  • Print wirelessly from any room

By employing simultaneous dual-band 802.11n wireless support, this Apple AirPort Express base station ensures that you’ll always get the fastest downloads possible and no lag or interruptions while you stream content. The device uses both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands to find the best path with the least interference. Use your Apple AirPort Express base station to connect wireless-capable devices, such as speakers and printers, to your computer or to other devices in the office. This lets you play music from the same device in multiple rooms or print from anywhere using a printer in a central location. With the Apple AirPort Express base station, you can set up guest networks to allow visitors to use the Internet without giving them access to other wireless devices in the office.
