Apple wifi routers provide great coverage and stability. It is one of best wifi router for home use and office use. Wireless routers are built by Broadcom to Apple specs and quality standards.
With AirPort Extreme, getting your new Wi-Fi network up and running takes less time — and less effort — than making a cup of tea. That’s because a setup assistant is built into iOS and into AirPort Utility for OS X. As soon as you plug in your AirPort Extreme and connect it to your DSL or cable modem, you can follow the simple instructions on your Mac or iOS device. There are no complicated steps to follow and no obscure terminology to learn. The setup assistant does all the work, so you don’t have to.
AirPort Extreme features simultaneous dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi. That means it transmits at both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies at the same time. So no matter which band your wireless devices use, they’ll automatically connect to the best available band for the fastest possible performance.
1. Works fine
i have a BT hub/router. Problem was signal kept dropping out and coverage poor.
So, as a mac household, it seemed sensible to disable the wireless function on the bt router and connect an APE to disseminate the wifi signal. I have 3 kids & a spouse constantly on the home network. Dead easy to set up (including parental controls). The system works great, looks great (i hate those tacky looking things with antennae sticking up) & we've not looked back. thank you apple.

3. Solid Performance
Replaced a 5th Gen that still worked fine but wanted to add the additional band available with this unit. I run 4 extenders via 4 Airport Express and the transition to the new AirPort Extreme was flawless. I have used all sorts of routers in the past but once I moved to Apple AirPort Extreme life was grand!
I highly recommend this product to anyone who wants great coverage and stability. These devices are built by Broadcom to Apple specs and quality standards.

4. Impressive gain over previous generation
I updated to this version of Airport Extreme from the previous generation. It solved a lot of connectivity issues. My Apple TV and Tivo units are downstairs and on the opposite side of the house from the wifi transmitter. The speed bump and stability of connection improved so dramatically with this new unit that I can see movies, etc... instantly and flawlessly in HD. Areas that previously could not connect now connect and signal strength is better.

5. So FAST!!!
my old medialink was newer than the AirPort Extreme when I bought it. I finally started the transition to all apple about a year ago and the router is one of the last pieces to get swapped out. I had no idea how much faster, more stable and reliable a router could be! Using the same cable modem and ISP, my AirPort Extreme is 4 times faster than my medialink was. If I would have just spent the money then, I would have had a router that is still state of the art 2 years later instead of owning this medialink paperweight. Penny Wise Pound Foolish - spend the money now and own a router that'll hold up over time!!

A wireless router is a device that performs the functions of a router and also includes the functions of a wireless access point.
