In about 5 minutes I had configured it to extend the already existing wifi network from my Airport Extreme, and it does the job quite well! We also have it connected to our outdoor music and find streaming from iTunes to our patio an amazing bonus feature.
If you're thinking of buying this for a main router, go for it! Airport products are incredibly reliable, I rarely reboot mine, they're easily configured, even on a Windows computer. You don't need it's bigger brother the Airport Extreme to make this work, and for a small office or apartment it's fantastic. The USB printer sharing feature is a lifesaver on our main Airport Extreme and exists on this as well.
The setup was quite easy, plugged it in to the main apple router, used air utility and it read right away and automatically configured. Simple.
To get this to work, simply plug this in to your router, install the utility software that is included in the disc and follow directions. Set up for this also took a few minutes.
This thing does its job as promised. Used quite a few of these and i have my old LCD TV connected via Ethernet cable in my den where there were no cable wires downstairs and also connected my laser printer in my living room so I can access my printer anytime without having to go downstairs to my office to retrieve my print out. The signal is strong, the speed is excellent and if you need something to physically extend the distance of your wireless router, this is the one.
I bought each new router hoping for more distance and strength, using indoor antennas and various WiFi adapters. The last one was the Apple airport Extreme. Well, it was the same as all the rest except you cant put an external antenna on it...so enter Apple Airport Express, the little Network Extender.
I have an HP desktop with win7 and had no trouble hooking up the Extreme, but when I tried to hook the Express to the Extreme, I had several issues and one was the Extreme did not recognize the Express. I wrestled all day and just as I was about to package it back up and return it, I tried one last time.
This time after reading reviews I reset the Express 2 times in a row, I don't know what that does, but suddenly it started to ask the right questions on start up and I finally got my network extended.
I gave it 4 stars because of the work I had to put into the set-up, perhaps it's much easier if you have a MAC, I know some readers will say it was operator error, and that could be, but what ever the case, it now works and works very well, I was considering buying one for upstairs also, but since I installed a new ALPHA long range USB adapter with external antenna things are much better for my desktop.
I would recommend this product.
Only one problem: There's a 2 second delay for most sound. Not a big issue for streaming music, but for video (i.e. Youtube, Movie's, etc), its basically unusable. *Some* programs stay in sync - quicktime for example. Additionally, some 3rd party apps can solve *some* of the video issues. Airfoil is one example (*note*, I have not personally used or tested airfoil), but here is an excerpt from their site:
"If you watch video and transmit the audio with Airfoil, you will notice a distinct delay between the local on-screen video and the remote audio playback. This delay between local and remote playback is inherent to the AirPlay (formerly AirTunes) protocol used by the AirPort Express and Apple TV, and can not be removed. Audio received by these devices is always buffered and held for approximately 2 seconds before being played back. The end result is that if you use Airfoil with most video players, the local video plays about two seconds ahead of remote audio."
My main purpose in purchasing this was to stream audio without having to use an audio cable from my laptop. Maybe this expectation is unreasonable, but its shared by more than myself, so I think its worth posting in a review.
