    Airport Extreme

    • Written by from Fallbrook

    Skeptical about this product being so good and easy to set up. Hey it's apple I gave it a try purchasing a refurbished one & setting it up the day I received it. The internet didn't work on the router so I called apple support & less than 2 minutes simply changing one setting I was good to go. Set up time took about 10min. What took the longest was the router uploading the data from my OLD router. Works like they said it would Perfect

    Best Wireless Router

    • Written by from Collegeville

    I had previously been using an old pc running pfSense but after buying this router, both speed and functionality were perfect. The antennas in this machine are phenomenal. I am able to get excellent connection even through four walls (one even made of brick). I'm very satisfied and would recommend this router to anyone looking for a quick, easy, and permanent Wi-Fi solution.

    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.

    Absolutely Disappointed

    • Written by from Muskogee

    I was excited about replacing my old router with this AirPort Extreme. The reviews were from one extreme to the other and with me being an optimistic individual, I chose to give the AirPort a chance. Man was I wrong!!! This router continually drops connection, streaming movies or shows are very jumpy. I could understand if I was running all of my apple devices at one time but it is absolutely sad that I can only run one device at a time and the connection is still horrible. My recommendation is to go with another brand or wait until Apple does better job in the router technology.

    It Was Work Fine..

    • Written by from Warrington

    Bought this about 6 months ago, the first 2 months works flawlessly, but then..!:

    1. After 2 months using it I have to restart about 1 to 2 times a day in order to have all my gears (1 iMac, 2 MacBook Pros, 3 iPad, 3 iPhone & 1 AppleTV) connected to it.
    2. Some times those gears are connected to the Airport"Not-So"Extreme, but they are not connected to the internet.
    3. Guess Network never work in any which way!.

    Very disappointing!.

    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!

    Don't buy this!

    • Written by from Grand Rapids

    Spent the money on this the beginning of April, 2015 and by mid May we started to notice first one printer stopped working then shortly after another printer then one of our computers (we have three different printers and five different computers for business). We reset the Air Extreme several times when the first printer stopped working which only helped for a day or two. When the second printer stopped working resetting didn't help at all. Now our main computer for our business says it is connected but won't go on line. This is so frustrating for only having this thing for 2 months. A total waste of money.

    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!

    Lots of trouble

    • Written by from Colorado Springs

    I have been an Apple fan for many years now, I bought this as a replacement to the Airport extreme that went belly up. This thing has been a constant source of trouble, it need constant rebooting and reconfiguring, I am sooooo sorry I bought this this. IMHO not worth the money.

    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!

    Disappointing Setup and Range

    • Written by from Wessington Springs

    Bought new Extreme in April 2015 from Best Buy based on Apple sales pitch...6 antennas, conforming beam, excellent range. I'll likely keep it -- even though it struggles to reach my iPhone in an upstairs bathroom -- because it took 3 hours to setup and I'm adverse to having "wasted" my time. Instructions from package were totally inadequate. Need to enlarge print and clarify. For example, how long should the amber light flash before turning green?! Who do I call or email for clarification? How do you use internet when you disconnect the old router and before the Extreme is operating? When I found a phone # and after waiting 20 minutes in the queue, the two experts I talked with were helpful and walked me through a time-consuming and complex setup as my new fiber optics router installed by Venturecomm three months ago did not recognize the Extreme. The router needed PPPoE and Extreme expected DHCP auto.

    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.
