Apple AirPort Extreme Base Station and Wireless Router




Apple's Airport Extreme Base Station provides the perfect wireless networking solutions for both home and office environments. Smart and user-friendly, this dual-supported wireless access point has the latest 802.11n technology to provide fast and reliable Wi-Fi to any Mac computer, PC and any Wi-Fi enabled device.

Giving users 3 times faster Wi-Fi speed, the Airport Extreme Base Station has a powerful beam-forming antenna array that emits both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies. It is designed to provide the best available band according to device capacity.

This Apple wireless router also serves as a common storage for anyone connected, so you can transfer, back-up, or share your files to any device -- from photos, documents, and music, to heavier files such as movies and .zip folders. Or you can also connect a wireless printer and have your documents printed at your convenience.

Designed for maximum and efficient connectivity, the number of antennas has been increased, 3 for the 2.4 GHz band and another 3 for the 5 GHz. They have been positioned at the top of the device so they can send out the signal even better.

The Airport Extreme Base Station also takes full advantage of accepting any device operating on 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11n, and 802.11ac specifications, so any Wi-Fi ready device can give you online connection. The Airport Extreme also has an internal firewall that protects your network from any malware attack, so you won't have to worry too much.

If you're ready to experience fast and reliable connectivity, the Apple Airport Extreme is easy to set up! Just connect your DSL or cable modem and install it with the setup assistant from your mobile Apple device to instantly create a new wireless network. Through your Mac, you can set up through the built in Airport Utility app.

AirPort Extreme

The intelligent, easy-to-use AirPort Extreme Base Station with simultaneous dual-band support is the perfect wireless access point for home, school, or office. It offers next-generation 802.11ac Wi-Fi technology and delivers high-performance wireless access for Mac computers, PCs, and Wi-Fi devices such as iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Apple TV.

Ultrafast 802.11ac Wi-Fi.

With 802.11ac technology and a powerful beamforming antenna array, AirPort Extreme gives you up to 3x faster Wi-Fi and a stronger, clearer signal. And because it transmits at both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies at the same time, your wireless devices will automatically connect to the best available band for the fastest performance possible.

Share your hard drive or printer.

AirPort Extreme can turn any external USB hard drive into a secure drive you can share across your Wi-Fi network. So all the documents, videos, photos, and other files instantly become available to anyone, Mac and PC users alike. You can even connect a printer and share it wirelessly.

Designed with performance in mind.

With the antennas at the top of the elevated design, AirPort Extreme now has a higher platform for dispersing the signal. We also increased the number of antennas. There are now six of them - three for the 2.4GHz band and three for the 5GHz band. Together with 802.11ac technology, they let you connect faster, farther, and with more power than ever before.

Compatibility and security.

Any Wi-Fi device you have will work with AirPort Extreme. Thats because its compatible with devices using the 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11n, and 802.11ac specifications. And since AirPort Extreme features a built-in firewall that protects your network from malicious Internet attacks, you can enjoy the web with peace of mind.

Easy setup for iOS and OS X.

Connect your DSL or cable modem to AirPort Extreme and use the built-in setup assistant to create your new wireless network in just a few taps from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. If youre using a Mac, use the built-in AirPort Utility. Setup is just as fast and just as easy.

Works great... now!, 2013-07-09
By Rik 
Setup was challenging, perhaps because I was previously running a Netgear network, and the Apple IP addresses were not working with the previously set up Netgear ones (10... vs. 192...) So after much fiddle-tweaking, it works great. Maybe it was just me, but the setup was not a simple plug-and-play like the literature implies, at least for my conversion. Perhaps on a new install, all would work as advertised, but not for me. All that said, the Wi-Fi seems powerful and reaches much farther than my previous Netgear one. I was hoping this would reach the other side of my property, but alas, I am not able to, so I have ordered an Express to extend the network. I am sure the setup will go more smoothly with that, and I am also sure that reliability will be much better than the Netgear extenders that fail regularly and need to be reset.

Airport Extreme, 2013-11-05
By Marc 
I am using the Airport Extreme as a base station hub for back up drives for my computers. It also serves as the WIFI generator in my home. The unit works well and was easy to set up. The signal strength of the WIFI signal is not as strong as my original router so I may have to turn that back on to work certain items, like a bluRay player in the back bedroom. Other than that, the product has been great. The personnel in the store were great and very helpful.

Thanks

Excellent product, 2014-01-01
By GK 
Very stable and strong access point. Scalable in that I was easily able to extend the my existing wireless network. Only con is that it's a bit pricey but in this case you do get what you pay for.

Great WiFi, 2014-01-02
By Gary Burkhardt 
I got the Apple AirPort Extreme Base Station with 802.11ac Wi-Fi to replace an older AirPort Extreme and a Linksys router. It does the job of two routers and the W-Fi works great.

Airport Extreme, 2014-01-21
By NCG 
Very pleased with the router. I had upgraded the cable modem a few months ago with a much higher speed model, but it didn't seem to make much difference. I was using the an older Airport (about 6-7 years old). I decided to buy a new router, and since we're Mac users, I paid the 'Apple premium' and bought the Airport Extreme. In my case, connection speed suddenly became 4 or 5 times greater. So apparently, it wasn't the modem that was the bottleneck, it was the old router. Another benefit, is that I would typically have to unplug the old modem/router several times a week to reboot because my Mac devices could not connect to the internet. Since I've been using the new router, I have not had to reboot once.
