    Works with Uverse

    I purchased the new AE to expand my wireless area in my house and allow for greater flexibility of device locations. I have a PC with Win 7 64 and my internet comes by way of AT&T Uverse. the RG Uverse supplies operates on 802.11g and my PC is wired in. I needed to move my PC to an area where there were no ethernet outlets and at temps of 105 outside, I really did not want to be in my attic running new wires. I also had some dead spots in my master suite. This little unit works like a charm, I had to use my iPad to configure it but there really was not much to it. My only complaint would be that I have no idea how to configure it with a PC. I am writing this review on my PC that is now wireless, and my iPad, iPhones, iPods and Apple TV's are all working perfectly and I can still connect to my set top boxes with my Uverse remote app. At a $100 bucks a pop you really can't beat the ease of connection. I may get one more for my master suite just so I can place my tv where ever I so desire.

    Love Apple

    Walked into the Apple Store with my kids, & got pointed to the Acc's wall. Grabbed the AP Base Station box, about the size of my fist. Walked to one of the 50 associates on the clock. Checked out in 24 seconds. Left.

    Total time of transaction — 2 min's tops (maybe less).

    Got home. Total setup time — 4 min's tops.

    I could have ordered over the Web with free shipping — but I wanted to swing by the store again.

    Why? B/c it's beautiful.

    I. Love. Apple.

    Delightful item

    Set-up was a breeze and the app works as a perfectly good companion. I had the old version for years but since there was wasn't a better option on the marked so far I was waiting for this.

    Small and amazing!

    I live in a large apartment with thick old walls. This baby allows me to have access to wifi in all the rooms. Amazing! It is so easy to setup.

    Only $119 with a 14 days return policy. Why not :-)

    Great product

    Set-up was a breeze. It took about 5 mins. This was a fresh change from the old Dome looking Airport I had from years. I still have it, but the reason for the change was b/c the product kept losing conection to the web. Plus it has out lived its time. The size of the new base station has a very small foot print. Amazing how small this item is. Can't wait to try airplay speakers with it.

    Great product, but it did not do what i needed it to do

    let me say over all this product is great and easy to setup it follows the old version of this product. also my setup for the house is an old netgear wireless router in the back room then attached is the netgear power over ethernet plugs to extend the wired LAN, then across the house is the older gen router attached to the living room ethernet plug, and also one in my bed with older gen attached to the netgear power ethernet plug. each of the older gen are set up as create a network to extend the netgear wireless router which works perfect, (also using the AirPlay to the stereos in each room). the product worked great in setting up the create a network mode but would not allow the guest network to be used since i was only using the connection as a DHCP connection. after doing some research i found out that the connection had to be connected using DCHP and NAT for the guest network to work. but in my case that particular mode was conflicting with the wireless negtear router already using the DCHP and NAT connection, which overall was connflicting with the new apple express base station.

    so overall i would suggest that the router be used as the main router to get the guest network to work and use the LAN port, to attach a good switch to add extra LAN connections, unless all of your devices are using a WLAN connection. this product world be best in a small house, dorm, appartment.

    Everything I had hoped for

    I bought the new Airport Express so I could move our old one from the porch into the garage (for AirPlay). Setup from my iPad took 3 minutes. The signal is now strong enough to stream Pandora and Netflix outside and AirPlay works without a hitch. I like the new form factor better - it's much easier to change the connections and hit the reset button without accidentally unplugging it.

    Traveling with the old Express was great, and this one should be just as easy. I always bring an ethernet cable with when I travel, so bringing the power cable along too isn't an issue. Replacement power cables are also cheap, - I'll probably just buy an extra to keep in my backpack so I can just unplug the Express and head out the door.

    Powerful extender

    I have a spread-out house and had trouble getting Wi-Fi signal in the room farthest from the Extreme router, despite using several Expresses as extenders. I was giving up hope, then tried this new Express as the extender farthest from the router. It has changed my life – even though the intermediate extenders are old Expresses, the signal in the back room is incredibly strong due to the new Express. I will say, set up was not working well with the iPad — I had to use my Mac. But that worked fine, and now I'm one happy camper. The best $99 I can recall spending.

    Additional Port

    This is a great little box. The old audio out (Digital Optical or Analogue) and USB from the previous box are still there - thats pretty good for less than 80 pounds
    THEN Apple add a LAN port too! - even more network extension options.
    Improvements to the Airport utility have made set up really easy.
    This is one of Apple's gems

    Solved my problems

    Had two other brand routers and had lots of wireless printing and airplay problems. Set this up in 2 minutes with my iphone and printing and airplay have not been a problem at all. Awesome! Finally a wireless router that actually works and is super easy to set up.

    Why not a modem router?!!!

    I love the device from the moment I saw it in your keynote, but why apple, why not making a modem router after so long???!!!!
    I even order it by mistake and I realized, I was so much in luv with this device I even didn't pay attention to this important factor!
    Anyway to some people like me having a separate modem & router its just not a case!
    I give 1 star to get your attention apple, but as you may know all your devices with all limitation they have are all the way 5 stars!!!

    Unbelievable as an extender of a wifi network over enet (wireless roaming)

    Flat out solid.

    The airport utility does not do a good job with a setup to bridge a wireless roaming network and I had to call support but after some simple steps it was all up and going. Now I have no dead spots and complete transparency as far as iPhones and whatnot care.

    Simple and fast

    What an Apple product should be. Plug and play. Sleek design.

  • 5.0 out of 5 stars

    Does what it says on the tin.

    Plug it in opened up Airport utility on iPhone & it connected to Time capsule no problem.It takes longer to get out of the packaging than set up.

    Pricey

    I'd say this is the biggest waste of money ever it costs 100 bucks and worth 10. It gives ya very weak wifi signal.

    Great Router - Horrible Config Tool

    Just picked up the new express .. great router .. too bad the new airport config 6.1 software is a pile of garbage. I think I know where the engineers that did Ping ended up .. bring back the v5x version and dump 6.

    Even my wife could set it up!

    That sounds terribly sexist but my wife is a technophobe and still manage to set this up to extend a neighbours wifi (with permission!) into her father's house while she was looking after it while he was in hospital.
    Now, instead of having to sit in one particular room, she has wifi throughout the house.
    Great product. I use a last gen. one for travelling (for the rare occasions hotels don't have wireless.
