    Worked well but ............

    • Written by from Osler

    It worked well but only lasted 1 year before it packed it in. No one could get it working again so I started using my 4 year old express.

    Love It

    • Written by from Browns Mills

    The AirPort Express works as advertised. It is super fast and set-up for 4 computers, an Apple TV, iPad, and 2 iPhones took less than ten minutes. The unit comes in a very small form factor; matching the size of the Apple TV. If you want an easy to configure wireless router I would definitely suggest paying the extra few dollars for this unit.

    supports PPPOE

    • Written by from Moses Lake

    I used this in conjunction with a Netgear DSL modem/router combo. I configured the Netgear to run in modem only. I was happy to discover that the Airport Express could handle all the other chores, like negotiating the PPPOE connection, DHCP, NAT, and everything else. On top of all that, it was incredibly easy to configure.

    Airport express is amazing

    • Written by from Cudahy

    I bought this router because my current Dlink dir-615 that I've had for about 3 years now was giving me issues. I would have to turn it on and off about once a week and my Internet connection would drop on my iPad but would work fine with my other apple devices. At first I was struggling to install it because I would get a message saying there was a DNS error so I did my homework and found out that when it comes to hardware devices the best thing to do is to shut down the power of previous router, airport express and MacBook Pro for about ten minutes and then power all the devices back on. Airport express works extremely great and I also noticed speed enhancement. Very satisfied with this product :)

    Problem solver

    • Written by from simpsonville

    Replaced a 2 year old netgear n600 with this router and aside from having to update the firmware this thing has been a dream. Speedtest increased by 6mbps and no more connectivity issues. Connected to a charter cable modem this thing makes the best wifi network I've ever had.. Wifi kept dropping randomly And had no idea why, I live in a subdivision and the best I can guess there were interference issues with my old router but as soon as I got this one rolling and updated all is well. Aside from having to install airport utility app on my ipad from jump this thing has taken care of all of my problems. On top of that these things are easily chained to eliminate dead spots around your house.. I will be getting another one to put upstairs to strengthen my signal soon... It's also tiny so it takes up less than 50% of the space my old one did and it runs nice and cool so ventilation isn't an issue. Thanks again apple!

    Not happy with this product at all

    • Written by from Tucson

    Let me start by saying that I am fully integrated into the APPLE ecosystem. I have a iPhone, iPad, and a MacBook Pro. With that being said here is my review of the AirPort Express. I purchased this with the thought it would work as advertised and it doesn't. What's sad is this is the second time I've been duped by the AirPort Express. I bought the first one that didn't work as advertised, then I purchased this one and it's just as terrible. It doesn't boost the signal and my bluetooth speakers only work if I hard wire them into the box. It does set-up quickly, and that's about it.

    Fantastic!

    • Written by from Greenville

    Purchased an airport express to extend wireless signal into my bedroom which had very poor coverage. I use an airport extreme as my primary router. Within minutes of opening the box, my bedroom had great wifi coverage. Great product. Very easy set up. Seamless integration with other apple products. Great purchase. Thanks, Apple!

    Airport Express 70% speed boost

    • Written by from Eden

    I just added an Airport Express to my network yesterday to allow more simultaneous devices to be connected, and to setup a guest network. The installation had one small problem - I received an error message - "an unexpected error occurred. Please try again". The written setup guide that came with the Airport Express indicated that if there were any problems the first thing to try is powering down the modem and Airport Express, then power back up. Once I did that, everything was flawless. Now the best news - I did speed tests before and after on what was already a fast home network. The download speeds increased by a minimum of 70%. The system has been operating flawlessly and we can now connect our 10 devices without any problem, and still have 40 additional connections left over. Very impressive piece of equipment from Apple.

    Great little router

    • Written by from Longwood

    I purchased this router to replace a Cisco router that was at least 4 years old and had a very weak/no signal in some of the rooms of my single story, 1900 sq. ft. house.

    The new router was very easy to setup and took less than 10 min. When I setup the router, I used the same network name, password and password security (PSA/PSA2/etc) my old router used. I took this action to eliminate the need to change the network name/password on all of the devices I use (laptop, printer, IPod, etc).

    I now get a signal in every room of my house. The Apple router is worth the price.

    Serious Design Fault Jony...

    • Written by from Hassocks

    Perormance, setup etc. is fine, as expected, but placing of the AC input connector next to the WAN connector means that the unit has to be used with a cable for the AC, and the standard Apple AC plug adaptor cannot be used to plug the unit directly into an AC socket, as the adaptor overlaps the WAN connector. Means I have to carry an extra cable with me when on the road. Not good.
    Why not swap over the WAN and ethernet connectors, as the latter is not used by most people...

    A little bit outdated now...

    • Written by from Paris

    Good product except for the Ethernet Bandwidth limited to 100Mbps, and the WiFi n and not ac.
    I think it's preferable to wait for a new version.

    Great for apple products, does not work with any other routher!

    • Written by from Las Vegas

    Not for anything other than Apple products. Apple has set up the express to only extend apple networks. They say it is easy but if you have any router other than an apple product creating your network, you can not use an express to extend a network. If found this out the hard way and I'm a little upset about it. My time capsule will no longer boot, it was creating my network for my business. This put my entire company off line and prevented my system from backing up. It was also baking up my office computer that handles all accounting and photography work. This was a huge frustration. I decided instead of putting everything into one basket so that when it crashed at least the other would still work. I was going to get a router and an external drive for the back up. Well, now I can't extend my network anymore. Thanks Apple for not letting people know about this!

    Great experience

    • Written by from Decatur

    Router is super easy to set up. Now after two years of use, it still works perfectly. Great buy for a lower-range "Apple enabled" network (i.e. Airplay, Time Machine, etc.). Highly recommended for Apple users and PC users alike. Management is definitely more streamlined on Apple devices but I use the PC app now and then and it still has all the features and ease of use. Buy it!!

    Limited range and reliability.

    • Written by from morristown

    I am using my Express to extend the range of a ten year old Linksys wrt54g. My intention was to use it alone. First I have to say that I love the easy setup after I had understood how it worked and remote management is a cinch. It has provided decent speed over my older routers but then just stops transmitting for a while. The range is crazy depending on obstructions too; I can have it behind a small monitor and literally loose all connection to it but elevated it reaches well over 100 ft plus. This is not always convenient. I have decided to use it as an extension and it has been more reliable for that. It also does well with airplay providing it has a clear view of the transmitting device.
    I can see this being a lobby hotspot more than a heavy router and maybe the extra $100 would have been worth it. I will however, keep it for its portability and easy setup. I wish Apple was more clear on its limitations.

    Better than my Linksys router

    • Written by from Everett

    After doing lots of research, I decided This router best suited my needs. Very simple to install, And improved my wifi range all the way out to most of my backyard (1300sq ft rambler). This also solved my airplay issues I was having while playing videos. The speed seems slightly faster than my Linksys router, and I've not had any drops in connection like my last router that occurred quite often. It also looks very clean and simple on my computer desk.
