Product information
Intelligent, easy to use and faster than ever before, the Apple AirPort Extreme Dual-Band Wireless Router brings you a new way to enjoy wireless internet connectivity.


Using the fastest, most reliable WiFi standards, the AirPort Extreme lets you browse download and upload at a blistering rate.

Utilising 802.11ac WiFi that operates at up to 3 times faster than a conventional connection, the AirPort Extreme revolutionises home networking.

Whether you are streaming music or movies, downloading large files or just browsing, the AirPort will speed things up and keep you working away without disruption.

Targeted signal for better performance

Boasting six antennas, with three each for 2.4 GHz and 5 Ghz bands, the AirPort Extreme is always ready for action.

All six antennas are positioned at the top of the 168 mm high unit which gives you the best reach and coverage for your home.

Instead of transmitting an even signal throughout the house, effectively sending a signal to empty rooms, the new and improved AirPort seeks out 802.11ac devices in the network.

Focussing on these devices and transmitting a concentrated signal gives you WiFi that is stronger, clearer and faster for improved internet efficiency.

Get online

Spend less time and effort setting your network up with the intuitive iOS set-up assistant.

Simply plug in your AirPort extreme and connect your DSL or cable modem to receive simple onscreen instructions that will get you connected in no time.

Easier sharing

Print, save and share with the AirPort Extreme.

Connect your printer or external hard drive to the AirPort Extreme to access and archive documents without the need for wires.

Use the AirPort Extreme as a convenient central wireless hub to share quickly and easily between Mac and PC users within the network.

Ideal for shared projects between multiple users or even for backing up files without getting out of your seat, the AirPort Extreme is a convenient way to process and share information within your network.

Safe surfing

Stay safe with the AirPort Extreme and it's built in firewall and security features that give you high performance without putting your network at risk.

Create guest networks that have access to the internet without being able to access your harddrive or printer for a securer way to browse.

Compatible with a wide range of wireless enabled devices and even featuring three Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports for rapid wired connections, the Apple AirPort Extreme Dual-Band Router will be a fantastic addition to your home network.

Very easy to extend the wireless network by using an Apple Airport Express. The Express is recognised by the Extreme automatically, you can add as many Expresses as you like to grow the network, and the login details are the same.
Not cheap, given it has no built in modem, and not especially powerful for the price.
