    Airport Express is not reliable

    I would not recommend to buy this AirPort Express Base Station!! This is a second that I've purchased two months ego and I hoped it would work since the previous model worked only for 4 month. But, no it didn't. It starts loosing connection at first and then after several 'reset' it won't connect at all. Don't waste money.

    LIFE SAVER WHILE TRAVELLING AND IDIOT-PROOF

    This very portable device solved my e-mail access problems in Japan and I could set it up in one minute without lokking at instructions (which were in Japanese anyway).

    My problem was that in most hotels and public wi-fi hotspots, my e-mail/IS provider (TwWC-Roadrunner) blocked access from my iPad to its POP and SMTP servers even with secure server access disabled. Since many hotels in Japan offer free in-room wired WAN connection, I decided to create my own wi-fi network after unsuccessfully trying to retrieve mail through a portable wi-fi device running on one of the super-fast Japanese 4-G networks. That solved my problem and setting up the Airport Express (called Mac Express in Japan) was practically automatic using an iPad. Will never travel without that great device.

    M.G.

    Love this little miracle worker

    We have Xfinity service and it has been a hassle since we moved to our new home, which is a older and does not have a great flow for technology. We have been through so many routers that I was about to give up all together. I finally decided to give this tiny little item with the big price tag (in my world)a try. It was simple to set up and most importantly powerful. Our biggest issue was the amount of items would cause some items to drop off or a lot of time no one was able to connect at all. We would reset our router at least 4 times a day on average. With 2 iPads, 3 kindles, 4 cell phones, 2 computers, apple tv, and 3 game systems it never seemed to work out for us. Now with this little miracle worker everyone is connected all the time with no issues. We have had it set up for a week and I haven't reset it once. I am so happy that I could just dance.

    Does not work with ALL ISPs

    Thought I'd be smart and replace my trusty Linksys with an Apple product as almost all my computer stuff is Apple. Was I disappointed. The setup was this was frustrating. I thought it was the cable outlet. So the cable guy came and told me that the only was to this that and the other - all way above my skill level. But he couldnt do it for me as it was not his company policy to do this that or the other.
    So back to the store this goes.

    Easy & Effective

    Went to Apple Store, bought it on my Iphone and was out of the store (which was full) within 90 seconds. Got home, connected it to the power. Went to my Mac opened Airport Utility and was up and running literally within 10 minutes. It has extended the range of my network incredibly into my backyard/patio area. Kudos for Apple. It continues to be an incredible company (even w/o Mr Jobs No disrespect intended)

    so far so good!

    Bought this when I moved. Hooked it up to my cable modem, printer and speakers.
    Works well. I consistently get 5GHZ signal. Airplay works well with my iphone, macbook pro but not my ipod touch (gen 2).

    I recommend it!

    Finally!!

    I just got a mac mini and started having issues with my Linksys router. I purchased a D- Link and their customer service was not able to connect it to my mac. Finally Apple suggested I get the Airport Express and it works amazing!! I no longer get the error "another pc is using your same ip address". Also I have a 2 story 1400 sqft house. I have it connected on the second floor and the reception is better than the other routers I had. I get full bar reception on my iphone and ipad all over the house with no issues. If you are worried about getting this one verses the extreme, just purchase this one and try it out. You may not need the more expensive one. I was told by apple support that this new one has much better reception than the old one. I am so happy and always willing to pay a little extra for apple products when they are so simple to use. I am very happy with this.

    Perfect for Fios!

    This is what I needed after trying 3 different routers and 1 antenna to my network. Works seamlessly with Fios!

    Freaking Awesome.

    The wifi is seriously as fast as being hardwired (we have Xfinity with 15/5). It is important to note the following which is why I'm so impressed:

    Our house was built in the 1930's so it's made of brick and sheet rock. Our cable modem is on the outside of all this in my room which is an enclosed porch. I do not want to mess with hardwire-ing all the computers in the house and the majority of devices using the network are smartphone and tablets anyhow. I was using the Linksys Wireless N-Range Extender but this comes nowhere close to this product!!!

