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.

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.
