    very good small wi-fi powerhouse

    • Written by from west linn

    very grate router. I got the airport express to replace an old airport time capsule, that started to drop the wi-fi signal, , after 3 years of use, from getting to hot, when backing up data. This, in comparison to the time capsule, cools down very fast when not in use. It's vary small, and sits vary comfortably on my desk. I love the audio airplay feature, i use a logitech subwoofer, and it sounds great. I get 3 of 3 wi-fi bars on my iPhone when i'm outside, and my neighbors really enjoy it. Over all this has been a good upgrade for me, with out having to pay another $100 for the extreme. I originally was going to get the airport extreme, but this was a great deal, for what i need it for. In the future, I may get an airport extreme, but for now, this is great for what i need.

    Best Little Router You Can Buy

    • Written by from Dushore

    The AirPort Express is the best little router you can buy. I purchased it to replace a combo Netgear ADSL Modem + Router (all in one) because the wireless was giving me quite a bit of trouble despite tweaking settings, changing channels, and so forth. So, I was looking for a small and compact router that offered wireless, but also one that worked well with my Mac products. The AirPort Express does all of that, and it's affordable. I did look at the AirPort Extreme as well, but I was still settled with the small size of the Express.

    So, I've gone back to a separate ADSL Modem and then separate router because the combo ones just don't work well from my experience over the past few years. It's actually nicer in my opinion for troubleshooting problems too as now it could be the modem or the Express (should you be having problems) instead of trying to figure it out with a combo unit.

    Overall though, despite those points, the AirPort Express is great. Easy to setup and I was online again within 5 minutes, surfing faster with great wireless coverage throughout the house. The Express sure is impressive in that it can do all that from a tiny box. Love this product! Thanks Apple for making a quality router series.

    Excellent Router- Tricky to set up with Line of Sight Wireless Providers

    • Written by from Calgary

    Wireless internet providers with line of sight radio systems (non-cable/ADSL) must set up your router for security reasons before your internet will work on this router. Do not plug the Ethernet cable directly from the router to your computer before the provider has registered your router. The router will pick up your computers IP address and not the IP from the internet provider and it is challenging to re-register the proper IP on the Airport Express router after it picked up your computer. Also the router must not be in the Bridge Mode. Set it for DHCP mode. After the provider has registered the router, you must un-plug the wireless system from the provider and the power from the router. Power up the providers system first, wait 2 minutes then power up the Airport Express router. Once it powers up again, it will automatically register the proper IP address and your online. Very happy with the small footprint router and have 5 bars on my new Apple TV unit 40 feet away through walls and furnace room. Working great. Very happy so far.

    Color me impressed

    • Written by from Johns Creek

    Because Apple allows anyone to post a review without verifying if they actually made a purchase I'm suspicious of the negative reviews. With that being said I consider this one of my best purchases from Apple. I was able to return my Xfinity router/modem combo that I was renting and have this up and running with just my iPhone! First off it's incredibly easy to set up just download the Airport Utility App and follow the simple instructions! As for as performance, I'm experiencing much better performance than I was experiencing with the Xfinity SMC router. I literally thought that I was going to have to pay for the top of the line internet service to ge5 the performance that I wanted. No more buffering and no more difficulty logging onto my game online. I highly recommend this product!!

    Staff at Apple Store explained in simple language what to do, so I bought one and brought it home and had it running in less than 10 minutes as an extension of my Time Capsule. So simple. Well done Apple.

    I bought this together with an Airport Extreme, mostly as a WiFi extender to bring internet to a somewhat remote location on my property. After a simple setup of the Airport Extreme, this little device simply began to work, before I could even download it's utility. Doesn't get better than that. A vast improvement over my previously used and utterly unreliable netgear router system. I used the utility/app only to double check and set up a guest network. I am very pleased with this product.

    Simple. Fast. Sleek.

    • Written by from Munster

    Simple -
    Takes only a minute to setup. Quite intuitive and streamlined. One click to play your phone wirelessly to speakers attached to the Airport.

    Fast -
    Carries any speed I can dish out. Streams video on multiple devices at the same time.

    Sleek -
    Minimalist design. Cords all in the back. Small LED indicator.

    Love this!

    Airport Express

    • Written by from coram

    After having trouble with Netgear routers I purchased to AirPort Express. Setup was extremely easy. The speed of my WiFi improved dramatically over my Netgear model 4500. Setting up the guest network was quick and easy. I highly recommend this product.

