Not nearly as good as expected

  • Excerpt: It's been five years since I changed my wireless router, during that time, my family has added more Apple products than any other brand. This router was easy to set up through my iPad, but almost immediately, my children, wife and I noticed that the reception was weaker -- not stronger -- in most parts of our house. For the first time ever, our iPads and Mac lost their Internet connection in the kitchen.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up
  • Cons: Slow Connection Speed, Unreliable connection

  • Excerpt: Purchased 2 to set a network in a large house.  No web based interface so had to use the airport utility from the mac.  One airport was setup as a router with ppoe DSL.  The second as a range extender.  Had to keep rerunning setup on the second one.  Finally replaced with a Linksys N Router and it reached throughout the house for half the price of one airport.  when it worked it the speed was very fast.  Also you cant clone the Mac address.

This is a pretty good router that almost works as advertised.

  • Excerpt: This router looks really nice on paper. However, when I acutally installed the software and started setting it up, I found that the setup guide didn't work out. There was some issue between the airport and out DSL modem. It seems like this was a rare problem, and is not likely to come up for you. The USB port works perfectly for a printer (except that you can't scan or use any features other than just printing).

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

  • 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.

  • Summary: It is a well made router that has nice features, but is far from perfect.
  • Pros: Very good range as compared to my Linksys WRT54G.
  • Cons: No web based setup. Network disk is intermittant. No dynamic DNS.

A Question of Value and Capability

TJS, Amazon
21 July 2009
  • Summary: My fourth Apple AirPort router, my eighth overall. In general, you get better value for your dollar from other manufacturers. And for any network scenario I've dealt with, I've spent far, far more time debugging problems with the AirPort routers than I have for the others. That may seem counter-intuitive given Apple's reputation for simplicity, but in the network arena that's been my experience. Some of the areas where Apple falls short, in my view...
