    Does what it says - and well!

    My original airport express gave up the struggle after 8 or 9 years of sterling service. The 2nd gen was a doddle to set up - 10 mins from unboxing to completion. The 2nd ethernet port is very useful as I can now connect it to my modem over the home powerline network and still have a spare port to attach other devices. Couldn't live without Airplay, even being without it for a couple of days was too long!

    Simple to set up, works perfectly

    Happy to recommend. Simple to set up. It has definitely improved the WiFi signal in my first floor room. I use to drive my Naim amplifier from my Macbook Pro. Hard to fault.

    Been using one for about a year...

    Best router I've owned by far. In the year I've been using it haven't had to reset it once. A little disappointed by the lack of wireless AC support and actually bought a non apple $150 AC router to see if it would be worth the upgrade... Long story short I'm back to the express as the primary router for our home and it meets our needs. Internet speeds at around 70mbps in our home although I wish the range was a little better (Get outside of the house and the signal disappears) - if I were to upgrade it would be to the airport extreme, but I couldn't be happier with the reliability. Honestly the main reason why I will not ever buy another brand again after going through several others in the last few years (Linksys, Asus, Netgear) was the rock solid reliability offered by our little Apple router. Zero buyers remorse.

    The best router ever!!!

    Before Airport Express I had a Linksys from Cisco, and it hardly speeded with 20-30 Mbps from 100 Mbps maximum (contractual). With the Airport Express I'm browsing the internet with around 90-95 Mbps which is excellent! Moreover, is small and very easy to configure, which makes it perfect for my living room.

    Great Extender

    I bought this as an extender for my wifi outside. I have a ranch style house and the router is at the opposite of my back patio. Reception there is mediocre. I added the airport express and in less than 2 minutes from connecting with the app, we were up and operating. Everywhere outside is now speedy and hassle free. Don't know how it would work as a primary router, but as an extender it's rock on.

    used flawlessly for years

    I bought my airport express back in 2013 and it has worked flawlessly ever since! it has streamed music to my old hifi, shared printers and now it acts as a guest wifi network. I love it! in fact, I'm tempted to upgrade it for the extreme for the shared hard drive facility (which is all is missing from the express)

    I have 3

    The Airport Utility makes setup trivial. In less than 5 minutes I had a functioning wireless network. I bought two more and extended my network around and outside the house. This is awesome in the summer/spring time when I am sitting in the backyard sipping a cold brew or early morning coffee while reading on my iPad Air.

    very good small wi-fi powerhouse

    very grate router. I got the airport express to replace an old airport time capsule, that started to drop the wi-fi signal, , after 3 years of use, from getting to hot, when backing up data. This, in comparison to the time capsule, cools down very fast when not in use. It's vary small, and sits vary comfortably on my desk. I love the audio airplay feature, i use a logitech subwoofer, and it sounds great. I get 3 of 3 wi-fi bars on my iPhone when i'm outside, and my neighbors really enjoy it. Over all this has been a good upgrade for me, with out having to pay another $100 for the extreme. I originally was going to get the airport extreme, but this was a great deal, for what i need it for. In the future, I may get an airport extreme, but for now, this is great for what i need.

    Best Little Router You Can Buy

    The AirPort Express is the best little router you can buy. I purchased it to replace a combo Netgear ADSL Modem + Router (all in one) because the wireless was giving me quite a bit of trouble despite tweaking settings, changing channels, and so forth. So, I was looking for a small and compact router that offered wireless, but also one that worked well with my Mac products. The AirPort Express does all of that, and it's affordable. I did look at the AirPort Extreme as well, but I was still settled with the small size of the Express.

    So, I've gone back to a separate ADSL Modem and then separate router because the combo ones just don't work well from my experience over the past few years. It's actually nicer in my opinion for troubleshooting problems too as now it could be the modem or the Express (should you be having problems) instead of trying to figure it out with a combo unit.

