    AirPort Extreme access point

    • Written by from Modesto

    Purchased the AirPort Extreme to use as a Access Point. I have UVERSE 75 internet service and was getting slow wifi connections (around 25 mps next to the router). Configured the airport using the airport app (on my IPAD). Turned the wifi on the 589 off. Now my wifi connection rates are 70-75 mps. Easy to set up and really happy with the performance.

    Wonderful Router

    • Written by from Essex Fells

    This product is top of the line. Along with its time capsule counterparts, the ac wifi is incredibly fast. I have never had an issue with loading anything or airplay. This product is absolutely amazing and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone.

    I have been running the same "Airport Express" for the last four years. Thought it might be time to upgrade and send my signal out a little further. Hooked up the "Airport Extreme" and what a magnificent difference. Internet loads faster and no dead spots in my home any longer.
    Was easy to hook up... if you take your time and not rush things... * NOTE ... take your time and let everything load as it should and hookup will be easy. Would I buy it again? You bet I would!

    It Just Works

    • Written by from Centreville

    As the famous saying goes this device just works. I had constant drop outs with my previous router and my speeds weren't anywhere near what I was paying for (75mbps). I've had this since December 2014 and I could probably count the drop outs on a single hand if that. The speed is consistently fast as well. The best compliment I can give this device is that I rarely even have to think about it.

    Airport Extreme: extremely pleased

    • Written by from Boise

    Replaced an old Airport Express 1264a with a new Extreme. From box opening to set-up and running in less than 5 minutes. Airport Utility made it easy. Used the same ID and password as old express and all my devices were still connected after replacement. Strong signal in residential home. WiFi test showed it was a bit better than old router. Main reason for buying a new router was to have additional ethernet ports. I wish the rest of life was as easy to set-up.

    it really doesn't get any easier than this

    • Written by from MAYFIELD

    I have struggled over the past year with my old wireless router, I had a friend tell me about the Apple airport extreme after purchasing it, I was slightly reluctant to believe how easy it was everyone was saying, it literally took me longer to get it out of the package then it did for me to connect it. Signal strength is awesome everywhere on my property and the speed is too! But the best thing is now, my Apple TV works like it should!!!! five stars!!!!!

    New airport

    • Written by from Enumclaw

    So far I've been using this product for two days and I went to print some things and I have an old Canon PIXMA IP 4000R and that of course is a wireless printer but old-school. And I had to change wireless networks at home to print to it because my older fifth-generation AirPort Extreme would not connect to it but this one does and finally realizing that after minute or so that I was printing without changing wireless networks I was all excited. I'm going to give my old wireless AirPort Extreme to my daughter. It's a different looking design having a little mini tower instead of a flat pancake like device. It's so fast!

    Awesome Router!!

    • Written by from East Earl

    I was previously a diehard NetGear router fan. After three High end very expensive NetGear routers failed on me... A friend of mine has had the 5th and now 6th Generation routers. He swore by them. So I decided to give the Airport Extreme a chance! Very happy with the speeds and range of signal I receive in our 1,600 square ft townhouse. Every floor and inch has great signal! Apple, you've done it again! Very pleased!

    Love it! No more connection issues!

    • Written by from Sylvania

    I have always used the modem/router provided by telcos. It would work for 6months and then connection would start dropping out, become slow etc..

    Airport Extreme as solved all of my connection issues!

    Fantastic line of routers.

    • Written by from Elgin

    I had the last gen version of the Airport Extreme (the Mac Mini shaped one) and loved it. It recently stopped functioning--I believe because of a recent brown out in our house--and I decided to replace it with this new model. Color me impressed. My old one did a really great job giving us a good solid wireless N signal two floors away, but this one is even faster and more solid.

    Speaking generally though--these are the most solid routers I've ever owned. They never need to be restarted and they last forever. I highly recommend them. Power users or network admins may not find them to be the most versatile as far as options, but for the standard user, they're amazing.

