    I am using three units

    I use one as my network's firewall / Wi-Fi access point and I use two in bridge mode at home. They work very, very well in both settings. I think the express is well worth the investment, and I have found these to be more reliable than the AirPort Extreme (I have had to return two Extreme units -
    malfunctioning)

    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.

    Awesome

    Make your own AirPlay speakers

    With many speaker manufacturers no longer making AirPlay compatible speakers, the AirPort Express is a great way to make your own AirPlay speakers! I have two AirPort Expresses and use them in different rooms exclusively for AirPlay. I have each AirPort Express connected to a decent set of computer speakers that are always on and connected to the AirPort Express. When configured as an AirPlay receiver, you just select the device from iTunes or iOS device and playback starts. I am thinking about buying more to expand my AirPlay network.

    fast and consistent speeds

    I purchased the airport extreme to increase the wifi range and consistency of my home network. i live in a 1000 sq ft apartment and my $40 netgear router wasn't doing the job. purchased the airport extreme thinking i would back up my macbook over wifi, but found the speeds to be inconsistent and comparable to what i was getting with the $40 netgear router. returned the extreme and picked up the express. i am so happy i did. i get my advertised cable speeds at 30 Mbps consistently throughout the day. well worth the money and recommend to anyone who is considering upgrading router.

    I'm impressed

    I have two older Airport Express (3 or so yrs old). This new version vastly increased my coverage and everything is much faster!!! I do wish they had the option like the old units to plug directly to the wall without a cord for portability but that is my ONLY complaint. Well worth $99

    Airport Express Extends Nicely!

    Bought this little item to provide better signal strength on the second floor of my house. Have a 3TB Time Capsule in the basement as my primary router / WiFi radio. Received the new Airport Express from Apple today (2 days after ordering), unboxed it, took it upstairs with my iPad Pro, plugged in the Airport Express in my front bedroom which is now our TV room / Den. Then I followed the instructions to set it up as en extender to my existing WiFi. That took about 5 minutes and it worked perfectly. Now we have max WiFi strength (3 bars) on the second floor. It was wavering between one and two bars before. Next I went down to basement and booted up my MacBook Pro laptop and brought up the Airport Utility app. There was my new Airport Express showing underneath my Airport Time Capsule in the main window. But it had a little red "1" beside the Airport Express so I touched that and a little note came up said there was a Firmware Update available. So I clicked on it. It failed part of the way through. So I clicked on the update button again. This time it successfully downloaded, prepared, and installed the firmware update (7.6.8). Then it took about 2 minutes to restart the new Airport Express (having a yellow dot during the process). Finally the yellow dot turned to green and it said complete. I'd say the entire setup is very straightforward and easy to perform. I can only hope this new device gives me as reliable and trouble-free service as has the Time Capsule (now going on about 3 years old).

    THE best choice

    I buy the AirPort Express more than a year ago and it was the best buy that I have make in terms of connectivity. I have it doing (at the same time):
    1) extending my wifi from the Modem/Router that provide my ISP,
    2) providing internet a desktop PC that doesn't had a wi-fi card,
    3) attach to it a Net HDD of Western Digital which I use to backup and access my files thru the internet,
    4) attach to it a 5.1 subwoofer of Logitech which allow me AirPlay my music from my iPhone,
    5) At some point (not anymore) I had plugged in a Printer (using the USB port) that didn't had wifi and allowed me to connect the printer to my wifi network

    There have been moments where due to some actualization of the firmware o crashes of the modem of the ISP the Airport Express had to be reset it, but it have provided an excellent service since I buy it.

    Excellent Update

    I recently bought the latest AirPort Express, to replace my first generation AE which had been cutting my wi-fi connection in and out too frequently. I couldn't be happier with the new device. There has been NO loss of signal since I set it up last week. Not just that, but it's producing faster loading results.

    Best purchase I've made in a long while.

    Works awesome

    I bought this at my university bookstore to replace my Linksys E900....its great and stable and all my devices connect flawlessly...everything from my Mac, Ipads, Iphones, android devices, along with all my PCs connect with no issues, and no dropping of signal or freezing of network...its fast enough for everything I do, and my internet throughput increased to my maximum upload and download speed for my ISP...

    supports PPPOE

    I used this in conjunction with a Netgear DSL modem/router combo. I configured the Netgear to run in modem only. I was happy to discover that the Airport Express could handle all the other chores, like negotiating the PPPOE connection, DHCP, NAT, and everything else. On top of all that, it was incredibly easy to configure.

    Airport express is amazing

    I bought this router because my current Dlink dir-615 that I've had for about 3 years now was giving me issues. I would have to turn it on and off about once a week and my Internet connection would drop on my iPad but would work fine with my other apple devices. At first I was struggling to install it because I would get a message saying there was a DNS error so I did my homework and found out that when it comes to hardware devices the best thing to do is to shut down the power of previous router, airport express and MacBook Pro for about ten minutes and then power all the devices back on. Airport express works extremely great and I also noticed speed enhancement. Very satisfied with this product :)

    Don't know whay so many people had problems (get the Airport Utility APP!)

    From the moment you power the router on using my iPhone to program it was the easiest setup of a router I've even done. I'm using it with a Vonage adapter and a original Xbox using Ethernet and both work fine. Without the App (Airport utility) you can don the basics of the wireless setup but the router did want to go into bridge mode as it was plugged into the Vonage and was continuing that (makes sense if that's what I wanted)
    Using the airport utility I was able to set it up as it's own router so it was separate than the Vonage and having the Xbox then plugged into the Ethernet port of the express allows my iPhone, computers etc to see it. I was also able to set up the XBOX on a DMZ zone allowing all access to it so my NAT type was open. With the app also you can set up a wireless printer easily using WPS.
    Everything you can do on most routers this makes it easy using the app. If you have a computer can can even more options than the app gives you, again you just have to install the airport utility on those if you want to configure the router from them.

    I originally have 2 Linksys router, I replaced the 1 with a newer one, then replaced that with the apple router. Both routers before I was forever unplugging the router at least once a month sometimes once a week or even once a day to get them going again. The apple I can honestly say been using it for about 6 months and not have to reboot it once.
    Great router!!

    Fantastic!

    Purchased an airport express to extend wireless signal into my bedroom which had very poor coverage. I use an airport extreme as my primary router. Within minutes of opening the box, my bedroom had great wifi coverage. Great product. Very easy set up. Seamless integration with other apple products. Great purchase. Thanks, Apple!

    Airport Express 70% speed boost

    I just added an Airport Express to my network yesterday to allow more simultaneous devices to be connected, and to setup a guest network. The installation had one small problem - I received an error message - "an unexpected error occurred. Please try again". The written setup guide that came with the Airport Express indicated that if there were any problems the first thing to try is powering down the modem and Airport Express, then power back up. Once I did that, everything was flawless. Now the best news - I did speed tests before and after on what was already a fast home network. The download speeds increased by a minimum of 70%. The system has been operating flawlessly and we can now connect our 10 devices without any problem, and still have 40 additional connections left over. Very impressive piece of equipment from Apple.

    Great little router

    I purchased this router to replace a Cisco router that was at least 4 years old and had a very weak/no signal in some of the rooms of my single story, 1900 sq. ft. house.

    The new router was very easy to setup and took less than 10 min. When I setup the router, I used the same network name, password and password security (PSA/PSA2/etc) my old router used. I took this action to eliminate the need to change the network name/password on all of the devices I use (laptop, printer, IPod, etc).

    I now get a signal in every room of my house. The Apple router is worth the price.
