    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 :)

    Not happy with this product at all

    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.

    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!!

    I'm impressed

    I have two older Airport Express (3 or so yrs old). This new version vastly increased my coverage and everything is much faster!!! I do wish they had the option like the old units to plug directly to the wall without a cord for portability but that is my ONLY complaint. Well worth $99

    Doesn't work wirelessly with VERIZON

    After three hours of trying everything I stumbled upon a Verizon forum for DSL connections dslreports (dotcom) /faq/12506
    The short answer is that the router that Verizon uses (Actiontec), will not work wirelessly with the Airport Express. You have to hardwire the secondary router.
    Back to the store it went and I spent the time wiring instead.
    I gave 1 star for lack of literature on this on the part of Apple.

    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.

    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!

    No connect to Yamaha Disklavier via wireless bridge to Airport Extreme

    I have spent several days trying to configure this jewel-like piece of junk. Running Lion 10.7.5 and Mountain Lion 10.8.3, Airport Utility 6.x (AU6.x) auto configure does not enable detection of piano using Yamaha's iPhone Disklavier App. Apple Airport 6.x has no manual configuration capability. For that you need a nonstandard install of Airport Utility 5.6 or 5.6.1 (depending on your Mac OS X version). Infuriating!

    Awesome product

    I had a router that came from a CERTAIN TERRI BLE cable company and my service kept cutting out every 5 minutes. I finally discovered it was the router. I turned down said cable company's offer to send a new one for a fee and went out and bought this. i love it. ive had it for about 2 weeks and it has never once cut out. It's one of the best apple products I have ever bought!

    Excellent

    Added the Apple AirPort Express as a piggy back router to our NetGear Wifi Router and the connection in our house soared immediately. Moved the AirPort Express farther away from where the NetGear Router is located. Definitely a Buy!

    This is very good

    I find this very good, my only negative is that the USB port is only for a printer and can not support an external drive. Also, i actually prefer the previous design where the whole thing plugged in to the electric socket instead of this design where there is a cable. Other than that, I find it to be very good and reliable, and incredibly easy to set up.

    Shockingly Bad

    Do not buy this. I bought it to create wireless printing capability for my new iMac and to boost the wireless signal. The wireless printing works, but the wireless signal is appalling. It only works intermittently and the signal from the cable company supplied router is actually stronger.

    In short, not worth it.

    Great Addition

    We use several Apple devices in my household. I have an Airport Extreme set up in my office, that alone was great. I will lose 1 bar on the other end of my house, I just installed my new Airport Express in the center of my home ( 2 step process with airport utility) now I have full bars in my entire house. You just cant beat that....
    It has been a great addition to our apple family.

    Very Bad

    Says it can connect with 50 devices without slowing down. My family barely has 10 connected to it and the connections are terrible and speeds are 10x slower than my previous router.