    Overall though, despite those points, the AirPort Express is great. Easy to setup and I was online again within 5 minutes, surfing faster with great wireless coverage throughout the house. The Express sure is impressive in that it can do all that from a tiny box. Love this product! Thanks Apple for making a quality router series.

    Excellent Router- Tricky to set up with Line of Sight Wireless Providers

    Wireless internet providers with line of sight radio systems (non-cable/ADSL) must set up your router for security reasons before your internet will work on this router. Do not plug the Ethernet cable directly from the router to your computer before the provider has registered your router. The router will pick up your computers IP address and not the IP from the internet provider and it is challenging to re-register the proper IP on the Airport Express router after it picked up your computer. Also the router must not be in the Bridge Mode. Set it for DHCP mode. After the provider has registered the router, you must un-plug the wireless system from the provider and the power from the router. Power up the providers system first, wait 2 minutes then power up the Airport Express router. Once it powers up again, it will automatically register the proper IP address and your online. Very happy with the small footprint router and have 5 bars on my new Apple TV unit 40 feet away through walls and furnace room. Working great. Very happy so far.

    Absolutely Excellent

    I brought the AirPort Express with the intention to use in my student flat. 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!

    Color me impressed

    Because Apple allows anyone to post a review without verifying if they actually made a purchase I'm suspicious of the negative reviews. With that being said I consider this one of my best purchases from Apple. I was able to return my Xfinity router/modem combo that I was renting and have this up and running with just my iPhone! First off it's incredibly easy to set up just download the Airport Utility App and follow the simple instructions! As for as performance, I'm experiencing much better performance than I was experiencing with the Xfinity SMC router. I literally thought that I was going to have to pay for the top of the line internet service to ge5 the performance that I wanted. No more buffering and no more difficulty logging onto my game online. I highly recommend this product!!

    Excellent WIFI Router

    Got one of these today to take over from the router supplied by Sky in the UK. Setup was extremely easy and quick using Airport utility on my Mac, iPhone & iPad. The connection seems more stable and functions like handoff seem to work fine now. You have the option of extending your network or as I did disable the Sky WIFI access point and use it purely as a modem letting the Airport Express handle all WIFI. The only downsides were the USB port on the back can't be used with an external drive as a quasi time capsule (you need an Airport Extreme for that). And the fact it was harder to configure the WIFI connection on my Daughters Windows 8 laptop, which wasn't too much of a surprise.

    Does what it says on the tin

    Bought this today to extend the wifi range upstairs in the house where I have a problem with single strength. I took the Airport Express out of the box connected into the power socket in a location midway from my Airport Extreme and where the weak signal spot is. Within 10 minutes I was connected and up and running, super duper.

    Apple Airport Express

    I installed this unit as a wireless access point in my house (connected back to DSL router via ethernet). Works very well and easy to setup using Apple Airport Utility. Can't be faulted. Don't use in wireless extender mode, works best when connected via ethernet.

    Installed by a Senior Citizen

    Staff at Apple Store explained in simple language what to do, so I bought one and brought it home and had it running in less than 10 minutes as an extension of my Time Capsule. So simple. Well done Apple.

    Replacing BT Infinity HomeHub 5

    Bought this to replace a BT Infinity HomeHub 5, which has been unreliable from day one, with WiFi just disappearing all the time, sometimes the Internet connection going away, and generally I wasn't happy with it.

    It's really very easy to replace the HomeHub 5. However, it doesn't work if you just have the OpenReach faceplate in your home; you need the OpenReach modem, which plenty of people sell on eBay for a few pound (I paid £7 including postage); you plug the OpenReach modem in the wall, the AirPort Express into the modem, set it up with Airport Utility, and you are up and running in five minutes.

    So far it has been running much smoother than the HomeHub, with no problems at all. The HomeHub was fine once it got going, big downloads were fine, but it sometimes struggled with the simplest websites, and the Airport Express doesn't.
