Compatibility

AirPort Extreme works seamlessly and wirelessly with all your Wi-Fi devices. In fact, it’s an incredibly easy way for up to 50 users to share a single broadband Internet connection, USB printer and external hard drive without messy cables.

More than the web.

AirPort Extreme connects people to each other as well. You can wirelessly share photos, films and other files without having to worry about slow data transmissions. Nor do you have to concern yourself with a difficult network setup. AirPort Extreme uses the Bonjour technology in OS X to allow AirPort-equipped Mac computers running OS X to find each other with no effort on your part — they discover each other just by virtue of being connected to the network.

 

More than computers.

Computers are only part of the wireless story. If you’re an Apple TV owner, you can easily integrate it into your AirPort Extreme network and enjoy the fastest possible connection for streaming your iTunes library to your widescreen TV. And if you use an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, it will connect to your AirPort Extreme network to let you surf the web and more. iPhone and iPad models with Wi-Fi + Cellular automatically switch from the mobile data network to your Wi-Fi network as soon as you walk in your front door.

Mac and PC friendly.

AirPort Extreme works effortlessly with any computer that uses Wi-Fi standards, whether it’s a Mac, or a Dell, HP, IBM or any other Windows-based PC. That’s because AirPort Extreme is based on the 802.11n specification and is compatible with the earlier 802.11a, 802.11b and 802.11g specifications.

Mac + PC

Gigabit Ethernet.

In addition to Wi-Fi networking, the AirPort Extreme Base Station includes three Gigabit Ethernet ports for fast wired connectivity with desktop computers, network drives and more.
