Extremely fast.  Extremely powerful.  Extremely easy.

I am the original owner of this well cared for AirPort Extreme Base Station that lived its life in a non-smoking household.  There are two main differences between Apple and non-Apple hardware: stability and features.  Stability means you don't worry about it locking up, becoming unresponsive or simply ceasing to work until you unplug it.  While you may routinely have to make sure to keep a paperclip next to the other routers, the only time you should do a full reset on Apple AirPort equipment is when it's moved to a new location.  See features/specifications below.

You can own this great AirPort Extreme Base Station immediately at the low “Buy It Now” price.  Keep in mind, an AirPort Extreme Base Station costs $179 from Apple (other vendors will charge you even more).  If someone places a bid, the “Buy It Now” option disappears and it goes to auction.  [To guarantee you win this item, I recommend acting quickly and using the “Buy It Now” option now, it's a great value!]  Please note, if this item goes to auction, there is NO RESERVE on this item.  You have the power to determine the fair market value for this AirPort Extreme Base Station.