    Airport Estreem

    • Written by from LANCASTER

    I love this product. This is the 2nd Airport Extreem I bought for myself. When my daughter's old Linksys died, I handed her down my old Airpoort Extreem "hot plate" model which still worked perfect, and I installed the new model Airport Extreem in my new wifi setup. The old Airport Extreem never disappointed. I have had the new "tower" model for almost a year now, and it seems to be a lot more powerful in range and with the amount of devices you can run through it at the same time. I like the feature of automatically switching the the best frequency for the device that is connecting to it. I wouldn't buy anything else. It does what is it suppose to.

    After many rounds of frustration with Netgear routers and extenders, I decided to give this Airport Extreme a try. They do have a great return policy...It simply just worked, out of the box. Set up was very intuitive and simple, and it immediately recognised the Airport express that I use as an extender. I coould not be more pleased with this product, especially since this isn't a spare time/hobby for me, but I use it for work 24/7. I had it in service for 3 weeks now, and it has been flawless, meaning I don't even know it's there. Precisely the opposite of other brands I have owned before. It is hard wired to a satellite modem, my 2 computers, printer and airport express are tied into it. While expensive, I am very glad I went with this set of routers. All my other apple wireless devices like ipad, iphone and apple tv talk to it flawlessly. Guests with Androids etc also have no issue connecting to my guest network. Time will tell if it is durable and can take power outages etc. But so far, so very very good. I downloaded the utility for it on all my devices, but it had already began to work before I got done downloading. My kind of equipment.

    Solved my problems!

    • Written by from Kennesaw

    Had to call Apple support to walk me though the set-up but the support was fast and painless once I was pointed to the "Settings" app on my iPad. The AirPort Extreme is seamlessly supporting multiple i-devices and Smart TV's without the buffering I was experiencing with just the Motorola Cable modem alone. Great product so far, worth every penny!

    • Written by from Chevy chase

    I was dreading replacing our old router, but the setup process for the AirPort Extreme couldn't have been any easier. We keep our modem and router on the top floor of our 4 story house and the signal is really strong on all 4 levels, even in the basement. The internet connection is super fast too. Another great product from Apple!

    Have ran a other brand name router for over 10 years yes N speed etc. but was having issues! Come too find out it was not the router! But seeing at the time I would upgrade why not go HIGH END! ( the old one was still better rated then some of the new! Going into my parents house now!) But my IPhone 6 is the only thing with he AC Speed. But when I would be in my barn working the iPhone would work as long as the door was open! LOL Now with the door closed I still get full signal and if I was more then 200' from the house i lost the wifi signal! Now I can be over 300yards from the house and still be connected! SO YES THE AIR PORT EXTREME HAS FAR SURPASSED WHAT I WAS EXPECTING AT THE BEST!!!

    Made all the difference, really like it

    • Written by from San Antonio

    I was skeptical that this router would fix some of the range and throughput issues that I was having. I took a chance and was glad that I did. It extended the range over my previous router that Time Warner provided significantly. Throughput is great and the added bonus of wi-fi support for 802.11ac is fantastic. My iPhone 6 and Macbook Pro fly now and other legacy wi-fi enabled devices are working a lot better including two Roku 3s, Samsung tablet, Xbox One and other devices.

    I should have bought an Airport Extreme a long time ago!

    • Written by from LAVAL

    Installation took no more than 5 minutes, literally. And finally no more signal dropping. Signal is reaching every corner of the house (basement + 2 storeys), even outside on my driveway. Connection speed is at 300 Mbps on my 802.11n devices/laptops. I have at least 10 devices connected to it. I'm eager to check the speed it on 802.11ac devices.

    Got rid of signal dropping? yes. Delighted? yes. Paid a bit more? Yes. Recommend it to a friend? absolutely.

    If you do not need to create VLAN's and do crazy stuff, then this router is a no-brainer for home use -should you be willing to spend the extra bucks. For me, it's worth it. I highly recommend it.
