    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.

        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.

                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.
