    Great experience

    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!!

    Better than my Linksys router

    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.

    Excellent Update

    I recently bought the latest AirPort Express, to replace my first generation AE which had been cutting my wi-fi connection in and out too frequently. I couldn't be happier with the new device. There has been NO loss of signal since I set it up last week. Not just that, but it's producing faster loading results.

    Best purchase I've made in a long while.

    Works awesome

    I bought this at my university bookstore to replace my Linksys E900....its great and stable and all my devices connect flawlessly...everything from my Mac, Ipads, Iphones, android devices, along with all my PCs connect with no issues, and no dropping of signal or freezing of network...its fast enough for everything I do, and my internet throughput increased to my maximum upload and download speed for my ISP...

    Love It

    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

    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

    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 :)

    Don't know whay so many people had problems (get the Airport Utility APP!)

    From the moment you power the router on using my iPhone to program it was the easiest setup of a router I've even done. I'm using it with a Vonage adapter and a original Xbox using Ethernet and both work fine. Without the App (Airport utility) you can don the basics of the wireless setup but the router did want to go into bridge mode as it was plugged into the Vonage and was continuing that (makes sense if that's what I wanted)
    Using the airport utility I was able to set it up as it's own router so it was separate than the Vonage and having the Xbox then plugged into the Ethernet port of the express allows my iPhone, computers etc to see it. I was also able to set up the XBOX on a DMZ zone allowing all access to it so my NAT type was open. With the app also you can set up a wireless printer easily using WPS.
    Everything you can do on most routers this makes it easy using the app. If you have a computer can can even more options than the app gives you, again you just have to install the airport utility on those if you want to configure the router from them.

    I originally have 2 Linksys router, I replaced the 1 with a newer one, then replaced that with the apple router. Both routers before I was forever unplugging the router at least once a month sometimes once a week or even once a day to get them going again. The apple I can honestly say been using it for about 6 months and not have to reboot it once.
    Great router!!

    Fantastic!

    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

    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

    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.

    No problems here

    I'm sorry to read all the reviews by people who are having continual disconnects. I wonder if Apple's cut some corners since this current generation of AirPort Express came out, because I bought mine several years ago (in fact I only came to the site tonight to see if Apple had released an AirPort Express AC yet, as I'd like to have an all-AC network but don't want to fork out the $$ for another Extreme) and have not experienced the disconnect problems some people are reporting. My wifi network consists of one Airport Extreme AC whose connection is extended by an older dual-band Extreme N and one of this current generation of Expresses, and I experience zero spurious disconnects in months of continuous use. I have in the past had problems creating a network because my devices couldn't establish a connection with either the Extreme AC or the Express N, but I seem to have gotten past that somehow (don't remember how now - it was a long time ago) and I don't recall ever having a problem with any Apple router just up and dropping its connection without warning.

    I keep the firmware updated on all my routers - I open AirPort Utility periodically just to see if there are any updates available - and wonder if that might have anything to do with it. Do the people experiencing disconnects keep their firmware updated? Maybe there are other conditions contributing, like proximity to other electronics? All wireless routers are purported to work better if they're not surrounded by other electronics that can interfere with the signal...

    THE best choice

    I buy the AirPort Express more than a year ago and it was the best buy that I have make in terms of connectivity. I have it doing (at the same time):
    1) extending my wifi from the Modem/Router that provide my ISP,
    2) providing internet a desktop PC that doesn't had a wi-fi card,
    3) attach to it a Net HDD of Western Digital which I use to backup and access my files thru the internet,
    4) attach to it a 5.1 subwoofer of Logitech which allow me AirPlay my music from my iPhone,
    5) At some point (not anymore) I had plugged in a Printer (using the USB port) that didn't had wifi and allowed me to connect the printer to my wifi network

    There have been moments where due to some actualization of the firmware o crashes of the modem of the ISP the Airport Express had to be reset it, but it have provided an excellent service since I buy it.

    Useful in CONCRETE & STEEL building!!

    Awesome product. I have two of these bouncing the signal to the furthest recesses of my house. I live in a 3000+ sq. ft. concrete house with steel paned concrete slabs, rebar in concrete and OWS joists between floors. Main router is in my basement and I have two of these boxes (on each of the two floors above). Works fantastically well. Noteworthy: my version is the older one (one box is 3 years old and the other is 2), this newer version must be better. p.s. - I don't work for Apple : )

    Signal extension plus airplay to my old receiver

    Added one of these in our guest house in order to improve signal strength. That worked great. Then I found I could add a cable and connect to an optical port on my old Denon. Now I am driving some vintage speakers with airplay off my phone or I-pad. I expect that guests will love being able to play their music through that system.

    Good product

    I've been using an Airport Express for over six months and it's fast, reliable and works well with other Apple products like Wake on Demand and can be used to Airplay audio.

    The size and shape is almost the same as a 2nd or 3rd gen. Apple TV. The price is a little high, but they can be found online a little cheaper than on Apple's site.
