    It Just Works

    As the famous saying goes this device just works. I had constant drop outs with my previous router and my speeds weren't anywhere near what I was paying for (75mbps). I've had this since December 2014 and I could probably count the drop outs on a single hand if that. The speed is consistently fast as well. The best compliment I can give this device is that I rarely even have to think about it.

    Awesome Router. My Xbox live does not drop out anymore!

    I had recently upgraded my ISP plan with OPTUS and was provided a Netgear CG3000v2 modem router. That free issue router was fine for general surfing etc, but had caused massive amounts of Xbox drop outs where online gaming such as World of Tanks was I near impossible.
    I decided to get an AirPort Extreme and change that useless CG3000v2 into bridge mode. As I already have iMac and iPads iPhones and iPods between family members the setup was a breeze using the iMac. I also had an Aiport express lying around and now using it as a wifi extender. Absolute brilliant network. All family members have noticed a huge increase in network speeds for file transfers within the home and surfing.
    Apparently there are plenty of people saying the CG3000v2 supplied by the ISP OPTUS is a very restricted one when it comes to IP forwarding etc. Save yourselves the headache dealing with CG3000v2 issues change it to bridge mode and get one of these Airport Extremes!! We are loving it.

    Airport Extreme: extremely pleased

    Replaced an old Airport Express 1264a with a new Extreme. From box opening to set-up and running in less than 5 minutes. Airport Utility made it easy. Used the same ID and password as old express and all my devices were still connected after replacement. Strong signal in residential home. WiFi test showed it was a bit better than old router. Main reason for buying a new router was to have additional ethernet ports. I wish the rest of life was as easy to set-up.

    Excellent

    Used to replace our Infinity Home Hub 3 so the BT modem now connects to the WAN port on this instead. Great result, no more loss of network that was dropping several times a day, and no more spending hours on the phone to BT in India trying to resolve the issue.

    it really doesn't get any easier than this

    I have struggled over the past year with my old wireless router, I had a friend tell me about the Apple airport extreme after purchasing it, I was slightly reluctant to believe how easy it was everyone was saying, it literally took me longer to get it out of the package then it did for me to connect it. Signal strength is awesome everywhere on my property and the speed is too! But the best thing is now, my Apple TV works like it should!!!! five stars!!!!!

    The Gold Standard

    Simply the best managed 4 port wireless switch out there. I know it's expensive, but even Windows users should consider this. The range is simply unmatched by anything else. Three of these will cover the upstairs AND downstairs of a house with Faraday walls. Can't recommend it enough.

    Fixed all problems with BT Home Hub 5

    Like many others here I bought this to replace a BT HomeHub that was performing terribly and would drop wireless to the Apple TV if someone even just looked at their phone.

    Set up was done in about 5 minutes. Just plug the WAN of the Airport into one of the LAN ports on the Home Hub (you will need a CAT 5 ethernet cable, not included). Open wifi settings on your iPhone and there will be an option to set it up from there. No admin login or BT username / password required.

    Every device on the network now performs perfectly with no loss of signal or random moments of slow download speeds. Inc: iPhone 6, iPhone 4S, iPad Air, Sony Vaio Windows 7, MacBook Pro, some crummy Android phone (not mine I swear!), an Apple TV and a Sony PS4. All connected at once sometimes and nothing goes wrong.

    Yes it's expensive, but it's well worth it. Stop looking at it and wondering wether to buy it or not and just get one.

    New airport

    So far I've been using this product for two days and I went to print some things and I have an old Canon PIXMA IP 4000R and that of course is a wireless printer but old-school. And I had to change wireless networks at home to print to it because my older fifth-generation AirPort Extreme would not connect to it but this one does and finally realizing that after minute or so that I was printing without changing wireless networks I was all excited. I'm going to give my old wireless AirPort Extreme to my daughter. It's a different looking design having a little mini tower instead of a flat pancake like device. It's so fast!

    Apple Airport Extreme

    Actually although I only have N devices, I recently bought from Apple, the new iPad Air 2 9X7" (in Gold) and this runs on AC Wi-Fi, a fact that Apple doesn't make clear to British Users - so now you have no excuses to get up to 465mbps on Apple's Airport Extreme!

    Awesome Router!!

    I was previously a diehard NetGear router fan. After three High end very expensive NetGear routers failed on me... A friend of mine has had the 5th and now 6th Generation routers. He swore by them. So I decided to give the Airport Extreme a chance! Very happy with the speeds and range of signal I receive in our 1,600 square ft townhouse. Every floor and inch has great signal! Apple, you've done it again! Very pleased!

    Love it! No more connection issues!

    I have always used the modem/router provided by telcos. It would work for 6months and then connection would start dropping out, become slow etc..

    Airport Extreme as solved all of my connection issues!

    Fantastic line of routers.

    I had the last gen version of the Airport Extreme (the Mac Mini shaped one) and loved it. It recently stopped functioning--I believe because of a recent brown out in our house--and I decided to replace it with this new model. Color me impressed. My old one did a really great job giving us a good solid wireless N signal two floors away, but this one is even faster and more solid.

    Speaking generally though--these are the most solid routers I've ever owned. They never need to be restarted and they last forever. I highly recommend them. Power users or network admins may not find them to be the most versatile as far as options, but for the standard user, they're amazing.

    Airport Estreem

    I love this product. This is the 2nd Airport Extreem I bought for myself. When my daughter's old Linksys died, I handed her down my old Airpoort Extreem "hot plate" model which still worked perfect, and I installed the new model Airport Extreem in my new wifi setup. The old Airport Extreem never disappointed. I have had the new "tower" model for almost a year now, and it seems to be a lot more powerful in range and with the amount of devices you can run through it at the same time. I like the feature of automatically switching the the best frequency for the device that is connecting to it. I wouldn't buy anything else. It does what is it suppose to.

    Excellent!

    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.

    Its the best!

    I have a total of 6 apple products, 2 android phone and 2 PC in my home and the Airport Extreme not only directly sync with all my apple products but have no problem connect to Windows base PC & my android phones as well, connected it to my AppleTV and stream at 1080HD without a single problem even though the router is connected to my other 8 devices. I fully recommend this product.

    Solved my problems!

    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!

    Amazing Product from Apple

    Bought this Airport Extreme yesterday and was utterly amazed at just how easy it was to set up. Plugged it into my current VDSL router, where it quickly worked out it should place itself in Bridge mode. Then it asked me some simple questions like Wifi Name and Password and it was that simple.
    So very happy with the purchase. It certainly isn't a cheap device but in my opinion it is worth the money. Still to fully test its wireless range etc, but absolutely no complaints so far.

    Love this wireless device!

    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!
