    Everyman's WiFi Network

    I bought the Airport Express Base Station to replace two older AEs, one extending my network on the 2.4 GHz band and the other extending the network on the 5 GHz band. I plugged the new AE base station in and launched Airport Utility 6.1. Airport Utility detected my existing network and in seconds had configured the new base station to extend my network both the 2.4 and 5 GHz. The only action I had to take was to click the button to update the AE. It could not possibly have been easier. Even the greenest novice should be able to set up a relatively sophisticated wireless network with this combination.

    Simple yet powerful

    You know I really have to give those apple employees a lot of credit, your all amazing!
    This router is elegant, simplified and powerful. It took a matter of minutes to set it up, provided the range, speed and connectivity to all my devices effortlessly.

    Keep designing great products!

    Works great!

    Got this to stream music to an old speaker system. It works great. Set up took less than a min, plus it extends the range of our wireless network.

    Would only get this if you are looking to expand your network, not if you wanted to use it as your main router. Get the Airport Extreme for that.

    Don't Bother

    Useless piece of rubbish.

    The first one I got didn't work. Got a replacement and it was worse. Sent the third one back and got a refund. It worked for about 3 days... and then nothing.

    I expected more from Apple. Only gave it one star because I couldn't give it zero.

    FANTASTIC!

    This router replaced my Belkin router that I only had for a few months. It would always drop its connection and Airplay would never work so I had to keep unplugging it to restart it. With Apples AirPort Express I no longer have these problems. My Internet is always connected and Airplay is always there when I need it. Thanks Apple!

    Does not work

    I have tried installing 2 of these in the last few days. Both times it will not extend the network connection. I get an error stating "An unexpected error has occurred, please try again". Afterwards the router does not show in the Airport utility window. It only returns after I reset the router by pushing the button.

    I suspected the salesman knew there was a problem for the device. He assumed I wanted to return for a refund, not exchange. My desire to try a second airport seem to caught him off guard. Maybe should have taken his hint and just asked for a refund. I am trying it now and will likely return it in the morning.

    Now, how do I get my older version back from my cousin??

    Apple and HP... Lovely combo...

    I'm not one to write reviews but this is the best wireless station you can buy! The AirPlay is sooo sweet with the right set of 3.5mm jack speakers. I got the Print feature to work using HP ePrint app ( I have an older Photosmart C4280). The app detected the printer. Transferring files to this app from Pages or accessing documents through the supported cloud drives is a breeze! Hit the print button and its good to go! Thank you Apple!

    Changed my life. I'm not joking.

    I looked at Bluetooth audio adapters for a week before I realised that Apple made something.
    Now we are streaming the best underground tunes through Itunes to the old stereo and it has made a huge difference to our day to day life.
    If your interested in the sound quality - don't get a bluetooth adapter. Get this.
    It does not do everything I wanted it to though. If you want to maximise this unit you need the AP Extreme as well.
    I wanted to extend my existing Dlink routers range. It is not possible to do this with 3rd party routers anymore (as discussed in the forums).
    Still a wicked unit though.
    BTW: Quite hard to set up with a 3rd party router. You may need to download the old version of the Airport Utility to get access to the settings you need such as WEP40.

    Airport Express

    Just purchased this yesterday to extend my wifi range for Apple TV in family room, and it WORKS LIKE A CHARM! Streamed all movies and content from internet connection through Comcast and had no stops or pauses playing them. It truly did extend my signal further out to the other end of the house, thank you Apple!

    Using as the Ethernet source to my HTR-4065 Yamaha

    Just got a new 5.1 channel Yamaha receiver from Costco. It has AirPlay but only an ethernet port. I used the AirPort Express to wirelessly connect to my existing Linksys WRT400N dual band wireless router. The AirPort Utility walked me through the process although some of the questions the wizard asked me took some time to figure out and I did reset the unit to factory defaults a couple of times because I messed it up. Now the soft green light is on and my Yamaha stereo is happy. The AirPlay feature on my iPhone actally wakes the receiver up from standby and out comes music. Too cool

    Awesome

    Bought this after reading some posts online. Wanted to extend my network (airport extreme). It was ridiculously easy to setup. Plugged it in, connected my iPad, settings ->wifi, entered my network password and that's it. Works great.

    Great addition to AirPort Extreme

    I've extended my wireless AirPort Extreme network with Airport Express. Setup is simple, signal strength is great and response time is outstanding. The Extreme is connected to a high speed cable modem in an upstairs study and the express is placed in a downstairs family room. I'm accessing the Internet via the Express with an iPad, a laptop, an iPhone, and a Blu Ray player and have experienced no problems whatsoever.

    Great!!

    Extened my network range easily with a few taps from my iPhone. Don't know why I didn't do this sooner.

    Returned the first day

    I bough this hoping to extend my Wi-Fi, but sadly it failed. It never connected to my router in the first place, I rested it and restored it to factory default 3 times. I tried a lot of times and it never connected. Very disappointing with this product. I looked at the booklet in side and look at my router. The router was perfectly capable but every time my iPhone said "An unexpected error has accored, please try again"

    Dont buy

    This is the worst apple product I have ever bought. I had netgear wifi before which worked fine but my daughter needed wifi, so I gave her my netgear and thought I would upgrade to this.
    Ipad and {phone all find wifi but can not connect.

    Looking to but the netgear wifi which is easy to use and much cheeper

    Simplicity and Complexity all-in-one-place!!!

    This Express knocks the previous version from the curb to the next city!! Way to go Apple!!! If you need a wireless device to extend your current network, this thing is hands-down the best device on the planet right now!!! Setup took 30 seconds, maybe a minute!!! Works flawlessly with all 10 devices we are connecting to the Wi-Fi... even our flatscreen TV can now see & play the shared iTunes file on our network drive!!!

    The best wifi router I have ever had.

    The difference that this little gem of a product has made in my home network cannot be overstated. ISPs are pushing out modem/router combos a lot these days, and it comes at the expense of performance for the consumer. After frustration with wifi slowdowns I decided to purchase the Express and use it in "bridge mode" with my Bell Modem/Router. It now is my sole source of wifi and the performance difference is incredible. Not only does it provide a solid signal over a broader range, the actual transmit rate equals the speed I get if I were to use an ethernet cable. Apple brought wifi networking to a laptop first, as well as the 802.11 standard for the consumer into the home with the original base station. Simply put, they know how networking should be. This is the best performing product in this category. If you have a modem/router combo from your ISP, you need to bring this little guy into your home so that you can consistently get the speed you pay a hefty price for every month. I wish I bought one sooner. I love my "White Apple TV" and I am never using another router again. The fact you can access set up and monitoring with the free iPhone/iPad app is a wonderful bonus.

    Plug and Play!

    If all your electronics are Apple, this is a MUST have. I needed a booster for the back of my house and this was perfect combined with my AirPort Extreme. I plugged it into the wall, opened AirPort Utility on my MacBook Pro clicked the box in the upper left hand corner of the AP Utility pop up and the Mac did the rest! Once it was set up and showed up in my Network, I unplugged it and took it to the back of the house and plugged it in. FOUR bars of Network signal!! YES!! I can't believe it took this long for me to buy this! MUST have if your Network needs a boost!
