Product Details

Apple AirPort Extreme Base Station, Model MC340LLA

The sleek, easy-to-use AirPort Extreme Base Station with simultaneous dual-band support is the perfect wireless access point for home, school, or small business. It offers fast, 802.11n Wi-Fi access for Mac computers, PCs, and Wi-Fi devices such as iPhone, iPod touch, and Apple TV.

Features:

  • Easy wireless networking
    Connect your DSL or cable modem to the AirPort Extreme Base Station, then quickly set it up with the easy-to-use AirPort Utility, which is included for both Mac OS X and Windows. In minutes, you and up to 50 others can use your Mac computers or PCs to surf the web, stream video, share photos, and more — without wires
  • Simultaneous dual-band Wi-Fi
    For maximum range and compatibility, AirPort Extreme works simultaneously on both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, allowing all the devices on the network to use the most efficient band automatically. It uses the latest 802.11n wireless technology, so you can enjoy up to five times the Wi-Fi performance and up to twice the range of 802.11g wireless networks.2 And improvements in antenna design give you up to 50 percent better performance and up to 25 percent better range than with the previous-generation AirPort Extreme Base Station
  • Guest networking
    Set up a separate Wi-Fi network with a separate password for your visitors. Simply enable the guest networking feature, and your guests can use the Internet but can’t access other parts of your private network, such as your computers, printers, and attached hard drives.
  • Print without wires
    Have several computers in your home or office but only one printer? No problem. Just connect a compatible printer to the USB port on the AirPort Extreme Base Station, and the printer instantly becomes available to all the computers (Mac and PC) on your wireless or wired network. (See system requirements.)
  • Share your hard drive
    You can share an external USB hard drive over your wireless and wired networks by simply connecting it to the USB port on your AirPort Extreme Base Station. Called AirPort Disk, this feature is perfect for sharing files and more. If you’re a MobileMe member using a Mac with Mac OS X Leopard or Snow Leopard, you can even access the files on the drive over the Internet
  • Strong security and access controls
    Rest easy — AirPort Extreme takes strong measures to prevent unauthorized intrusion into your wireless network. It offers a built-in firewall and supports industry-standard encryption technologies including WPA/WPA2 and 128-bit WEP. Yet it’s still easy for authorized users to connect to the base station, thanks to its simple setup utility and powerful access controls

        This was SO much simpler to set up as compared to the Linksys. I needed to call support with the old Linksys and ended up talking to about 10 different reps in India or the Phillipines.

        With Apple, you can always get support from the Apple Store genius!

        The guest network is fantastic!

        BETTER THAN THE D-LINK 665

          Comments about Apple AirPort Extreme Base Station:

          We originally bought the D-link 665 and the connection to a MacBook Pro (N NETWORK capable) was poor. We have a 2 story house - Connection was totally unreliable downstairs and upstairs, we were getting connection speeds of 30-54 mbs despite almost a clear line of sight (distance of about 50-75 ft.). The Airport Extreme fixed that - connections are fast, even downstairs, and we get signal all over the house. It's main drawback is the price- if it were cheaper, the choice would be a no-brainer. If it lasts, I guess it will be worth it over the long run.
