    This is very good

    I find this very good, my only negative is that the USB port is only for a printer and can not support an external drive. Also, i actually prefer the previous design where the whole thing plugged in to the electric socket instead of this design where there is a cable. Other than that, I find it to be very good and reliable, and incredibly easy to set up.

    Same old wifi problem

    I am starting to loose my patients with apple hardware and the constant dropping out from my wifi network. In the house we have an imac running off mountain lion, 3 iPhones, 2 iPads, 2 apple TVs (1x2nd gen 1x3rd gen) and I recently purchased an airport express. I have always had issues with my iMac dropping off the network which as you can imagine creates a problem with ATV and airplayit and servetome running on iPhones and iPads. Actually the iPhones and iPads seem to be the only devices that stay connected to the network. I have spent hours reading on forums about how to resolve the issue and have now become quite knowledged on router setting ip addresses,static ip addresses, ports etc, I am now in a situation where I have accepted that my iMac will not stay connected to the network through wifi and have fed a cable through the house to plug iMac straight into router however that doesn't doesn't stop airport express dropping off network. I have tried different routers with different settings and different networking options after hours of researching online. Apple products clearly have wifi issues that apple needed to sort out but they don't seem to care. Before you purchase ATV or AIrport express or if you are going to purchase an iMac that is going to need to use wifi, enter ' wifi problems with apple' into a search engine and just see the thousands of people with similar problems to myself. Sort it out Apple. Your hardware and software is great just sort the wifi issues out so everything just works without needing a degree in wifi networking. By the way as you can probably tell I decided to write this review after just realising my airport express had dropped off network again.

    Great Addition

    We use several Apple devices in my household. I have an Airport Extreme set up in my office, that alone was great. I will lose 1 bar on the other end of my house, I just installed my new Airport Express in the center of my home ( 2 step process with airport utility) now I have full bars in my entire house. You just cant beat that....
    It has been a great addition to our apple family.

    Excellent Router, great range, perfect for a home network

    This router is great for my home network, only took 10 min to set up and never had a fault. Great for streaming music from iTunes devices. Incredibly good range; my house has a brick wall through the centre and AirPort works perfectly through it. Well done Apple on a great Wireless Router

    Very Bad

    Says it can connect with 50 devices without slowing down. My family barely has 10 connected to it and the connections are terrible and speeds are 10x slower than my previous router.

    So Good, I own Five of Them!

    I first used the Gen I Express to create a wifi network in my apartment while on vacation in Italy. The landlord was so impressed, the next year he put them in all the apartments.

    I use a Gen II (hard-wired) to extend the wifi upstairs in my old house. This little gem is so, so versatile. Also, I use three of them (Gen I) around my house to connect my various stereo systems to Airplay. You don't need to buy an Airplay receiver, just slap one of these babies on with a Toslink or RCA cable and you're good to go.

    The only thing I would like to see is for it to have Gigabit ethernet jacks for faster throughput. Otherwise, it's perfect!

    Simply works. Good looking too.

    I have an airport extreme as my main router, which itself was a huge leap forward in stability, speed and simplicity from the d-link I had. But we live on an acreage with an extra building about 70 feet away and I got the Express as a range extender.

    It's a square, white hockey puck with a nice power cord.

    I plugged it into the wall. It gave me three options. I chose extend an existing network. I clicked that. I counted to 45. It worked. I now have equal speed wifi in our out building, same as in the main house. Success. It's pretty too.

    Extended range

    Purchased this to extend range of my Apple Extreme base station. House is on three levels with Apple Extreme on top floor. Could not get signal to back rear of house nor to out side front. Installed this unit on lowest level. Now receive signal throughout house plus outside of home. No dead spots. Excellent signal strength. The bottom line with these devices is placement. If you wish to use to extend your signal you may have to try different locations. The other factor is the cable modem bringing the signal to the base station. Is it b/g or b/g/n? Finally, the setup to extend is extremely simple. Just be sure you have your passwords.

    Airport Express is not reliable

    I would not recommend to buy this AirPort Express Base Station!! This is a second that I've purchased two months ego and I hoped it would work since the previous model worked only for 4 month. But, no it didn't. It starts loosing connection at first and then after several 'reset' it won't connect at all. Don't waste money.

