The all-new AirPort Express.

Simultaneous dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi. Incredibly easy setup from your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac or PC. An all-new design.

Easy setup.
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.

Manage your Wi-Fi network from your iOS device or Mac.

Once your network is set up, AirPort Utility for iOS and OS X lets you manage and monitor it from your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch or Mac. Your AirPort Express -- along with other AirPort base stations you have connected -- appears graphically onscreen, so you can see your settings at a glance, make changes, apply updates and more.

Simultaneous dual-band 802.11n support.
Get the fastest connection for each of your devices on 2.4GHz or 5GHz at the same time.

High-performance 802.11n in a double dose.
The new 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.

Extend an existing Wi-Fi network's range.
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.

Let your favourite artists play every room in the house, play iTunes music on your speakers. Wirelessly.

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.

Remote App
Control iTunes with your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch using the free Remote app. View the Remote app in the App Store.

Try AirPlay-enabled speakers.
AirPlay on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch lets you play your music wirelessly on any third-party AirPlay-enabled speaker. No cable or dock necessary.

Wireless printing.
Send to printer. From anywhere in your home. 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. And since AirPort Express works with Mac and PC, everyone in the house can take advantage of one centrally available printer. Wirelessly, of course.*

Compatibility and security, a safer online experience for all.
AirPort Express includes a built-in firewall that creates a barrier between your network and the Internet, protecting your data from malicious Internet attacks. When you set up AirPort Express, the firewall is automatically turned on, so you don't have to do a thing. Except enjoy the web with peace of mind.

Put out the Wi-Fi welcome mat for guests.
With the guest networking feature, you can set up a separate Wi-Fi network just for guests. Use a different password or no password at all. A guest network only allows access to the Internet, so your primary network, including your printer and any LAN-attached devices, remains secure.

Connect to Wi-Fi from any device.
Mac, PC, iPhone, iPad and any other Wi-Fi device you have. They all work with AirPort Express. That's because AirPort Express is compatible with devices using the 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g and 802.11n specifications.

Go the wired route if you want.
AirPort Express includes a 10/100BASE-T Ethernet LAN port for fast wired connectivity with a desktop computer, network drive, DVR or other device. And if you need more than one port, just connect an Ethernet hub.
