Great for boosting Wi-Fi signal and for Air Play The Airport Express, much like most Apple devices, is amazingly simple to set up and is up and running in no time. I have this connected to extend the wi-fi network off the Time Capsule that is essentially the main router for the network. Quick set up procedure and review:FORM FACTOR – the device looks sleek and is probably exactly the same size as Apple TV. Doesn’t take up much space. It comes with a power cord that needs to be attached, unlike the previous generation AE which had the power outlet prongs built in. The addition of the power cord somewhat reduces options in terms of where the device can be placed in the house. If you don’t mind the cable showing, you can place it anywhere in the house. But if you want to install this say in the living room where cables would look unpleasant, you’re better off installing it somewhere else in the house (or behind furniture where it can’t be seen). Not a major issue but one worth mentioning.SET UP – I had this…

With it connected to your router, install Airport Utility for Windows on your Windows PC. On a Mac, the Airport Utility should automatically launch when your Mac detects the Airport Express on your network. If Airport Utility doesn’t automatically launch from your Mac, search for it from the search bar (top right of OS…
