  • If your question is whether the the Airport Extreme will work while immersed in water, the answer is of course not. It's not designed to be waterproof.

    However, if your question is whether Wifi signals will pass thru water - for example if you have a wifi-based sensor at the bottom of your swimming pool, the answer is it depends. An inch of water - yes. A foot of water - maybe. Five feet of water - no. Radio signals are attenuated by the materials they pass thru - walls, concrete, a swimming pool full of water. The more material the signals pass thru, the weaker the signal.
