Doesn't reach our front room

  • Excerpt: To be fair our uverse didn't connect with our front room well. But, 2 Abt salesmen recommended this as a cure all your troubles product. Still can't get a reliable signal in front room. Otherwise, it's fine & looks cool.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection

Stays connected and great for bigger area coverage.

  • Summary: It's not an easy setup, you need to call Apple to get support. If you don't have an apple computer they won't give you support or there's a charge. However, once you're registered with your Apple laptop computer, then it's great customer service. It's a good router yet I don't know why it gets hot.It does go further especially in a larger home as far as wireless connection and it never drops the line or turns slow during the day.

Overall Good, Bad Antennas

kohenkatz, Ebay
4 July 2010
  • Summary: I wanted to buy this because I already have an Airport Express and I felt like they would work well together. The Airport Extreme actually has very poor range, worse than my old Actiontec Wireless-G router that I bought it to replace. I may open it up and add better antennas, or move it to a more central location in my (not large) house.

Set up your Apple Network

  • Excerpt: AIRPORT EXTREME WIRELESS BASE STATION (N DUAL BAND VERSION) The Airport Extreme is a ‘Dual Band’ wireless gateway (or wireless access point) from Apple, which supposedly offers longer wireless range and faster speeds due to the 5GHz frequency as opposed to the usual 2.4GHz with single band wireless access points. I bought mine online for around £150 (yeah, not cheap!).
  • Pros: Good speeds, Compact design, Easy setup, USB port for print server / USB drives
  • Cons: Expensive !  , Must use Airport Utility software, Signal varies

More show than go.

C. Hatfield, Amazon
22 September 2008
  • Summary: Fine for what it is, but not for this price. Sure it's easy to set up, but so are most wireless-n routers now. I went back to my DIR-655 because this isn't powerful enough to give me a good signal outside the house. If you have Macs (like me) and PC's mixed together it will work but so will most of the much cheaper competition (and they'll have more ports). Make sure it's placed centrally in the house if you can and it'll be fine.

Not one for today, but certainly a good piece of kit

  • Excerpt: Design over function springs to mind with some products. When Apple launched their iMac (the original colourful bubbles) they reshaped (excuse the pun), the future of technology. Their Airport Extreme Base Station followed this design mould, with curvy lines, basically resembling what one would expect a ship from outer space to look like.
