    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!

    Great product, but it did not do what i needed it to do

    • Written by from Bonaire

    let me say over all this product is great and easy to setup it follows the old version of this product. also my setup for the house is an old netgear wireless router in the back room then attached is the netgear power over ethernet plugs to extend the wired LAN, then across the house is the older gen router attached to the living room ethernet plug, and also one in my bed with older gen attached to the netgear power ethernet plug. each of the older gen are set up as create a network to extend the netgear wireless router which works perfect, (also using the AirPlay to the stereos in each room). the product worked great in setting up the create a network mode but would not allow the guest network to be used since i was only using the connection as a DHCP connection. after doing some research i found out that the connection had to be connected using DCHP and NAT for the guest network to work. but in my case that particular mode was conflicting with the wireless negtear router already using the DCHP and NAT connection, which overall was connflicting with the new apple express base station.

    so overall i would suggest that the router be used as the main router to get the guest network to work and use the LAN port, to attach a good switch to add extra LAN connections, unless all of your devices are using a WLAN connection. this product world be best in a small house, dorm, appartment.

    AirPlay is Awesome

    • Written by from chicago

    the best thing about AirPort Express is the Audio out AirPlay Enabled, da new look goes perfect with my apple tv since they are the same size the same shape except that Apple Tv is black and Airport Express is white.

    Staff at Apple Store explained in simple language what to do, so I bought one and brought it home and had it running in less than 10 minutes as an extension of my Time Capsule. So simple. Well done Apple.

    Airport Expressly Useless

    • Written by from Halifax

    We have a number of Apple products in our home (MacBook Pros, iPhones, iPods, Time Capsule) and, sadly, an Airport Express. The Express was initially purchased to stream music though it seemed to suffer from wireless dead zones in our home. Attempts to use it as a network extender (from our Time Capsule base) have been only temporarily successful with no predictable reason for it working or not. After multiple resets, online advice and directions, more time has been spent trying to fix the device than actually using it.

    AIRPORT EXPRESS

    • Written by from Philadelphia

    I needed a router for my DSL connection. I have the late Macbook pro with retina display for 2013. It works great with it. I'm not an apple product fan, but I love how apple products are in sync with one another. It connects all wireless products. My macbook pro comes with airport utility to set it up. U can also download it to your ipad, iphone, or android. Overall, this is a good product, but the price is costly.

    Does not work as advertised

    • Written by from St-Sauveur

    This was sold as a network extender with a promise in store that it does not matter what type of network you have. This is not true. It would not work with my Cisco network and Apple product support admitted that it does not work with any network other than apple networks (apparently the representatives I spoke to get between 2 and 4 calls a day about this so it is a major problem). I have not tried it with an apple network, but based on previous promises I would not waste my money buying one to find out. Of course in order to find out it doesn't work you have to open the package, so guess what - no refund. Am not impressed with after sales service for this product and since it is our first time needing after sales support it really makes us ponder any further purchases from apple.

    Excellent

    Added the Apple AirPort Express as a piggy back router to our NetGear Wifi Router and the connection in our house soared immediately. Moved the AirPort Express farther away from where the NetGear Router is located. Definitely a Buy!

    At last!

    • Written by from Smyrna

    I purchased the Airport Express yesterday out of frustration with my 2008 router. It was always so complicated when I needed to reset the old one. The Airport was super easy to set up. I am in a two story home and the signal is strong everywhere. Needless to say this is a major upgrade and I'm happy.

    Great product

    • Written by from Richmond

    Set-up was a breeze. It took about 5 mins. This was a fresh change from the old Dome looking Airport I had from years. I still have it, but the reason for the change was b/c the product kept losing conection to the web. Plus it has out lived its time. The size of the new base station has a very small foot print. Amazing how small this item is. Can't wait to try airplay speakers with it.

    Express Depress

    • Written by from Portsmouth

    I love all things Apple--till now. Bought to replace an oldie but goodie Netgear router for wifi for my Imac, Macbook and iPhone. Out of the box, despite numerous tries, Express simply would not connect. Spent two hours with my Cox cable tech, the local Apple Retailer (where I bought) it, and AT&T (for my M-Cell booster), plus Mac online help. Kept getting a flashing amber light indicating no connection. Unplugged, re-plugged all connections, etc. Flat out refused to work. A possible, maybe, problem might be compatibility with AT&T M Cell, but still not sure. What I am sure is that in between attempts I reconnected my old Netgear router and it worked--and still does. Had to return Express. I dunno. I really wanted it to work.

    Awesome!!! Couldn't be more pleased!!!

    • Written by from Somerset

    I'm loving my airport express. My current modem/router combo was constantly dropping the Wi-Fi signal. So I bought this airport and bridged it to my modem and haven't had a problem since.. Couldn't be more pleased. It has great range and even reaches upstairs and in my basement..

    Sometimes it works!

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    I've had this little cube for several years now and while streaming music using AirPlay from my MacBook Pro works pretty well most of the time, in the past few months (and I suspect since the release of iOS8) streaming music over AirPlay from my iPhone is just a non-starter. It'll work for maybe 4-5 minutes and then the connection between the phone and the AirPort Express will go down. I know for sure the home network is not the issue. Gonna have to look to other products that support AirPlay, because sadly, on this one, Apple has delivered a doozy. Don't buy.

    Never thought I'd hate any Apple product....

    • Written by from York

    However, this one I do hate because it tarnishes the brand I love. Worked OK (not great) for about 4 months, but about 10 days ago it just starting behaving erratically. The green light glows, but nothing is coming through. If you connect directly to the cable modem the signal is fine. I bought a new ethernet cable thinking maybe there was a broken wire but it did not help. I have tried everything: new cable modem, new ethernet cables, new location, reset button, holy water, you name it, I've tried it. Devices will not connect to it and when they do they drop the signal after a few minutes. As of this morning I replaced it with a Belkin that costs 1/2 the price and so far, so good. Buyer beware: just because it has the Apple doesn't mean it performs like one.

    Signal drops out

    • Written by from Vancouver

    I bought this thing specifically to stream music from my various Apple devices (iPad, iPhone, Macbook Air) but I'm finding it SO frustrating. When it works it works great. But it's totally unreliable. Having people over for a party and trying to play music that will randomly just drop out every 30 seconds or so...unacceptable! I have a small condo so all equipment is within very close range. There is no excuse for this to happen. This has been an ongoing issue for over a year and Apple has done nothing to fix it or even respond. I'm kind of addicted to Apple products but for the life of me I can't tell you why. If everything worked properly I'd be their biggest fan. But in reality, it just doesn't. Not reliably anyway.

    Works but tempermental during setup

    • Written by from West Dundee

    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.

    Works Wonderfully!

    • Written by from Dothan

    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!
