    Not happy with this product at all

    Let me start by saying that I am fully integrated into the APPLE ecosystem. I have a iPhone, iPad, and a MacBook Pro. With that being said here is my review of the AirPort Express. I purchased this with the thought it would work as advertised and it doesn't. What's sad is this is the second time I've been duped by the AirPort Express. I bought the first one that didn't work as advertised, then I purchased this one and it's just as terrible. It doesn't boost the signal and my bluetooth speakers only work if I hard wire them into the box. It does set-up quickly, and that's about it.

    Doesn't work wirelessly with VERIZON

    After three hours of trying everything I stumbled upon a Verizon forum for DSL connections dslreports (dotcom) /faq/12506
    The short answer is that the router that Verizon uses (Actiontec), will not work wirelessly with the Airport Express. You have to hardwire the secondary router.
    Back to the store it went and I spent the time wiring instead.
    I gave 1 star for lack of literature on this on the part of Apple.

    Gadgets cannot connect right away & signal is lost most of the time

    The first generation airport express was really a performer. So after 3 years of being impressed by its performance, I decided to get this new airport express a few months ago. I was disappointed. My gadgets (iphone, mac, belkin switches, ipads, smart tv) can't connect to the new express right away. I have to search the wifi signal and type in the codes again. Very disappointing product!

    No connect to Yamaha Disklavier via wireless bridge to Airport Extreme

    I have spent several days trying to configure this jewel-like piece of junk. Running Lion 10.7.5 and Mountain Lion 10.8.3, Airport Utility 6.x (AU6.x) auto configure does not enable detection of piano using Yamaha's iPhone Disklavier App. Apple Airport 6.x has no manual configuration capability. For that you need a nonstandard install of Airport Utility 5.6 or 5.6.1 (depending on your Mac OS X version). Infuriating!

    Shockingly Bad

    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.

    Same old wifi problem

    I am starting to loose my patients with apple hardware and the constant dropping out from my wifi network. In the house we have an imac running off mountain lion, 3 iPhones, 2 iPads, 2 apple TVs (1x2nd gen 1x3rd gen) and I recently purchased an airport express. I have always had issues with my iMac dropping off the network which as you can imagine creates a problem with ATV and airplayit and servetome running on iPhones and iPads. Actually the iPhones and iPads seem to be the only devices that stay connected to the network. I have spent hours reading on forums about how to resolve the issue and have now become quite knowledged on router setting ip addresses,static ip addresses, ports etc, I am now in a situation where I have accepted that my iMac will not stay connected to the network through wifi and have fed a cable through the house to plug iMac straight into router however that doesn't doesn't stop airport express dropping off network. I have tried different routers with different settings and different networking options after hours of researching online. Apple products clearly have wifi issues that apple needed to sort out but they don't seem to care. Before you purchase ATV or AIrport express or if you are going to purchase an iMac that is going to need to use wifi, enter ' wifi problems with apple' into a search engine and just see the thousands of people with similar problems to myself. Sort it out Apple. Your hardware and software is great just sort the wifi issues out so everything just works without needing a degree in wifi networking. By the way as you can probably tell I decided to write this review after just realising my airport express had dropped off network again.

    Very Bad

    Says it can connect with 50 devices without slowing down. My family barely has 10 connected to it and the connections are terrible and speeds are 10x slower than my previous router.

    Airport Express is not reliable

    I would not recommend to buy this AirPort Express Base Station!! This is a second that I've purchased two months ego and I hoped it would work since the previous model worked only for 4 month. But, no it didn't. It starts loosing connection at first and then after several 'reset' it won't connect at all. Don't waste money.

    Does not work with ALL ISPs

    Thought I'd be smart and replace my trusty Linksys with an Apple product as almost all my computer stuff is Apple. Was I disappointed. The setup was this was frustrating. I thought it was the cable outlet. So the cable guy came and told me that the only was to this that and the other - all way above my skill level. But he couldnt do it for me as it was not his company policy to do this that or the other.
    So back to the store this goes.

    dont buy an airport express if you have an iphone or ipad OS6

    i"ve had two brand new airport expresses in the past three months and they do not work with any apple devices that have OS6 (iphones and ipads). The airport express worked with my iphone before I upgraded to OS6.
    Apple Care - i've been through five technicians over the last three months and many hours of troubleshooting - have not been able to resolve the issue which they say is related to OS 6. They also say I am not the only customer who has this issue. They cant say when or how it will be fixed.

    Don't Bother

    Useless piece of rubbish.

    The first one I got didn't work. Got a replacement and it was worse. Sent the third one back and got a refund. It worked for about 3 days... and then nothing.

    I expected more from Apple. Only gave it one star because I couldn't give it zero.

    Does not work

    I have tried installing 2 of these in the last few days. Both times it will not extend the network connection. I get an error stating "An unexpected error has occurred, please try again". Afterwards the router does not show in the Airport utility window. It only returns after I reset the router by pushing the button.

    I suspected the salesman knew there was a problem for the device. He assumed I wanted to return for a refund, not exchange. My desire to try a second airport seem to caught him off guard. Maybe should have taken his hint and just asked for a refund. I am trying it now and will likely return it in the morning.

    Now, how do I get my older version back from my cousin??

    Returned the first day

    I bough this hoping to extend my Wi-Fi, but sadly it failed. It never connected to my router in the first place, I rested it and restored it to factory default 3 times. I tried a lot of times and it never connected. Very disappointing with this product. I looked at the booklet in side and look at my router. The router was perfectly capable but every time my iPhone said "An unexpected error has accored, please try again"

    Dont buy

    This is the worst apple product I have ever bought. I had netgear wifi before which worked fine but my daughter needed wifi, so I gave her my netgear and thought I would upgrade to this.
    Ipad and {phone all find wifi but can not connect.

    Looking to but the netgear wifi which is easy to use and much cheeper

    Worst Apple product I have ever seen!

    First router I have ever bought, they say it sets right up. Well, after 2 nights of trying EVERYTHING on this planet, reading for a million hours and it just doesn't work! I think I'm going to go out back and use it for target practice! After having a bad iPad experience, and now this, I would have to say I believe Apple is going downhill!

    Not too sure...

    I purchased this solely to extend my wireless range, and it seems like my signal is worse than it was before. My range has been extended by at most a foot, and now my signal drops in and out. Pretty huge waste of money, but to be fair it might just be that I'm an idiot. As I type my wireless has dropped out twice...

    Horrible product

    Simply does not do what promisses. It is useful only to extend the wireless network, nothing else. To share hard drive and printers is terrible. Airtunes does not play the sound, and when it plays cuts the music. I am really disappointed.

    Will not work with third party router.

    I can not believe that I can not use this for airplay, piggy backed (client mode) onto a third party router on my network.

    But that is what they told me at the "genius" (not what I would call the dude) bar. They said I could not use it with a third party router.
    I don't believe that, but I could not get it to work consistently and I can not seem to get any support.
