Now whole-house networking of all your Apple devices is available with the Apple AirPort Express Base Station. This simple but powerful network device can perform a variety of tasks - from wirelessly controlling your printer, to extending an existing Wi-Fi network's range, to listening to your music library from any speaker in the house.

Like most Apple products, the interface is simple yet elegant. Setting up your wireless network is so easy your kids could teach you to do it. Simply go to Wi-Fi settings, tap your network, give it a password, and you're done. It's that easy. Once you're on, you can manage your network from your iOS device or Mac computer. You can see settings at a glance, make changes, and apply updates.

The AirPort Express also features dual-band 802.11n and Wi-Fi support. This means it transmits at the two frequencies you will most likely use - 2.4GHz, which devices like the iPhone utilizes, and 5GHz, most commonly used by devices like the iPad and Mac. It is also compatible with older setups that use 802.11a/b/g.

But the AirPort Express isn't done showing off. You can also attach a printer to the USB port on the back of the unit and wirelessly control all print functions from anywhere in the house.

Security conscious users will appreciate the built in firewall, and the ability to set up separate Wi-Fi networks just for guests, leaving your data safe and secure.

Looking for a simple, one-stop solution for all your network needs? Look no further than the Mac AirPort Express. Its ease of use and networking power make it the right choice for Apple users.

Dual Band 802.11n and Wi-Fi
The two most commonly used frequencies can be accessed from the same unit - 2.4GHz for your iPhone, and 5Ghz for your iPad.
Easy Setup and Administration
Setup is a snap - or a tap - and administration can be done through your iPhone or iPad (or Mac). Everything is connected through a seamless interface.
Plays iTunes on Any Speaker
Stream your music library through any set of speakers in the house - using an audio cable sold separately. After attaching the Airport Express Base Station, you can then use iTunes on your computer or your iOS device, and choose which speakers you want your music to play on.
Printing Power
Set up a printer through the USB port, and then print from anywhere in the house. Stop looking for cables and connections with this wireless print device.

    I still have the original Airport express and it's chugging away nicely. I moved into a new apartment with very bad wave propagation so I got this extend the range. I use a 3GB time capsule (also a very cool router) as my main router. The elegance of an Apple product is hard to deny. I plugged in this router. Launched the airport utility. It automatically sensed a new airport. It asked me if I wanted to create a new network or if I wanted to extend my existing (something sadly the old airport express doesn't do) et voila! It was connected to my existing network in about 2 minutes. So headache free!

    A couple of selling points over the old version. You can now extend an existing network rather than just join. It supports 2.3 and 5ghz simultaneously.

    I originally purchased an time capsule because I like that the backup capabilities (although I wish Apple would let you set the interval for backups, I don't need to backup continuously). Additionally, I needed more than a single ethernet port for 2 network printers and an NAS. If all I had was a single computer and a single printer this would have been my first choice.

    Now I just use my old unit to stream iTunes to my big stereo, or when I travel.

    All in all a great product. I purchased from B&H because unlike some other online retailers, they ship really fast, even if it's free shipping and their customer service if you ever have an issue is bar none the best.

    I bought this to use as the link between my LS9 mixer and the iPad app. Both Apple and Yamaha make you think its an easy plug and play. 4 hours later with a networking guru who attends our church we were up and running. Once it was up it's been rock solid and penetrates the wall between the auditorium and the production room pretty good.

      Comments about Apple Airport Express Base Station:

      Just bought the current model of Airport Express to replace a v1 model that is no longer supported. The update has the same functionality as the original:

      -Wireless router
      -Wireless streaming from iTunes with audio out
      -Wireless printing

      I personally only use it for the first two functions, but find it to be a very satisfying solution for both purposes.

      On the old version I noticed occasional interference in my audio. So far I have not found that to be the case on the newer version.

      Comments about Apple Airport Express Base Station:

      This item is very simple for how much it cost. I mainly use it for wireless print on a laser printer that doesn't do wireless print and for that purpose it does it well. Set up is not as simple as it could be, but not hard. once set up it works well and didn't give me hiccups. I switched my router and that took me a little time to figure out how to trouble shoot it. I think its app could be simpler by making things clear to where to click. I mean one of the spot to click to trouble shoot is the amber light of a picture, really??? I shouldn't be complaining as it worked as it should be and of course apple does well with looks. It's small, nothing sticks out, looks elegant, no antennas, normal color etc.

                  I have an older Mac Mini loaded with music and playlists. It runs continuously but elsewhere in the house I have a receiver, a radio with a Aux input and a set of powered speaker each with its own Airport express. Music comes from either the playlist or iTunes radio or Amazon cloud all distributed using Airplay. It could easily be Pandora. Along the way every part of the house has a strong WiFi signal. The arrangement is quite versatile and much less expensive than Sonos. Currently running holiday music but on December 26 it will change to smooth jazz.

                    I use this for my personal use in my office. I am currently using this with my DSL service. It took me literally 10 minutes from start to finish to set it up using my new Mac Mini 2014. The Mac senses the Router, asks you you service ID and password, and you are up and running. Probably the easiest wireless router I have ever setup.Only one wish, is that it was the new AC standard. Even though it is not, it runs circle around my old wireless router.

                      I started noticing some wifi signal drop-off towards one end of our house. I blame the density of our neighborhood and the number of competing wireless networks. At first, I purchased one fo the newer AirPort Extremes and used my existing Time Capsule to extend the network. It worked, but I couldn't help but think that I was spending more money that I had to. So, I purchased the Express to extend my original Time Capsule network. The result? No more wireless network issues in my house. I was able to return the $ Extreme thanks to this incredible little piece of hardware.

                            Great Product. I am surprised why I waited so long to purchase Apple router when I use ALL Apple products.

                            Used to upload files within a studio environment.

                            If you are close enough to station it works perfectly.

                            The station does not function through our walls and is not very useful.
