Pros & Cons
Apple AirPort Express is a sleek, compact and very versatile device that lets you extend an existing Wi-FI network’s range or create a new wireless network. It supports simultaneous dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi. That means it transmits at both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies at the same time. Many users use the AirPort Express to stream music and audiobooks using AirPlay. On the back of AirPort Express is a USB port that’s made for your printer. Just plug it in and instantly it’s like having a printer in every room.
AirPort Express includes a built-in firewall that creates a barrier between your network and the Internet, protecting your data from malicious attacks. With the guest networking feature, you can set up a separate Wi-Fi network just for guests. It is compatible with devices using the 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n specifications.
In a nutshell, Apple AirPort Express makes it very easy to set up and manage a secure home Wi-Fi network from your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac. You can create a network just for guests, stream music to any room in the house and print from any room in the house.
