    It's ok, i'll leave it at that.

    • Written by from PATERSON

    This thing sure isn't what i was hoping for, it a nice router and all but don't count on it giving you anymore range than it's predecessor. I was under the impression that it's big awkward size was due to a improve antenna, it isn't. I can't recommend to anyone to upgrade their old router to this.

    Amazing Print Server Capabilities

    • Written by from Riverton

    The router works amazing as a print server for the small business world. We were able to quickly setup Xerox and Canon printers, which made the process of network printer amazingly simple. Love this machine!

    Awesome router

    • Written by from westfield

    Replaced my piece of &*#% Linksys router with this one. what a difference. I haven't had a device drop a connection since. I'm getting better download and upload speeds. the range has also increased significantly. the only thing I didn't like about it was the fact that it wouldn't recognize my NTFS NAS. I probably should have done a little more research, but that's life. I'd recommend this router to anyone. I also couldn't get a regular printer that didn't have AirPrint on it to work through the router.

    Range not improved from last gen

    • Written by from Lubbock

    I bought this one to replace a last generation model because there were 2 spots in my house (I don't have a big house - average size at best) where coverage was sporadic and unreliable. I thought that the claimed "better range" of this one would help since I just needed maybe 10 more feet to work perfectly. Well, after installing it in the same exact spot, coverage is exactly the same, or at best maybe 5% better, but not enough for me. So, I ended up using the old Extreme as an extender, which works great, but I was planning on selling it... Oh well... Also, I followed the menus to migrate the settings from the old one to the new, and the setup quit at the end with an unknown error, and I had to reset the new Extreme and do it the regular way. Another problem, the new one does not allow you to use the 5ghz channels for the wifi "n" only, which I used on the old one and it helped me segregate wifi between the old ipads and the new ipads/iphones. Not an option anymore.

    Pros: Looks great, easy to set up
    Cons: Settings migration did not not work, range is not better, missing wifi channels options

    BUY THIS ROUTER, IT'S FAST, FAST, FAST,

    • Written by from Rehoboth Beach

    I had a very new wireless router than was NOT inexpensive, and had lousy coverage, slow speed, and areas of my house where I could hardly get any signal. This router is absolutely a dream come true. You set it up with a simple app on your iPhone or iPad.....as easy as pie. It works PERFECTLY, and EVERYWHERE. All I have to say is, Apple products are not inexpensive, but you get what you pay for. They work like no other on the market! And on top of all that, it's beautiful looking too!

    Airport Extreme!

    • Written by from Seminole

    I have recently switched over to Apple from the PC world, to a Mac Mini late 2012 handling all my freelance graphic design needs and invested in this Airport Extreme router. I must say I am highly impressed, as the set up was astoundingly easy and recognized straight away and the speeds/range is almost 10 times what I was getting with my expensive Cisco router that cost around the same price range.

    The fact this is future proofed to wireless AC is a sure bet, you'll be happy you invested.

    Apple AirPort Extreme me918am/a

    • Written by from Kingston

    Super fast and easy set up - even faster performance ! Just moved up from the 5th gen to this newest model . Using late 2011 macbook , with a couple apple tv2 , ipad2 , iphone 5 and iphone 4 . Everything that worked very well previously is moving even faster ! Looking forward to 802.11 Macbook air laptop soon ! Excellent range and power - even working backwards on b/g/n - probably 25-30 percent faster and same in increased range . Happy i made this decision ! Well made and looks great , prefer the aesthetic of this new router over the 5th gen . No longer using 5th gen extreme , and airport express -- the new device puts them both into retirement ! or for sale ! lol

    Incredible speed

    • Written by from Redondo Beach

    I purchased 2 of these puppies to replace my 2 Gen5 Extremes. I upgraded my TWC to 50 Mbps and now I can get 50 Mbps EVERYWHERE in my house when previously I was getting 50Mbps only close to the router and 20 Mbps everywhere else. These puppies are FAST! setup was a charm as it allowed me to automatically copy the configuration of my old extremes, and cleaned up afterwards ready to sell them on amazon.

    I now get 50 Mbps on all my devices, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, 3 iPads, and 2 iPhone 5s, no matter where I am.

    Great Performance

    • Written by from Aurora

    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

    I just installed the new Airport Extreme and couldn't be happier with the results. It has extended my range throughout my house. Far better than the previous version. Apple has done a great job on this product.

    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!

    Awesome router, after issues resolved.

    • Written by from Largo

    This router is very fast and has excellent range, much better than the Bright House Ubee it replaced. Out of the box, however, it did not work, which was quite the surprise and unexpected from an Apple product. After some research, it seems the default is for the device to generate private IP addresses. Changing settings from DHCP to DHCP and NAT, and changing the IP range from 10.xx to 192.xx resulted in flawless performance.

    Fantastic line of routers.

    • Written by from Elgin

    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.

    Excellent!

    • Written by from Lytle Creek

    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.
