I bought this router to replace the BT Infinty Home Hub 3, which was terrible. Very easy to install and once setup I have found that my speed has increased, but best of all I now now stream my music library via Airplay all around the house. It does this with out any effort.

I bought this to replace an ASUS RT-N56U - 300Mbps Dual Band Wireless N Router. 802.11n, Hardware NAT, 5 Internal Antennas, Fast Gigabit Ethernet, Wireless HD content streaming, 3 Year Warranty which kept dropping wi-fi connections and gave erratic speeds. The second one of these I had in fact.

This brand-new Airport Extreme had just come out and I couldn't find too many reviews on it but what I could find seemed very favourable. It is also 802.11ac compliant which is no use to me at the moment but gives me some future-proofing when I upgrade my laptop in months to come. It's worth noting that it's a, b, g & n compliant too which means it will allow legacy hardware to connect with no problems.

The specs all seemed good:

It has a USB connection for an external hard-drive or printer. I'm using it for NAS and Time Machine backups. I'm a little puzzled why Apple stuck with USB 2.0 here instead of USB 3.0 - I assume they think their customers will generally only use this port for attaching a printer. A shame really, as having a USB 3.0 hard-drive attached would give a nice speed boost. Far from a deal-breaker though.

It has a dual-band transmitter which is crucial in crowded wi-fi suburbia. None of my neighbours operate on 5GHz which means I get a nice, clean signal.

It has 3 x Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports and 1 x Gigabit Ethernet WAN port. Mine is connected to a Gigabit switch via a LAN port as I'm operating it in bridging mode, letting the modem deal with DHCP and DNS.

Setup is typically Apple and very easy via Apple's Airport Utility.

With some trepidation ,I decided to upgrade from an earlier model.I was unsure that it would be worth the expense and hassle.however the transfer went very smoothly, the app on my mac detected the new model and offered to transfer the settings and it was no hassle. Performance wise I have seen a very noticeable speed increase an stronger signal throughout the house,I have a a couple of airport express for use with a humax and some speakers.the furthest one away from the unit used to drop out every now and again, but now it shows a strong signal. Overall I am very pleased I did upgrade.i use airplay a lot via Apple TV and the expresses and have seen improvements there too.

I'll keep this short: living in a reasonably sized semi-detached, with thick walls, I have a few wifi dead spots (and no chance of getting a signal in the garden!).

Originally, I bought an Airport Express to extend the existing network - this enabled me to get a reasonable signal in the garden, but there were still a few dead spots or areas that were unacceptably weak.

Having now returned the Express and reluctantly bought the Extreme, I've been able to eliminate all of these issue - Wifi strength is now acceptable throughout the house, so although it's more expensive than I would like for what I'm using it as (a glorified Wireless AP), it does do the job well.

Of note - when unpacking it, I'm glad that I had read an external review before ordering, noting that the reviewer had almost dropped the Airport when opening the box. I'd also warn that this is fairly easy to do - if I hadn't have read this beforehand, I could easily imagine that I would have done the same!

I read a lot of other people had trouble opening the box but still I dropped in on the floor. Fortunately it still works great but I'd suggest you sit down and do it on the sofa so it doesn't fall on anything hard if it slips.

A bit more expensive than other makes but as I have a mix of Apple and non-Apple devices this is only to be expected. Package a bit OTT. Easy to install and very reliable so far.

The BT home hub ("most reliable wifi in the country"), was dropping out all the time, requiring a restart of the hub. The hub now only provides the broadband (ADSL) connection and the airport provides wifi.

Easy to install and hasn't needed to be reset since I installed it a couple of months ago.

I bought this to replace an old D-Link router (DSL-G624M) that I had been using to extend my home wireless to my office in the house next door. The old router is able to do this, achieving a fairly stable connection but with a significant drop in signal strength and speed. I was hoping that the new AirPort Extreme would be an improvement in terms of speed, range and stability.

The AirPort is a router only, so if you want to use it to access the Internet you will need to connect it to a modem. In my case this is the router/modem supplied by my ISP, which I connected by Ethernet cable (not included) to the WAN port on the AirPort. I then connected one of the AirPort's LAN ports to my Mac Mini and switched the AirPort on. OSX recognised the router and launched the setup utility. (Note: You can also set up the AirPort wirelessly from a computer, or even from an iOS device.)

The setup process was quick and easy, a huge improvement on the headache of incomprehensible options that router installations usually involve. The AirPort utility creates two networks, a main one and an independent guest network. Both are dual band: 2.4GHz for your "legacy" equipment, and a 5GHz band that newer Macs can take advantage of.

My Mac Mini and iPad were then able to connect wirelessly to the AirPort, with good coverage throughout my (fairly small) house. Next door in my office, though, was another matter. My old MacBook could see the AirPort's networks and connect most of the time, but with slower speeds than I'd previously been getting and with some signal dropouts. My new iMac was worse, often losing sight of the networks, and sometimes refusing to connect at all.
