    I needed a new wireless router, my old one was acting up, I researched routers and the Airport seemed like the best for me. I had read a few horror stories while researching it, people like me who had Earthlink DSL reported they had trouble setting it up ... I took a chance and after plugging it in, it automatically saw my MAC and I was able to set it up in literally 1 minute!!! I then went around and changed all the setting on the various wireless devices I would use with it ... again easy!!! I have 2 MACs wired to it, one wireless Mac laptop, a wireless PC, an iPad, iPod and Kindle Fire ... they all see it and the speed boost over my old router is amazing!!! I Highly recommend it!!!

    Bought this to replace my linksys 4200 and found that it was not as strong as the linksys. In fact it had only three lines out most have four. And the coverage is very bad vertically. I never got the AC speed unless I was 2-3 feet away. I have another apple express and it is just fine but using it in a smaller area. Maybe just not for my situation.

    Comments about Apple® AirPort Extreme® Base Station:

    The Apple Airport extreme is extremely easy to set up particularly if you have an iPad and iPhone or a Mac computer. With the click of a few buttons and setting a password you're on your way to be connected.

    Customer support was great when I needed help hooking apple airport extreme up. Since I didn't have a mac-needed help in the utulities area. Its great to have a router that you don't need to change your passwords with. Extremely fast-love it

    Should have bought this from the start!

    Comments about Apple® AirPort Extreme® Base Station:

    I have been through three modems and four routers since 2010. Thankfully my bro is a network guy and was able to help me out with the constant connection and range issues I was having. Unfortunately, he also lives 300+ miles away.

    The last router I bought was a Belkin 1200AC. I spent almost as much on that one as I did the Airport Extreme. Having a little knowledge, much of which I learned from countless frustrations dealing with previous routers, I was able to set up the Belkin with relative ease. However, less than a month later, I was dealing with the same issues over and over. Limited connection, my range would vary from hour to hour, or my router would completely drop off the list of available networks.

    I spent about five minutes hooking up my Airport Extreme and have never once had an issue since. On top of that, the range far exceeds what any of the other routers could do. Now I can connect from any corner of any room in my house. Granted the signal is not very strong in my den which is the furthest from the router. But even so, I can still connect, and the pages load faster than they ever have before.
