    Works Great in 5G mode

    I had bought and returned three wireless routers from best buy until I finally talked to geek squad and they recommended the Apple airport express or extreme. I now have no problems with new iPad mini or my iPad second gen loosing connection while on the 5 gh connection. A Belkin and two different net gears would keep kicking me off. Thanks geek squad and apple.

    Great

    I used this to connect it to my xbox through an ethernet and used this to extend my network. Works very well and is easy to use.

    Easy to Install, Easy to Use

    To be honest I am not an expert of networking stuff. I have used many different kinds of wireless routers. While most of them do work, they need some knowledge to setup and maintain, many times I encountered unknown disconnections and I had to restart them and prayed the problems get solved.
    Then I read a lot of information on AirPort, and Apple released the new generation, so I decided to get one. It ended up to be a great decision.
    The install was really easy, just like all Apple products, and the AirPort Utility app gives great visual information on the networking, and changing setup is so easy too. Also the WiFi is very stable, all wireless devices working great! I never see the connectivity limited icon again!
    Plus I haven't even put good use for the AirPlay function or connecting printer yet.
    In conclusion, great product! Worth the money!

    Magic!

    I have a pretty complex home network, with an Extreme Base Station and two previous-generation Expresses that extend the wireless network. I got this Express to extend it even further, plugged it in, and before I had a chance to open up the Airport Utility and change all sorts of settings, the utility opened up, assumed I wanted to extend the network again (!!), and the default settings it offered made sense. I know that this is largely due to the new Airport Utility, but magic is still magic. Range is very good, power consumption is minimal. Great gizmo.

    Great Product and some help with setup

    This is a wonderful product. As to the one star reviews I encountered a similar problem where it keeps asking for the password but there is a simple solution for most I think. If you are using it to extend the range on your existing extreme router for example, when you get to the part where it wants the password to connect it. It doesn't want the password you would normally use to connect a device to your wireless. It wants the password for the main router itself that you setup the day you put it in. Once you know this and enter that password problem solved. Hope it helps someone.

    If it doesn't work perfectly just exchange it

    Please don't be discouraged by the one star reviews stating this unit doesn't work. It should work perfectly, and if it doesn't, just exchange it: I purchased this unit for my daughter to extend the range of our wireless network (served by an older Airport Express) to her room and allow her to stream music. I know one should be able to plug the unit in, set it up in under 15 minutes, and have it to work flawlessly for years. However, setting this unit up failed several times requiring hard resets. Once finally set up, every device in my house could connect to this unit except my daughter's iPhone 4S running iOS 6. A call to AppleCare determined that the unit was indeed faulty, and the Apple store cheerfully exchanged it for another. The second unit was a breeze to set up, and has been working perfectly in every way, as it should.

    Well done...

    My ancient Airport express was finally replaced yesterday with this amazing little device...easy set up...Airport utility is easy as it comes...had to reset once....but so far so good with three iPhones, one Apple TV, three macs all humming easily off this little device...

    it helps

    I bought this product to hopefully help handle over 10 of the wireless devices in my home. it does great for such a little router. It's fast, and its really really easy to set up, I actually set it up by using my iPhone. No hassle, easy and quick, I recommend this product.

    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.

    MARVELOUS!

    This is better than the last AP Express. Great for extending my coverage over such a wide floor plan in my one story house. Also the usb port & Ethernet is great for external hard drives or shared NAS. Now I have end to end wifi coverage plus with the guest network! Great Job as always Mr. Jobs. GOD Bless You!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Solved my problems

    Had two other brand routers and had lots of wireless printing and airplay problems. Set this up in 2 minutes with my iphone and printing and airplay have not been a problem at all. Awesome! Finally a wireless router that actually works and is super easy to set up.

    Set up using my iPad!

    I have had a great experience with the original Airport Express...the new one is even better. I am now using it as my primary router for my home, driving other devices with an older router that is connected to the Airport Express Base Station (a really nice addition). The connections are much faster than with my Airport Express N. My MacBook Pro is very happy.

    Since my cable modem lives in my basement, being able to run Airport Utility from my iPad mad the set up extremely painless. I even got a pop-up window instructing me to power cycle my cable modem...how thoughtful!

    I fully understand the other comments regarding portability when traveling, but the new Airport Express exceeds my needs. Good job, Apple!

    Mac for setup required

    So I received this great product from my beautiful wife "BB" for fathers day...any who, i was excited! I wanted to setup the Airport Express right away, which i thought would take me just a couple of minutes. Lets just say this wasn't as fast to set up as Apple stated. After trying to use my iPad to setup, i finally resulted to using my MacBook. Pros: Using Airport Utility on my Macbook lets me easily change the channels for less-congested wifi. Plus, my internet is now quicker, (maybe cause i had a $20 router). Cons: I was only able to set up with my Macbook. I was unable to set up with iPad/iPhone. This took me about 15 minutes.
