Learn more about AirPort Express

  • Easy Wi-Fi setup using iPhone, iPad or Mac.

    Connect your DSL or cable modem to AirPort Express and create your new wireless network in just a few taps from your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Or use the built-in AirPort Utility on your Mac. Setup is just as fast and just as easy.

    Simultaneous dual-band 802.11n.

    AirPort Express lets Wi-Fi-enabled devices connect to your network on the 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless bands. Which means every connected device automatically uses the best band available for the fastest possible performance.

    Stream music with AirPlay.

    AirPlay takes the music from the iTunes library on your computer or iOS device and sends it wirelessly to any connected stereo or speakers in your home (audio cable sold separately). Play music on one set of speakers — or if you have more than one AirPort Express connected to speakers, play your music from iTunes on all of them at the same time.

    Print wirelessly from any room.

    On the back of AirPort Express is a USB port that’s made for your printer. Just plug it in and instantly it’s like having a printer in every room. And since AirPort Express works with Mac and PC, everyone in the house can take advantage of one centrally available printer.

    Compatibility and security.

    AirPort Express is compatible with devices using the 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g and 802.11n specifications. So no matter what Wi-Fi device you’re using, it will work with AirPort Express. AirPort Express also features a built-in firewall to protect your network from malicious Internet attacks. The firewall is automatically turned on, so you don’t have to do a thing.

    Create a guest network.

    Set up a separate Wi-Fi network with a separate password just for your guests. Simply enable the guest networking feature, and your guests can access the Internet but not other parts of your primary network, such as your computers, printers and LAN-attached hard drives.

    Note for prospective purchasers ... make sure you install the Airport Utility App (Free) on your iPad (or iPhone or iPod) then the setup is incredibly easy.

The power cord is very slim lined and as a result maintains portability. Dual Band is a clear advantage, its simple to set up using the airport IOS app and clearly well thought out.

    I had to rate it as five stars to compensate for the reviewer that decided it only warranted one star because it now has a separate power cable rather than just plugging it in to the wall.

    For me, the new format is a major improvement and should give me greater scope in positioning the unit to maximise the signal.

I have tested it at home and it works well in quite a large house so I am looking forward to using this in a much smaller area and less devices. Thank you Apple!

  • Digital output is hopeless

    2.0 out of 5 stars

    Pros: love the new design, it connects seamlessly to my Time Capsule, the analogue output works fine.

    Cons: the digital output Pros: love the new design, it connects seamlessly to my Time Capsule, the analogue output works fine.

    Cons: the digital output is hopeless. I have my AirPort Express connected to an Arcam irDAC via toslink. The dropouts are infuriating. I wish that I had read the Apple forums before my purchase. Search for “Airport Express (square) skips unbearably with Airplay.”

    Really disappointed.

  • Useless piece of junk

    1.0 out of 5 stars

    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, 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.
