    Apple AirPort Extreme me918am/a

    • Written by from Kingston

    Super fast and easy set up - even faster performance ! Just moved up from the 5th gen to this newest model . Using late 2011 macbook , with a couple apple tv2 , ipad2 , iphone 5 and iphone 4 . Everything that worked very well previously is moving even faster ! Looking forward to 802.11 Macbook air laptop soon ! Excellent range and power - even working backwards on b/g/n - probably 25-30 percent faster and same in increased range . Happy i made this decision ! Well made and looks great , prefer the aesthetic of this new router over the 5th gen . No longer using 5th gen extreme , and airport express -- the new device puts them both into retirement ! or for sale ! lol

    Incredible speed

    • Written by from Redondo Beach

    I purchased 2 of these puppies to replace my 2 Gen5 Extremes. I upgraded my TWC to 50 Mbps and now I can get 50 Mbps EVERYWHERE in my house when previously I was getting 50Mbps only close to the router and 20 Mbps everywhere else. These puppies are FAST! setup was a charm as it allowed me to automatically copy the configuration of my old extremes, and cleaned up afterwards ready to sell them on amazon.

    I now get 50 Mbps on all my devices, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, 3 iPads, and 2 iPhone 5s, no matter where I am.

    Great Performance

    • Written by from Aurora

    Before I bought this product, I was using the Time Capsule as my router. In the 4-5 hours that I have been using this, I have seen a great increase in speed and performance on my Retina MBP, iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, and iPad mini. So far this is a great router. It was easy to set up out of the box, and the new design has also increased my WiFi distance.

    Pros: Lightweight, easy to set up, huge increase in performance and speed.

    Cons: Cost.


    Although the cost is higher, you will see much better performance out of this than many other non apple routers. Well worth the $200.00

    Awesome upgrade

    • Written by from Smithtown

    I just installed the new Airport Extreme and couldn't be happier with the results. It has extended my range throughout my house. Far better than the previous version. Apple has done a great job on this product.

    Great router

    • Written by from Montreal

    I just bought the router an hour ago and I am really satisfied. Streaming videos on 4 different PCs and speed hasn't been affected! Also, range is excellent.

    Great buy!

    Turning it off - not what I had hoped for

    • Written by from Tulsa

    After 3 months of painfully sporadic wi-fi reception around my house I gave up. I turned it off for good and replaced it with a ASUS RT-AC68U. Now I get much better reception across my entire living space. The ASUS router is located in the same space as my Apple Airport Extreme was, so I chalk it up to a better radio and antenna circuit.

    I think this unit would be great for a small home or apartment. It just couldn't handle the distances I needed it to cover.

    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!

    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.

    So Easy

    Set this up using my Macbook. Was the easiest router I have ever set up. Easier to set up than apples wireless keyboard and trackpad even, and those were really easy.

    Great router for apple wireless devices and external peripherals

    • Written by from Aizkraukle

    Bought this router from local reseller in Riga. I've had few problems with previous router, that was working only on 2.4GHz, because of bluetooth interference (apple keyboard and trackpad). Then I decided to buy a new router, that is AC and can go dual band 2.4 / 5 GHz. So, bought this router. The setup was easy with airport utility. Also tried to connect old printer with USB to the back of router, and it worked even better than expected. Also tried to connect my USB flash drive to a router's USB port, and on both MacBooks (late 2013 retina, 13") we have, we could use it as external drive / time machine backup drive. Also the usb drive it can be used for files sharing.
    When using 5 GHz, the signal is great and bluetooth isn't interfering any more, because it works on his own 2.4 GHz. Can't tell anything about the range, because our apartment isn't that big to test the range.

    Second Airport Extreme and absolutely love it!!

    • Written by from Phoenix

    I replaced an older version of the Airport Extreme, a 2009 version, with a new version today - November 20th, 2014. I have a huge home all on one level so I have a couple of Airport Expresses around the house as well - newer versions that do not plug directly into the wall. It took me about 10 minutes to go from old to new with great signals throughout the house. The newer version seems to be much faster than the older one. Love these guys and would recommend them to everyone that needs to upgrade a home wireless network system no matter if you have Apple products or not. I have an old Windows PC and it also operates faster on the internet with the newer device. Worth the money in my opinion. By the way, the older version may have dropped off the internet once or twice in 5 years?? Been so long since it happened I do not remember. LOL!!

    Great Product

    • Written by from Roseville

    Ive used a lot of different routers over the past 12 years and just recently after a 5 year router that we updated was still running slow and replaced by two. One mid rage price and one near the top line price still had the same problems but now with disconnecting every day from the router having to reconnect. One day we say the airport extreme and i was like every product i own is a apple product and i said why not lets give it a try. After watching the reviews i get great connection never once did it drop a bar and pixelate I'm so happy with this product. Keep it up apple that just made me enjoy using my internet again.

    The best router

    • Written by from Sofia

    I've had many routers for last 5 years, but When I change all with Apple Airport how everything works fine. I have one Airport Extreme in The living room and one Airport Express in the bedroom. The internet connection is super and the speed of Home Network is the best. I have many devices at home - Mac Mini, MacBook pro, MacBook Air of my wife, 2 iPhones, 1 iPad, one WD My Cloud wifi hard drive and 2 Smart TV which I use to play movies and music from Internet and from My WD My Cloud wifi hard drive. This is the best configuration ever, and I've never thought to change AirPort with something else.

    Best router I ever had.

    • Written by from Chambly

    This is certainly the best router I ever had so far. For people who don't want to waste time configuring or do complicated tasks with their router, this is the one. And on top of that, the range is just amazing.

    Guest Network is MAC-filtered like the primary network

    • Written by from LONDON

    If I set up a guest network it's because i want my guests to be able to connect easily. How stupid is it that the primary and guest networks share the same MAC address access list??? It means that in order to connect, guests have to be registered into my AirPort! Imagine the length of the list!
    A decent product all in all, but really such a ridiculous oversight on the part of Apple for the most expensive wireless router out there is not acceptable. You can get £15 wireless routers that manage to get this one right!
