    Hi Roseann,

    Not sure what you mean by "travel(ing) through household appliances. I have the AP Extreme in our study on the first floor and am able to receive a full signal in our master room on the second floor on the other side of the house. This unit is more powerful than the previous generations and I would recommend getting it - my download speed increased 5-fold with this unit.

  • In simple terms, no. Wireless signals cannot travel through solid appliances such as fridges, microwaves, ovens etc as the signal is reflected off them. The WiFi signal will however "Bounce" around the appliances. For best use, position the AirPort Extreme with a clear and unobstructed area.
