Does Airport Extreme work with Time Capsule?

At present I have a Time Capsule next to my router and an Airport Express elsewhere in the house to extend the range. However I still have areas where I cannot receive WiFi. If I replace the Express with an Extreme will I get a better and more far reaching signal? Or should I just buy another Express?

    It depends on which express and extreme you have. The newer the better capability. With the extreme you can usually get better reach since it has more antennas. I just setup my new time capsule and it has way better reach and speed then the last version of time capsule which is the airport extreme with an added hard drive. I was previously using an airport express as well and it did well but the time capsule was way better and the new one can replace both all together. I would recommend getting the new time capsule/airport extreme and selling the others. The new extreme/time capsule has 6 antennas now, 3 for 2.4ghz and 3 for 5ghz.

  • I have been able to speak to an Apple tech and they confirmed that it is the same exact wireless modem used in both. Thanks
