    Excellent

    Added the Apple AirPort Express as a piggy back router to our NetGear Wifi Router and the connection in our house soared immediately. Moved the AirPort Express farther away from where the NetGear Router is located. Definitely a Buy!

    Better Than Ever!

    Just purchased a new, Airport Express, and set it up with my existing Airport Extreme. I've been using Airport Expresses for years now, and the setup process was so simple, and quick, I really am surprised! It works great, and we now have solid reception, every in the house.

    This is the best Express, yet, and am so glad I added it to our home network.

    Simple yet powerful

    You know I really have to give those apple employees a lot of credit, your all amazing!
    This router is elegant, simplified and powerful. It took a matter of minutes to set it up, provided the range, speed and connectivity to all my devices effortlessly.

    Keep designing great products!

    Works but tempermental during setup

    If you do not think, plug the unit in, install the app, auto config, it works great. If you think about it, look at any settings other than what it wants to use you get no where fast.
    Saying that...
    I have gone through to many Linksys products, more than I can count. They work well at the beginning, about a year and then you get to reset the units daily. So far I have not had any issues with the AE and would recommend this to anyone who does not want to think.
    I have used this unit in Japan as well, worked great on most networks... if you auto configure.
    If it last 2 years I would buy again... stay tuned.

    Works Wonderfully!

    I was getting horrible internet in my apartment complex and decided to give this a try. Got this all set up and BAM! I've never been happier. Set up was a little tricky, but all that took was a call to customer service and they helped me. I would definitely recommend this!

    Awesome product

    I had a router that came from a CERTAIN TERRI BLE cable company and my service kept cutting out every 5 minutes. I finally discovered it was the router. I turned down said cable company's offer to send a new one for a fee and went out and bought this. i love it. ive had it for about 2 weeks and it has never once cut out. It's one of the best apple products I have ever bought!

    Wonderful Product

    Please don't go by all the bad reviews about this product. It is a wonderful product. Brought one for home use and it'a been really improving my Wi-Fi speed. Quick and easy to setup using AIrPort Utility. Been also great for Printing. Have an AirPrint HP Printer which was so old it didn't work with my brand new MacBook Pro 15inch Mid 2015 model. After connecting it to my Base Station Wi-Fi (this product) I was able to start printing and using it on my new Mac. I highly recommend this product to anyone. Apple is a great company and makes great products.

    I have 3

    The Airport Utility makes setup trivial. In less than 5 minutes I had a functioning wireless network. I bought two more and extended my network around and outside the house. This is awesome in the summer/spring time when I am sitting in the backyard sipping a cold brew or early morning coffee while reading on my iPad Air.

    Easiest router I've ever set up!

    Sure you could probably save twenty bucks on some d link router. However, this router was so simple to setup its totally worth it! It took like three steps. Plug in, imac detect it, then name router, DONE! Also and this may just be my expierence but I noticed my wifi was significantly faster.

    Very simple way to extend your WiFi

    I own an Airport Extreme and for a long time had a dead spot in my apartment. After much research on trying to do this with older non-Apple routers (Linksys e2000 and Netgear MR814v2) I owned, I came to the conclusion those routers did not support the repeater mode I needed to make this happen.

    I then proceeded to check out the AirPort Express. After further research, I went for it and I have no regrets what so ever. Yes in typical Apple fashion you do pay a premium, however, it literally took me two minutes to set up and now I no longer have a dead spot in my apartment.

    If you own an apple router and looking to extend the WiFi in your home, I definitely recommend this product/approach. Very simple and hassle free.

    Not sure why there's so many bad reviews.

    I have had no problems at all with my AirPort Express. I love it. It's the perfect product, especially for an Apple lover such as myself. I have my MacBook, iPad, iPhone, Apple Watch, and Apple TV all hooked up to it and it's very fast and reliable. The range could be a little better, but this is the base model, I'm sure the Time Capsule will be better, which I plan on getting as well.

    Can't turn off 2,4GHz - interference problems

    Despite having 5GHz and 2,4GHz bands, the software does not allow to turn off 2,4GHz, which interferes with the MagicMouse, MagicTrackpad and wireless keyboard, various DECT phones and other bluetooth devices. Also if you have an HTC Vive, the 2,4GHz will interfere withouyour controllers. Until Apple allows to use this with 5GHz only, don't buy it. Other than that, awesome device, the hardware is solid and reliable, purely a software issue.

    No problems here

    I'm sorry to read all the reviews by people who are having continual disconnects. I wonder if Apple's cut some corners since this current generation of AirPort Express came out, because I bought mine several years ago (in fact I only came to the site tonight to see if Apple had released an AirPort Express AC yet, as I'd like to have an all-AC network but don't want to fork out the $$ for another Extreme) and have not experienced the disconnect problems some people are reporting. My wifi network consists of one Airport Extreme AC whose connection is extended by an older dual-band Extreme N and one of this current generation of Expresses, and I experience zero spurious disconnects in months of continuous use. I have in the past had problems creating a network because my devices couldn't establish a connection with either the Extreme AC or the Express N, but I seem to have gotten past that somehow (don't remember how now - it was a long time ago) and I don't recall ever having a problem with any Apple router just up and dropping its connection without warning.

    I keep the firmware updated on all my routers - I open AirPort Utility periodically just to see if there are any updates available - and wonder if that might have anything to do with it. Do the people experiencing disconnects keep their firmware updated? Maybe there are other conditions contributing, like proximity to other electronics? All wireless routers are purported to work better if they're not surrounded by other electronics that can interfere with the signal...

    Surprisingly top notch

    Gotta say, after dealing with leased modem/router combos with significant issues from my ISP and many of the top networking companies routers having serious reliability issues I decided to pick one of these up. I snagged a used Express from an onlin retailer to give it a try. We have a few macs, iPhones and a few PC's in our house amongst other wireless enabled devices and we had always had issues, but they were all resolved upon hooking this up. My network space isn't too cluttered so we don't have too many issues using either band or dropped signal. Streaming is great, pages load nicely. I was kind of surprised, I know apple isn't quite a networking company but this little guy holds up. So much that I bought a new AirPort Extreme for a little upgrade and it's working wonderfully. Think these will stay my daily drivers for all things home wifi for a while.

    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.

    Great!!

    Extened my network range easily with a few taps from my iPhone. Don't know why I didn't do this sooner.

    Simple elegant solution to wifi range issues

    I already use Ariport Extreme to create my wireless network for my family's computers, laptops, pads and iPhones. However, I couldn't get a decent signal in my family room at the other end of our house due to appliance interference and construction obstacles. I learned about Airport Express and purchased today. I simply plugged in the Express in my family room opposite the TV, waited a few seconds for my AirPort Extreme to recognize it and bam! We now could receive a strong signal to our TV. Works perfectly and as described.

    Great Wifi Router and Repeater

    I absolutely love this. It's small and strong! I live in a concrete house and getting a wifi signal to connect to the bedrooms is hard. I had this in my living room and it reached into my room. I got a second one to extend the signal to the back of my house.
