I bought 5 of these during Thanksgiving sale from BB. They were all in white boxes and 5th generation. I sold tthree to friends and have the other two extending my home network from a time capsule I had purchased earlier. They all work perfectly and stable (never need reboots like my old netgear and linksys). The extremes hand off the wireless access seamlessly as you move through the house so you have excellent signal from anywhere. I have them wired with GB lan between the routers and then the wireless access points serve the clients depending on which part of home you are in. I highly recommend these units. The ones I received looked brand new and worked perfect.
Sweet. I am going to do a similar thing. Did you use WMS or just same network name and settings but different channels?
still funny when its in the title it gets +18 while 1400 views on the other gets a -1.... it's not buried so far you couldn't read it in less than 10 seconds... or maybe its just that it needed a salesman.... idk
Yeah but no one clicks on every deal to see if there is another deal inside that is totally unrelated to the deal in the title. In this case an AEBS deal inside a BluRay movie deal titled thread.
Plus who says the -1 wasn't because of the other deals in that thread?
Oh so I thought a 'refurb' always meant that it came from the manufacture so really Best Buy would just be the reseller. How is Best Buy qualified to do a refurb? Do they just have one of the Geek Squads plug it in and see if the light it lit??
If thats the case then yes, I would be more skeptical buying something like this from anyone but Apple.
Best Buy is not Apple certified for router repairs. That's why they are supposed to void the warranties before reselling them.
Local Best Buy branches will accept the returns, at which point someone checks to see if all the parts are in the box, then they ship it back to a warehouse. It's checked again to see if it powers on, then repackaged, and sold.
Quality control or product testing does not factor into this at any point. Therefore, even though the webpage may call it "Refurbished", they qualify it with details explaining that it is "As Is" and sold without warranty.
this is cheaper than the refurb airport EXPRESS that i bought from apple (officially refurbed by Apple)
i'm tempted to return Express back to Apple store... and then just order this EXTREME from Bestbuy. But reading the reviews on the site scare me...
Ugh, all caps means "pay attention to this" right?

Please excuse my ignorance as hardware is more my up my alley than networking, but if i plug my older hp LaserJet 1200 into the Airport, I will be able to print from all the other computers networked in my house, including my ipad, and iphones? I can not get my win7 computers that are wirelessly connected to print. It prints fine on my XP computer it is tethered into, but the three other laptops will not wirelessly print. Everything worked fine with the hp 6300 i had hooked up. Even if I manually install a driver, i cant get the win7 computers to find the printer on the network. I can’t seem to find out if the 1200 is compatible or not, or how difficult this is…thanks in advance.
