    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.

    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.

    Such Excellence

    We are IT professionals, and just replaced our 13 (yes 13) year old AirPort with AirPort Express. While we can troubleshoot anything, we really appreciate not having to! This was plug-and-play, and the performance is excellent. And as always, we also appreciate the great design.

    And a tribute to our 2001 AirPort. It worked wonderfully for all those years, only now failing. We haven't been able to use the AirPort Utility for years as the old device was not supported, but it did not matter. How many technologies work for 13 years????

    Using as the Ethernet source to my HTR-4065 Yamaha

    Just got a new 5.1 channel Yamaha receiver from Costco. It has AirPlay but only an ethernet port. I used the AirPort Express to wirelessly connect to my existing Linksys WRT400N dual band wireless router. The AirPort Utility walked me through the process although some of the questions the wizard asked me took some time to figure out and I did reset the unit to factory defaults a couple of times because I messed it up. Now the soft green light is on and my Yamaha stereo is happy. The AirPlay feature on my iPhone actally wakes the receiver up from standby and out comes music. Too cool

    Quick and Easy

    It took me literally just moments to set this up with just my iPad. Just download the correlating Airport utility app and you can be set up in less than five minutes.

    So Good, I own Five of Them!

    I first used the Gen I Express to create a wifi network in my apartment while on vacation in Italy. The landlord was so impressed, the next year he put them in all the apartments.

    I use a Gen II (hard-wired) to extend the wifi upstairs in my old house. This little gem is so, so versatile. Also, I use three of them (Gen I) around my house to connect my various stereo systems to Airplay. You don't need to buy an Airplay receiver, just slap one of these babies on with a Toslink or RCA cable and you're good to go.

    The only thing I would like to see is for it to have Gigabit ethernet jacks for faster throughput. Otherwise, it's perfect!

    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.

    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.

    Unstable

    Loses its connection constantly. Music playback suddenly clips and stutters, randomly can't be found on my network for airplaying, just disappears with no warning. Has to be reset every 2-4 days. Waste of money. The only product from Apple i regret buying.

    Life Changing

    Ive had this router for six months now and it is flawless. Unlike previous third party routers that constantly crash and need to be power cycled - Ive never once needed to restart this Express and my connection on my MacBook, iPad and iPhone is consistent and never drops. Yes, its pricey, but you get what you pay for. Wireless speakers and printing are just icing on the cake.

    Flawless and easy set up

    Bought an AP Express to extend my network from an Extreme Base Station since I am in a ranch type house and the reach of the network on one side the house would leave speed and connectivity some room for improvements.

    Very happy, received, connected in a snap, and Voila! The connection is that side of the house is now super fast (FIOS) and no regret, this thing work marvels!

    Gadgets cannot connect right away & signal is lost most of the time

    The first generation airport express was really a performer. So after 3 years of being impressed by its performance, I decided to get this new airport express a few months ago. I was disappointed. My gadgets (iphone, mac, belkin switches, ipads, smart tv) can't connect to the new express right away. I have to search the wifi signal and type in the codes again. Very disappointing product!

    Five stars

    Very easy to use and install. Much better than the previous version. I have a lot of problems with the previous version. Now I have the new version and 0 problems.

    The best router I have used

    First let me say I have used a large amount of different routers over the past 12 years. This is the first router that has never disconnected regardless if it's the MacBook Pro with the retina display, standard MacBook, Xbox 360, iPhone or iPad. My current Internet connection is 40 GB per second download 5 GB per second upload it has never dropped or lost signal while playing video games, downloading apps, etc. It does have only one RJ-45 output but everything in my house is wireless so that does not bother me at all. As for the configuration it was all automatically configured and the only configuring I did with the Apple airport express was to create a second network for guest users and set up passwords. The Apple airplay and network printer/scanner was all plug-and-play and required no configuring whatsoever. I've had this express base Station for a couple months and had zero problems with it so I highly recommend this product and I definitely give it a five out of five.

    Save your money

    Drops connection once or twice a day and must be unplugged and restarted. Wish I had read the reviews here before I purchased. I now know that's a common problem with the Express.

    My 5th Generation Extreme works great. Hard to believe the Express is made by the same company.

    Worst Apple's product ever - streaming just DOESN'T work

    I can't believe this product has 4 stars. Try to stream music with AirPlay... Every model of this device had issues with frequent music drop out when streaming... and unfortunately I'm the owner of this model...
    More than four years of complains of other users on Apple's forum...

    If you're going to buy it in order to stream music - think twice :-)...

    Better Than Ever!

    Just purchased a new, Airport Express, and set it up with my existing Airport Extreme. I've been using Airport Expresses for years now, and the setup process was so simple, and quick, I really am surprised! It works great, and we now have solid reception, every in the house.

    This is the best Express, yet, and am so glad I added it to our home network.

    Simple yet powerful

    You know I really have to give those apple employees a lot of credit, your all amazing!
    This router is elegant, simplified and powerful. It took a matter of minutes to set it up, provided the range, speed and connectivity to all my devices effortlessly.

    Keep designing great products!

    AirPlay is Awesome

    the best thing about AirPort Express is the Audio out AirPlay Enabled, da new look goes perfect with my apple tv since they are the same size the same shape except that Apple Tv is black and Airport Express is white.
