As a retired Broadcast Engineer and I.T. person, I have set up numerous wifi & wired networks over the years using many brands of equipment. The Apple AirPort Extreme has got to be, without exception, the easiest and quickest wireless access point to set up. For novices, you should have no problems at all. For the rest of us, many more advanced options would be nice, but I knew what to expect. The transmit signal is very good but inferior to the commercial brands. For say a 3000 sq foot house or business this unit will serve the wifi users quite well. Be sure and download the app that allows you to tweak the available settings.

ABT had the BEST price. What I especially like about them, they ship THE DAY YOU ORDER IT!

To be fair our uverse didn't connect with our front room well. But, 2 Abt salesmen recommended this as a cure all your troubles product. Still can't get a reliable signal in front room. Otherwise, it's fine & looks cool.

          Comments about The All-New AirPort Extreme Base Station:

          The first unit I received was DOA (which is the first time I have ever had that with an apple product). Interactions with Abt were fabulous and I got the replacement unit and return instructions quickly. The second unit booted as normal, set-up was a breeze and I used my older time-capsule to extend my WiFi network. Wins across the board and I am very satisfied.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Delivery was great on both occasions, as was the return.

            Very easy to set up, we have an ipad, 2 iphone's, 2 apple tv's, and a macbook pro. It's nice that they all work together, still works with my husband's PC without any problems. It has an app to do any updates for your router from, apple couldn't make this any easier to own.

                    We upgraded from the Airport Extreme router we purchased new in 2010, and were very happy about the new upgrades. We have Apple/Mac for all of our electronics and the new router was very easy for a technologically challenged senior citizen to install.
