Go from out of the box to online, fast.
Set up your Wi-Fi network using your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac or PC.
With AirPort Express, getting your new Wi-Fi network up and running takes less time — and less effort — than making a cup of coffee. That’s because a setup assistant is built into iOS and in AirPort Utility for OS X. And if you use a Windows PC, you can download AirPort Utility for free. As soon as you plug in your AirPort Express Base Station and connect it to your DSL or cable modem, you can follow the simple instructions on your computer 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.
Simultaneous dual-band 802.11n support.
Get the fastest connection for each of your devices.
Devices like iPhone 4S and previous models use the 2.4GHz wireless band.
Other devices, like iPhone 5, iPad or the Mac, can use either the 2.4GHz or 5GHz wireless band.
The AirPort Express supports simultaneous dual-band 802.11n 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.
High-performance 802.11n in a double dose.
If you already have a wireless network in your home and want to extend its range, AirPort Express can help. Just place it in range of your primary base station — an AirPort Extreme, Time Capsule or another AirPort Express — and near the area where you want your wireless connection. Launch the easy-to-use AirPort Utility app on your iOS device or Mac, and you’re mere minutes away from long-range Wi-Fi enjoyment.
Extend an existing Wi-Fi network’s range.
Let your favourite artists play every room in the house.
AirPlay takes the music from the iTunes library on your computer, iPhone, iPad or iPod touch and sends it wirelessly to any stereo or speakers in your home. Simply connect your speakers to AirPort Express using an audio cable (sold separately). Then, using iTunes on your computer or the Music app on your iOS device, choose which speakers you want your music to play on. If you have more than one AirPort Express connected to speakers, you can play the same music from iTunes on your Mac or PC on all your speakers at the same time. Already have a Wi-Fi network in place? Use AirPort Express to add music streaming to its capabilities and create a whole-house musical experience.
Play iTunes music on your speakers. Wirelessly.