    Love this product

    • Written by from linn

    when i first bought this i wasn't sure how to use it because i thought it extended the wireless network i was on, while i was at a hospital at the time their wifi wasn't the best so i thought this would simply make it better but i was wrong. i held onto it until i moved into a home and hooked up the new network and come to find out it saved me 50 bucks by essentially working as wireless router. and my signal is strong and it works better then i ever imagined thank you apple keep up the good products. home run with this...

    I'm loving my airport express. My current modem/router combo was constantly dropping the Wi-Fi signal. So I bought this airport and bridged it to my modem and haven't had a problem since.. Couldn't be more pleased. It has great range and even reaches upstairs and in my basement..

    Best wifi router on the planet with an affordable price

    • Written by from San Francisco

    This adorable Wifi router known as AirPort Express, is an exceptional performer that is appropriately priced for its size and function. Due to living in a condo that shares the network with a bunch of users using different wifi routers and networking devices, this little wifi router works extra hard to give you the accessibility you need to go on the internet and also to maintain connection through other devices located in the room, for example like this wireless switch that operates through the wifi network in order to turn on and off the light in the bedroom. Neat and easy set up, provided by Apple technical service representative who would assist you with steps to help you configure your wifi router through the network set up so you can get the best results. And the price is just a great reason why this router is a great start up for those who are new to the network setup. I got this wifi router through Apple after ridding the router provided by Xfinity(Comcast). I do recommend you trying this little AirPort Express to see for yourself how affordable it can be.

    Works awesome to extend extreme

    • Written by from Long Valley

    I just purchased one today and set it up to extend my 5ghz network from my extreme. It took 2 minutes to setup and that included the time to find the perfect spot. Before I put this in ,the 5 ghz only went to about 25% of my house and with the express w/extender setup, the 5ghz now covers my entire house which is great for all of our apple products. Highly recommend and super thrilled.

    Excellent Network Extender

    • Written by from Chicago

    I am not big on writing product reviews. Other than this one and one for the Airport Time Capsule, I have only written maybe three others. A product has to really impress me for me to make the effort to write a review. Also, I will admit I was an Apple hater until 2011 when I got my first iPhone. Last year I replaced my PC with a Mac Air and I’m fully hooked!

    I used the AirPort Express to extend my network. Works like a charm! Only word of caution, ignore the instructions provided in the Support section on this site. Just make sure the Airport Express is with in range of your Extreme, Time Capsule, or Express base station; plug it in; start Airport Utility and click extend network.

    Instant Solution to My Problem

    • Written by from Duvall

    I've been having trouble for over a year getting a clear, strong data transfer rate between my Airport Extreme in the office and my Apple TV in the family room. Most days, movies would have to buffer for up to an hour or even longer before they were ready to play.

    I tried every quick fix I could think of: relocating the router, a wireless repeater, and even a powerline ethernet adapter. Nothing seemed to help much. I was on the verge of switching to a different router in the hope of getting more broadcast power. I resisted resorting to the Airport Express due to the cost, but none of the cheaper fixes were working.

    It only took about a minute to connect it up and about another minute to configure the Express to my network and suddenly my Apple TV finally works the way it's supposed to. Hi-res video is virtually instantaneous. No buffering problems at all.

    What made it totally worth it to me was the seamless set up. I can't count the number of hours I've spent troubleshooting my other solutions. But with the Express, my problem was fixed within 10 minutes of opening the box.

    Great Range Increase and Easy Setup

    • Written by from Stuart

    I was getting frequent drops on my home Comcast WiFi system. After reading the reviews on the AirPort Express I decided to purchase one. I noticed Apple had a refurbished unit for $72 including shipping, so I decided to purchase it. In the meantime I had hoped that the Comcast tech that was scheduled to come and check out my network would arrive after I received the Airport Express. Sure enough, about 30 minutes prior to the tech arriving my Airport Express was delivered by FedEx. I waited until the tech arrived to connect it just to see what his reaction would be. He saw I had purchased the Apple product and said it would really be an improvement to my internet and it would be more stable. Sure enough, the ease of installing it and the performance and range really did improve. You must first have a modem as this is only a router, but I decided to still keep my Comcast modem/router unit until I get another single modem which I presume will be a Motorola Surfboard which he recommended. My main goal at the beginning was to get back up and running again. I recommend this product to any one wishing to improve their internet service.
