Overview
  • 1Description

The AirPort Extreme Base Station from Apple is a compact device that combines the functions of a Cable/DSL router, wireless access point, USB print server and USB storage server into one compact device. The router allows you to share your Internet connection between several computers via the draft 802.11n wireless protocol. It also features three standard 10/100/1000 Mbps RJ-45 Gigabit Ethernet ports. The router is also fully backwards compatible with legacy 802.11a/b/g devices.

The router also features a firewall to protect you from malicious software that can attack your computer from the Internet, as well as wireless security to insure that your data remains private. It includes configuration software for both Mac OS X and Windows, making it a truly cross-platform solution.

Wired and Wireless Connections
In addition to providing wireless capabilities, the router has three standard 10/100/1000 Mbps RJ-45 Gigabit Ethernet ports to allow you to connect computers and devices that do not have a wireless card installed. This gives you the ability to simply plug in your desktop computer to the router while accessing your network wirelessly via your laptop.
Firewall and Network Security
The router features a powerful firewall to help protect your computer against malicious attacks that often target computers connected to the Internet. Additionally the router features network security to protect your data as it is transmitted wirelessly, ensuring that outsiders can't access your private data.
Wi-Fi Compatibility
The router can transmit data on both the 2.4 and 5.4 GHz bands. This allows you to use it with networks that use the draft 802.11n standard as well as legacy 802.11b, 802.11g and 802.11a wireless networks.
USB Port for File and Printer Sharing
The AirPort Extreme features a USB port for file or printer sharing. You'll be able to connect a USB printer to the router, allowing computers in your network to print to it at any time. Alternatively, you can opt to connect a USB 2.0 hard drive for file sharing among network computers.
