  • Excerpt: Small office environment. We've been using Apple Airports for multiple users for years now. Not the greatest experience of my lfe but it has always worked.<br /><br />Thought, with this new model, I would be upgrading some previous generation routers. AC seemed to be an idea worth considering. Turns out I was wrong. These have been slower, constant dropped connections, hangups.
  • Cons: Slow Connection Speed, Unreliable connection

Fancy Package at a fraction of your normal speed

  • 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.
  • Pros: ?
  • Cons: Does not work with old version of AEBS

  • 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

  • Summary: Forgot to mention that the utility to configure the AEBS is version dependent. 5.5 Doesn't work with 7.4.2 AEBS code and 5.4 doesn't work with the new 7.5 AEBS code? Compatibility / Interoperability anyone???
  • Pros: ?
  • Cons: Same
