Does anyone know the maximum "mbps" that the Airport Extreme can support? I need to know if the router can support in excess of 50 mbps (up/down).

Advice on Purchasing or Not!

    Purchase it, it's a great router, easy to set up. I did a bit of quick reading and it seems that this router might typically support about 250mbps in ideal conditions. Theoretically the 802.11ac standard can support up to 1300 mbps, but that requires special equipment in ideal conditions.

  • I had fios 150mbps st my old house and it ran fin, I think I lost about 3 mbps from modem to the airport extreme over an old cat 5e cable.