    LIFE SAVER WHILE TRAVELLING AND IDIOT-PROOF

    This very portable device solved my e-mail access problems in Japan and I could set it up in one minute without lokking at instructions (which were in Japanese anyway).

    My problem was that in most hotels and public wi-fi hotspots, my e-mail/IS provider (TwWC-Roadrunner) blocked access from my iPad to its POP and SMTP servers even with secure server access disabled. Since many hotels in Japan offer free in-room wired WAN connection, I decided to create my own wi-fi network after unsuccessfully trying to retrieve mail through a portable wi-fi device running on one of the super-fast Japanese 4-G networks. That solved my problem and setting up the Airport Express (called Mac Express in Japan) was practically automatic using an iPad. Will never travel without that great device.

    M.G.

    Love this little miracle worker

    We have Xfinity service and it has been a hassle since we moved to our new home, which is a older and does not have a great flow for technology. We have been through so many routers that I was about to give up all together. I finally decided to give this tiny little item with the big price tag (in my world)a try. It was simple to set up and most importantly powerful. Our biggest issue was the amount of items would cause some items to drop off or a lot of time no one was able to connect at all. We would reset our router at least 4 times a day on average. With 2 iPads, 3 kindles, 4 cell phones, 2 computers, apple tv, and 3 game systems it never seemed to work out for us. Now with this little miracle worker everyone is connected all the time with no issues. We have had it set up for a week and I haven't reset it once. I am so happy that I could just dance.

    Does not work with ALL ISPs

    Thought I'd be smart and replace my trusty Linksys with an Apple product as almost all my computer stuff is Apple. Was I disappointed. The setup was this was frustrating. I thought it was the cable outlet. So the cable guy came and told me that the only was to this that and the other - all way above my skill level. But he couldnt do it for me as it was not his company policy to do this that or the other.
    So back to the store this goes.

    Easy & Effective

    Went to Apple Store, bought it on my Iphone and was out of the store (which was full) within 90 seconds. Got home, connected it to the power. Went to my Mac opened Airport Utility and was up and running literally within 10 minutes. It has extended the range of my network incredibly into my backyard/patio area. Kudos for Apple. It continues to be an incredible company (even w/o Mr Jobs No disrespect intended)

    Excellent!

    Our Wireless Access Point requirement was simple; fit for purpose and aesthetically pleasing; the Apple Airport Express 2012 satisfied both requirements with ease. Installed the unit high up a wall centrally located in our 30mx10m home; excellent signal throughout the house with AirPlay connection to our Hi-Fi stereo system via a 30m optical cable. No connection problems with Panasonic SmartTV, WD Media Player, iPad, Windows 8 network, smart phones – Nokia, Samsung and iPhone. Could not be happier – it works and works well! Installed a second unit at a friend’s house with the same excellent results; but this time the Apple Airport Express was hidden behind a painting artwork.

    Great Product

    The Airport express is great i wanted wifi in my garage but didn't have the range in my garage so I ran a Ethernet over power lines product from my Netgear Router down stairs into my garage and then wanted wifi so bought an airport express and plugged the Ethernet cable into my airport express and then went through some very easy instructions to make a wifi network.
    Which took about 3 mins.
    Would recommend the airport express to anyone.

    so far so good!

    Bought this when I moved. Hooked it up to my cable modem, printer and speakers.
    Works well. I consistently get 5GHZ signal. Airplay works well with my iphone, macbook pro but not my ipod touch (gen 2).

    I recommend it!

    Finally!!

    I just got a mac mini and started having issues with my Linksys router. I purchased a D- Link and their customer service was not able to connect it to my mac. Finally Apple suggested I get the Airport Express and it works amazing!! I no longer get the error "another pc is using your same ip address". Also I have a 2 story 1400 sqft house. I have it connected on the second floor and the reception is better than the other routers I had. I get full bar reception on my iphone and ipad all over the house with no issues. If you are worried about getting this one verses the extreme, just purchase this one and try it out. You may not need the more expensive one. I was told by apple support that this new one has much better reception than the old one. I am so happy and always willing to pay a little extra for apple products when they are so simple to use. I am very happy with this.

    Perfect for Fios!

    This is what I needed after trying 3 different routers and 1 antenna to my network. Works seamlessly with Fios!
