool outside box with poor components inside and at the $99 price rage you'd hope for a better product.

    Does not work as advertised

    This was sold as a network extender with a promise in store that it does not matter what type of network you have. This is not true. It would not work with my Cisco network and Apple product support admitted that it does not work with any network other than apple networks (apparently the representatives I spoke to get between 2 and 4 calls a day about this so it is a major problem). I have not tried it with an apple network, but based on previous promises I would not waste my money buying one to find out. Of course in order to find out it doesn't work you have to open the package, so guess what - no refund. Am not impressed with after sales service for this product and since it is our first time needing after sales support it really makes us ponder any further purchases from apple.
