    AWESOME! Best yet!!!

    This is the best wireless yet from Apple. Very glad they finally offer AC. It looks much larger in the pictures then it really is. Thanks Apple!

    Great Performance

    Before I bought this product, I was using the Time Capsule as my router. In the 4-5 hours that I have been using this, I have seen a great increase in speed and performance on my Retina MBP, iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, and iPad mini. So far this is a great router. It was easy to set up out of the box, and the new design has also increased my WiFi distance.

    Pros: Lightweight, easy to set up, huge increase in performance and speed.

    Cons: Cost.


    Although the cost is higher, you will see much better performance out of this than many other non apple routers. Well worth the $200.00

    Great router

    I just bought the router an hour ago and I am really satisfied. Streaming videos on 4 different PCs and speed hasn't been affected! Also, range is excellent.

    Great buy!

    ABSOLUTE BEST HUB FAST AND POWERFUL

    MY LAST AIR PORT EXTREME LASTED 10 YEARS BEFORE I REPLACED IT, NEVER A PROBLEM OR A HICK UP. WE HAVE THREE APPLE TV'S 4 COMPUTERS 5 IPHONES AND 2 IPADS, TWO PRINTERS AND 5 KINDLES IN USE AND NEVER A BURP OR A HICK-UP, SET UP WAS A SNAP, CHARTER COULD LEARN A THING OR THREE ABOUT NETWORK GEAR FROM APPLE, WE HAVE GONE THROUGH 4 OR FIVE ROUTERS FROM CHARTER AND THE AIR PORT KICKS DUPPA, CHARTER STILL ISNT AS GOOD AS THIS UNIT IS. NOW I JUST NEED TO GET SOMEONE IN THE FAMILY TO GET ME A NEW IMAC, 10 YEARS WITHOUT A PROBLEM IS HARD TO BEAT, YES THEY COST MORE BUT YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR.

    3x faster download speeds compared to Airport Express....

    I had an an old Airport Express that I purchased about 6 years ago. It was working normally, however, I noticed that my webpages were taking longer to load and the streaming video from my Apple TV were sputtering and buffering. I wasn't sure what kind of improvement I could expect by upgrading to an Airport Extreme, but in one word: BLAZING FAST! My download speeds are now almost tripled. Shortly after setting up the system, I had to run the speed test several times just to make sure it was really true. My webpages on my Macbook Pro and iPhone load almost instantaneously. Streaming video from my Apple TV is now sputter free....

    Setup was ridiculously easy using the Airport setup utility. I timed it: I plugged it in at 5.46pm and by 5.57pm I was enjoying super fast speeds. Highly recommended. All my settings from my old Airport Express were seamlessly transferred to my new Airport Extreme.

    It would be a shame if Apple discontinued manufacturing these routers because there is no comparable product that offers such a painless and pleasurable user experience.

    2nd AirPort that sucked

    Sadly this is my 2nd Airport extreme and I had the older version too. Sadly they look nice! but your better of with a NetGear for 50$$. Issues I had the HD crashed on my order model. The new Airport Extreme the single drops. this is the replacement I'm having issues with. But now I don't have warranty.

    IT. JUST. WORKS.

    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.

    Fantastic Airport Extreme.

    Over the past 6 months I have had continual issues with our BT HH5, especially with Apple products, BT replaced our router 3 times with the same issues, i have spent hours adjusting settings on the HH5 but the same issues came back, dropping out 6-8 times a day. BT's technical department are useless, never returning calls or actually sorting the issue.

    However i decided to purchase the Airport Extreme over other routers that are available with similar specs.

    If you are an Apple household, Macbook pro's, iPhones iPads etc and are having issues with your ISP's standard router, don't waste anytime and just get the Airport Extreme!! It is expensive however i believe you get what you pay for. Set up is so simple, had everything up and running in 10 mins, It just works.... After setup i did a speed check and it has doubled our speed to 68mbps download and 22mbps upload, we have a lot of items online at the same time and it doesn't slow down at all. It also looks fantastic! Thank you Apple I'm completely satisfied and relieved that the children are not continually complaining!!

    Amazing

    I have been messing about with wifi and trying to setup repeaters in my house with no success. Bought 2 AirPort Extremes - plugged one in - 5 mins later working, plugged the second one it, 2 minutes later its a repeater and wifi sorted - and blindingly fast. Now multiple AppleTVs working fine, phones, laptops etc. all around the house..

    Please keep making this great router!

    Sad to hear rumors that Apple will not making the Airport Extreme in the near future. After I heard this, I bought this latest version, and I have been very happy with the easy setup and extremely fast transfer speeds. I have been very happy with the reliability of my previous Extremes. I am getting 240 Mbps download speeds with Xfinity Blast Pro, and the range is much better than my previous router. Buy this router before they stop making them!

    A big improvement for my home WiFi.

    I purchased this Apple AirPort Extreme as my current internet router WiFi had a few black spots in my house and was not really that good. This has 100% improved my home WiFi and made using all my Apple and iOS devices so much quicker on my home broadband.

    Good Points:

    - Very easy to set up and install.
    - Easy to set up with either my iOS device or Mac.
    - Has improved and increased my range of WiFi within my house and outside in the garden.
    - I like the fact that I can choose my one WiFi password and name of the AirPort Extreme.
    - The design of the AirPort Extreme is well designed and looks great in my house. The fact that it only has one light on it keeps the overview of the design very clean and simple.


    Bad Points:

    - When using the iOS app, to enter the settings page you have to enter a password, there was nothing that I could find that said that the password was the password used to get on the WiFi network. When I contacted my local Apple Store and Apple Care neither could tell me which password was required to enter the settings page on the iOS app.

    - The functionality of the AirPort Extreme is very basic but it does have some good extra features but the instructions that you get with it or what you can find out online don't really tell you how to use them.

    - It says online that when you go in to the settings of the AirPort Extreme you can see which devices are online with the router, you can see this but it only shows the IP address of that device not the name of the device, even my old free router from my IP provider showed me the name of each device online.


    Overall, if your looking to improve your home WiFi and get better range in your house and have more devices online at once then this AirPort Extreme could be the device for you. Its basic in features but makes up for it in other areas. Well worth the money and having a house full of wireless devices including several Apple devices this AirPort Extreme fits in perfectly with everything.

    So FAST!!!

    my old medialink was newer than the AirPort Extreme when I bought it. I finally started the transition to all apple about a year ago and the router is one of the last pieces to get swapped out. I had no idea how much faster, more stable and reliable a router could be! Using the same cable modem and ISP, my AirPort Extreme is 4 times faster than my medialink was. If I would have just spent the money then, I would have had a router that is still state of the art 2 years later instead of owning this medialink paperweight. Penny Wise Pound Foolish - spend the money now and own a router that'll hold up over time!!

    Incompatible with Surfboard Modems

    After several hours and calls to Comcast I'm done with this router. Won't connect with modem and when it does its intermittent connection and won't work with other devices. I'm a big fan of Apple products but this one is a piece of junk.

    Fabulous! It does exactly Apple claim

    Easy to install
    Blisteringly fast wifi.
    I test my wifi speed a couple of times a week.
    Download has increased from 15- 20 Mbps average to +/- 55Mbps.
    I pay my Internet provider for 50mbps.
    It is truly amazing

    Worth every cent!

    I have a Verizon router that was not doing the job. The Airport extreme is more than adequate. I've been on my Mac while my wife was also on hers & both of my daughters were using their iPads & AppleTV was streaming music without any problems. Totally worth the money.
