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
Summary: I bought the Airport Extreme G5 for one reason: wireless access to external drives. I was excited about accessing files from my external drive and using Time Machine on my backup drive... from anywhere in the house! I got everything ready...
Set-up on Windows 7 terrible. Router works once set-up.

Summary: My router is quite new, so I am speaking mostly to set-up not long term reliability. I bought this very expensive router due to the combination of positive reviews and Apple's excellent reputation. The brick and mortar sales rep assured me there would be no problem using with my Windows 7 computer.
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.
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.
Easy Set Up; Looks Good; Needs to be Reset From Time to Time

Summary: The airport base station looks cool and was very easy to set up. It sends out a strong signal. The only downside is that from time to time it stops working and I need to unplug it and plug it back in again and then all is well. I have to do this once a week or once every two weeks.
