Cons: I purchased this when it was advertised for only $99. For a refurbished apple router, this seemed too good to be true. Well, it was. My credit card was immediately charged but the product didn't get shipped. After one week with nothing from UPS, I contacted NewEgg to find out what happened? I was told this product was actually being supplied by a 3rd party vendor. NewEgg had no clue why nothing had been shipped. Two weeks after ordering, I finally got the router - in ...
Summary: I decided to try apple AirPort Extreme after my Asus router died. With my Asus router I would normally get a wireless speed test around 45-50mbps. Ok so now about the apple router. Installation was easy enough, decent range but when it comes to speed it averaged only 9-10mbps. For a "server type router" and "the best I can get" suggested by the salesperson, it's certainly not what was suggested. Only thing I liked was the clean design.
Summary: Can not extend the wireless network as Apple has a known issue where the new version and old version can't bridge wirelessly. Still no update to make this work after 5 months. They may make systems OK (don't use Mac's) but they are not an enterprise level networking company.
Summary: Burning up hours of time trying to get this thing (Airport Extreme, late 2009, latest model A1354) working. It cannot stream internet radio music to my internet radio, nor can it stream to an iPod Touch running a radio app for many radio stations. Turning off Guest Network made a big improvement, but still unusable compared to the DLINK DIR-655 that I am replacing with the Extreme. If I configure an Airport Express as my main router, everything works fine.
Pros: Can support Airport Express units for audio equipment
Cons: Really struggling with the Extreme Dual Band A1354
