There just isn't a better home WiFi available
5
Posted by: from Portland, Or on 11/22/2013Apple scores again. The airport extreme is perfect for our big family. Large 2 story 4000sqft home. I stream videos over Netflix, while one son games on WoW and the other son is playing CoD and the wife is surfing. All done wirelessly, and not a bit of buffering ever. It never goes down, or resets or needs updates, like all things Apple, it just works. You plug it, set up the WEP password when prompted, and done, could not be easier.

It didnt work

Posted by: from Providence Ri on 09/19/2013It simply didn't work. I tried everything to set it up. Also, I purchased this because the worker said my router at home wouldn't be able to handle the speed of my iMac. He lied..

Great Router for the price
5
Posted by: from colorado on 09/11/2013I really like this router for the speed that it offer and the fact that the router will allocate bandwidth to devices that are requiring more bandwidth vs. other dives on your network.

Great router
5
Posted by: from Syracuse, NY on 09/07/2013I have had issues with other routers in the past and decided to rely on my ISP for combo units recently to push the burden of support on them. After using an ubee combo modem/router from twc, I was very disappointed in the limited range and packet loss throughout my home. I have other apple products and decided on the AirPort Extreme. It's a bit pricey, but I have had no issues since making it the only router in my network. AirPlay and air mirroring works flawlessly now as opposed to always having issues with the ubee router. I'm not sure about other brands successes, but if you utilize apple products and services I recommend this item.

have better signal
4
Posted by: from seminole tx on 08/24/2013I bought this because the apple guy said it would cover more area and faster signal. I was looking for a booster for the router that I had and came across this. It did make the signal more powerful but it is still weak at the other end of house (house is not that long shorter than what he said it would reach) the price was the same as a router and booster so I bought it just wish it would get as great a signal at that part of house
