Fast internet

Intelligent, easy to use and faster than ever before, the Apple AirPort Extreme Wireless Router lets you enjoy dual-band WiFi without being held back by buffering or lag.

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

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.

Get online easily

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 modem, to receive simple onscreen instructions that will get you connected in no time.

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.

Used this as a network in my office at the end of the garden via a Netgear plug in. The most stable and fastest network available especially for multiple hook ups!!
A little expensive but Design and performance outweigh, it just works.

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.
