||IEEE 802.11b, 802.11g
||Wireless Internet access requires a wireless-enabled computer, a base station or other access point and Internet access (fees may apply). Some ISPs are not currently compatible with AirPort Extreme.
AirPort Extreme uses the 802.11g wireless standard. Accessing the wireless network requires an AirPort or AirPort Extreme enabled computer or Wi-Fi-certified 802.11b or 802.11g computer. Achieving data rates of 54 Mbps requires that all users have an AirPort Extreme or Wi-Fi-certified 802.11g enabled computer and connect to an AirPort Extreme Base Station. If a user of a Wi-Fi-certified 802.11b product joins the network, that user will get up to 11 Mbps and AirPort Extreme and Wi-Fi-certified 802.11g users will get less than 54 Mbps. Actual speed will vary based on range, connection rate, site conditions, size of network, and other factors.
AirPort Extreme can extend the range only of an AirPort Extreme or AirPort Express wireless network.
Wireless printing over USB requires Mac OS X v10.2.7 or later or Windows XP or Windows 2000 and a compatible printer. USB cable required to connect the AirPort Extreme Base Station to a USB printer sold separately.
Support for WPA requires Mac OS X Panther 10.3. Use of Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) reduces the maximum number of network users.
Cables required to connect the AirPort Extreme Base Station to a DSL or cable modem, Ethernet or a phone jack are sold separately.
