Apple Airport Extreme Base Station, ME918B/A 5 5 3 3
Apple Airport Extreme Base Station, ME918B/A What a piece of kit, open the box, plug it in, follow the instructions and your done. Well worth the money. 16 September 2014
Great for boosting wifi signal around the home Originally purchased this as my wifi router wasn't powerful enough to provide coverage across my old thick wall home, now things have changed as I even get signal on the third floor as well as in the garden. The setting of of the network is easy and I like the functionality of guests to the home being able to use the wifi without a password without penetrating the network whilst keeping it secure 09 September 2014
Excellent wireless signal Replaced an older Apple Time Capsule and has hugely improved the WiFi reception in our house - previous deadspots now work perfectly! Very easy to set up. 12 November 2013
