      Targeted signal

      Boasting six antennas, with three each for the 2.4 GHz and 5 Ghz bands, the AirPort Extreme gives you the best reach and coverage for your home.

      Instead of transmitting an even signal throughout the house, the AirPort seeks out wireless devices in the network and transmits a concentrated signal – for stronger, clear and improved WiFi.

      Easier sharing

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

      The AirPort Extreme can also be used a convenient wireless hub to share quickly and easily between users within the network. Ideal for projects between multiple users, the AirPort Extreme is a convenient way to save and share information.

      Safe surfing

      With built-in firewall and security features, the AirPort Extreme gives you reliable WiFi performance without putting your network at risk.

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

      Extremely (!) easy to setup - does most of it automatically. Looks good, blends nicely into the background. Excellent wifi penetration through most substrates.
      Would be nice if it had the audio output like Express so it could be used to allow Airplay to SONOS etc.

      Looks good and is sturdy
      Could be a bit simpler to set up although once you've done one they are easy.

      Reserve & Collect – reserve online for free and collect at a local store as soon as you like. Once reserved, your item’s held till closing time the next day, to be paid for when you collect.

      Pay & Collect – pay online, and have the item sent, for free, from our warehouse to a local store for you to collect. Starting on the date the item arrives in store – which you choose in checkout – you have 28 days to collect it.
