    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.

        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.

            Great Price. Quick Delivery. Super easy to replace old AirPort Extreme Base Station. Old unit has worked flawlessly for over 5 years. Only reason to replace the old unit was to have higher speed available.

                Faster internet than before. Really easy setup - plays really well with Apple iPhones and iPad. Great signal strength around the area, and works great with Apple Express to extend coverage to far away places.

                    Can't really compare speed and power since I haven't done tests with other routers. But in our home network we got a boost in wi-fi range and speed. Set-up was a breeze. So far, the connections are stable. So, we're happy.
