  • Conclusion: The uncluttered 5GHz spectrum gave the best results by far, with the 100MB test file taking only 10.1 seconds to transfer. However, the performance in using 2.4GHz was disappointing -- we wouldn't recommend using this setting in built-up urban and commercial areas as other wireless network (and those darn microwaves) might cause significant interference. Our mixed-mode tests were expected, slowing the network down to almost half the speed of 5GHz in the long-range tests.
  • Pros: No Gigabit Ethernet, Only three LAN ports, 802.11n wireless standard still not finalised
  • Cons: Excellent performance in 802.11n-only mode (5.0GHz), Small, minimalist, inconspicuous, USB port for sharing printers or external drives, IPv6 and a range of security features

  • Excerpt: Opsætningen er meget enkel – også når du bruger Windows. Enheden har ingen ekstern antenne, men i praksis havde vi ikke de store problemer med at få den til at køre optimalt over længere afstande.

Schick und simpel: Apple Airport Extreme Base Station

CNET
27 May 2009
  • Summary: Apples WLAN-Router Airport Extreme Base Station hebt sich durch sein Design von der Masse ab. Auch die gewohnte Benutzerfreundlichkeit ist schon Pflicht. Doch ob das Gerät wirklich so einfach zu nutzen ist, und wie es mit dem Datendurchsatz aussieht, zeigt der Test.
  • Pros: hoher Durchsatz, Benutzerfreundlichkeit, echter Dual-Band-Betrieb, Unterstützung für Drucker und Netzwerkspeichergeräte, ansprechendes Design
  • Cons: nur begrenzte Netzwerkfunktionen, hakelige Unterstützung für externe USB-Festplatten, nur drei Ethernet-Anschlüsse, keine Webschnittstelle, kein Fernzugriff für Windows-Benutzer, unterstützt nur 50 Clients, Zugriff auf Speicherfunktionen nur mit OS X 10.4 oder aktuelleren Versionen

Apple Airport Extreme

Komputer for alle
10 February 2008
  • Summary: Et lille hvidt kvadrat er Apples bud på et nyt trådøst access-point, der dels laver trådløst netværk i hele hjemmet, dels dele printere eller eksterne USB-harddiske med alle på netværket. Og selv om Airport Extreme ikke er det billigste bud på markedet, er det klart den, der er nemmest at sætte op, så alt spiller. Tre minutter tog det os via den inkluderede gode software at installere et trådløst netværk med forsvarlig sikkerhed og delt USB-printer. Imponerende.
  • Pros: Nem opsætning, Enkelt design, Del printer og harddisk, 802.11n-standard
  • Cons: Intet gigabit Ethernet
