Ah jeez, what can I say. I can do most anything with a computer, Apple or PC, but when I try to configure a network, gremlins keep any of it from working. When my Netgear "lost its settings" spontaneously, they were kind enough at technical support to offer to fix it for me for 99 bucks. When I declined they offered up that I might go to their website for support tips. But I had spent too many hours when I first bought that router, I was done. So I purchased this router and it is just like other reviewers have said: plug it in, stick in the disk, answer a few simple questions, and it's done. THIS is how consumers LIKE computers to work. Bemoan the higher price tag if you want, but I will pay a little extra for things that just do their dang job and don't aggravate me NEEDLESLY!

This review is going to mention a number of products--because a wireless network is all about infrastructure and integration. I purchased the AirPort Extreme to pull a number of other devices together, so I hope shoppers considering it will find this kind of review useful.

Since 2001 I have used the original AirPort (graphite), the AirPort Extreme (2003) with modem, and a host of Netgear and Linksys wireless routers to set up 802.11x networks at work and at home. The latter work well in their applications, and this review is not intended to knock any of them.

But at home, I'm not a masochist. I want my networking system to work with my gear, and I don't want to spend hours setting it up and more hours dealing with changes to my system.

When we replaced our home theater system after an equipment meltdown (thankfully insured), I wanted to add a Logitech Squeezebox to the receiver, streaming music from a ReadyNAS Duo. The problem was that the older AirPort Extreme was in our office at one end of the house, and didn't have the range to reach the family room where the Squeezebox receiver is located.

Purchased from a military exchange.


Management Utility requires a downstream computer running a recent version of Windows or OSX.

-No integrated web server for modifying device settings (must use AirPort Utility)
-Manual Setup option includes all of the necessary tools to secure your network
-Integration of External Hard Drives via integrated USB Port is SUPER easy (just plug it in)
-Supports USB Hubs for more drives/printer sharing (I haven't tried this)
-Supports Full US 101 Keyboard Character Set in Passwords/Pass Phrases
-Works great in a "Double NAT" network environment

-Only three integrated "downstream" ethernet ports
-Only one status light for system health


I purchased this router to better secure my mixed-platform network and aid our family's transition from WinXP to Mac. I ran the initial setup from a "Wired" PC and went immediately to the Manual Setup. Transition of all of my network devices from my older subnet to the new subnet was painless once I got over my own boneheaded mistakes. Throughput on the wireless side of my home network was increased significantly (as advertised) vs. my older Linksys Router. I've retained the older subnet to support some WiFi devices that can't support the latest security protocols. Despite the Armageddon like proclamations about "Double NAT-ing" I've experienced absolutely no problems with our internet enabled devices accessing the internet.

For me this was mostly painless, but there are some limitations worth noting.

When I recently decided to upgrade to a router supporting a-band I shopped the Apple and Cisco choices. I chose this one because I have mostly Apple equipment. While I have been happy with their computers I consider their routers a moderate struggle to configure. Also the settings are a bit more cryptic (nonstandard) than Cisco's. Nevertheless I wanted the following advantages of this AirPort Extreme
1. Extending the range with Apple's WDS relay and remote options
2. Using iTunes over the AirPort
3. Mounting a drive on the base station (comparably priced Linksys routers don't offer this).

So I went with the AirPort and it satisfies my needs. The a band works fine and the new software / firmware is an incremental improvement over my previous AirPort base stations.

On the bad side I wish configuration were more straightforward. Apple's documentation is sparse and the settings options are, in some cases, not standard. For instance the "multicast rate" selection has low, medium, and high, rather than explicit rates. Some blog searching can tell you how to use the AirPort, but Apple should offer better support.

Also I have not been able to extend the WDS network. My few attempts have failed. I am sure if I dug through more blogs I could get it to work (as I have in the past). But I have established that it is not always easy to do (as some blogs confirm).

Overall I recommend this product. It does what I need, working as a single base station including the a band. I would say it is at a decent price point compared to Cisco and others. As with anything Apple it is no bargain next to the bottom of the line competitors, but feature-per-feature is priced pretty well.