    Works but tempermental during setup

    If you do not think, plug the unit in, install the app, auto config, it works great. If you think about it, look at any settings other than what it wants to use you get no where fast.
    Saying that...
    I have gone through to many Linksys products, more than I can count. They work well at the beginning, about a year and then you get to reset the units daily. So far I have not had any issues with the AE and would recommend this to anyone who does not want to think.
    I have used this unit in Japan as well, worked great on most networks... if you auto configure.
    If it last 2 years I would buy again... stay tuned.

    Apple Express + Motorola SURFboard 6121

    It's perfect. I have a 1900 square foot home, two floors, and no problems. My Airport express is on the second floor and plenty of wifi coverage across the entire home. I have cable internet so instead of renting from the ISP's, I just bought my own equipment (Motorola SURFboard6121). In combination with my Airport express, it was very easy to set up. I called my ISP first to set up my modem. Do not set things up on your own. Call your ISP. They will be needing your MAC i.d. from your modem to get the process started. Once that was squared away I called Apple and double checked my set up was correct. I'm very excited about my network. I have two iPhone 5's , an iPod 4, iPad 2, MacBook PRO, PS3 and a Wii. Even with all of this equipment, I have no problem obtaining fast internet speed. Thank you Macintosh.

    Great Product and some help with setup

    This is a wonderful product. As to the one star reviews I encountered a similar problem where it keeps asking for the password but there is a simple solution for most I think. If you are using it to extend the range on your existing extreme router for example, when you get to the part where it wants the password to connect it. It doesn't want the password you would normally use to connect a device to your wireless. It wants the password for the main router itself that you setup the day you put it in. Once you know this and enter that password problem solved. Hope it helps someone.

    Better Than Ever!

    Just purchased a new, Airport Express, and set it up with my existing Airport Extreme. I've been using Airport Expresses for years now, and the setup process was so simple, and quick, I really am surprised! It works great, and we now have solid reception, every in the house.

    This is the best Express, yet, and am so glad I added it to our home network.

    Works Wonderfully!

    I was getting horrible internet in my apartment complex and decided to give this a try. Got this all set up and BAM! I've never been happier. Set up was a little tricky, but all that took was a call to customer service and they helped me. I would definitely recommend this!

    Works Great in 5G mode

    I had bought and returned three wireless routers from best buy until I finally talked to geek squad and they recommended the Apple airport express or extreme. I now have no problems with new iPad mini or my iPad second gen loosing connection while on the 5 gh connection. A Belkin and two different net gears would keep kicking me off. Thanks geek squad and apple.

    Life Changing

    Ive had this router for six months now and it is flawless. Unlike previous third party routers that constantly crash and need to be power cycled - Ive never once needed to restart this Express and my connection on my MacBook, iPad and iPhone is consistent and never drops. Yes, its pricey, but you get what you pay for. Wireless speakers and printing are just icing on the cake.

    If it doesn't work perfectly just exchange it

    Please don't be discouraged by the one star reviews stating this unit doesn't work. It should work perfectly, and if it doesn't, just exchange it: I purchased this unit for my daughter to extend the range of our wireless network (served by an older Airport Express) to her room and allow her to stream music. I know one should be able to plug the unit in, set it up in under 15 minutes, and have it to work flawlessly for years. However, setting this unit up failed several times requiring hard resets. Once finally set up, every device in my house could connect to this unit except my daughter's iPhone 4S running iOS 6. A call to AppleCare determined that the unit was indeed faulty, and the Apple store cheerfully exchanged it for another. The second unit was a breeze to set up, and has been working perfectly in every way, as it should.

    Flawless and easy set up

    Bought an AP Express to extend my network from an Extreme Base Station since I am in a ranch type house and the reach of the network on one side the house would leave speed and connectivity some room for improvements.

    Very happy, received, connected in a snap, and Voila! The connection is that side of the house is now super fast (FIOS) and no regret, this thing work marvels!
