About Apple AirPort Extreme Base

The intelligent, easy-to-use Apple AirPort Extreme Base Station with simultaneous dual-band support is the perfect wireless access point for home, school, or office. It offers next-generation 802.11ac Wi-Fi technology and delivers high-performance wireless access for Mac computers, PCs and Wi-Fi devices such as iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Apple TV.

With 802.11ac technology and a powerful beam forming antenna array, AirPort Extreme gives you up to 3x faster Wi-Fi and a stronger, clearer signal. And because it transmits at both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies at the same time, your wireless devices will automatically connect to the best available band for the fastest performance possible.

Apple AirPort Extreme Base Features

  • Designed with performance in mind: With the antennas at the top of the elevated design, AirPort Extreme now has a higher platform for dispersing the signal. It also increased the number of antennas. There are now six of them - three for the 2.4GHz band and three for the 5GHz band
  • Easy setup for iOS and OS X: Connect your DSL or cable modem to AirPort Extreme and use the built-in setup assistant to create your new wireless network in just a few taps from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
  • Share your hard drive or printer: AirPort Extreme can turn any external USB hard drive into a secure drive you can share across your Wi-Fi network
  • Compatibility and security: Any Wi-Fi device you have will work with AirPort Extreme. That's because it's compatible with devices using the 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11n and 802.11ac specifications

Shopper  does airport extreme work with Windows 8?
MARK M  I do not know specifically as I do not have a Win8 OS, but I would assume that it does. I run a Win7 VM on my Mac and my wife runs Win Vista on her laptop and both work fine.
