new AirPort (Simultaneous Dual Band II)

I receive my latest AirPort Extreme Base Station today, it's the Simultaneous Dual Band II model (model A1354).

This is the a better focused photo. The brown box from Apple Store Australia.

Some of you may remember I already have an AirPort Extreme Base Station, it was the Gigabit Ethernet edition (with 802.11n draft), as well as a Time Capsule. Why do I need another base station?

Guest networkingDual bandWell, this model (released in October 2009) has simultaneous dual-band Wi-Fi (first introduced in March 2009) provides maximum range and compatibility, and it is the improved version based on Final N (802.11n) and improved internal antenna design for better performance. The Guest Networking is also a nice feature to have. Guest networking allows users to set up a separate Wi-Fi network with a separate password for visitors. Simply enable the new guest networking feature, and the guests can use the Internet but can�t access other parts of your private network, such as your computers, printers, and attached hard drives.

Until today, the in-house wireless network runs on 2.4GHz frequency band. This has been interfering with the cordless telephone. And I am on the way of switching to 5GHz frequency band. Also with the latest addition of AirPort Extreme Base Station, I can provide a better coverage for the Wi-Fi network.

Nerveless to say, besides working excellently with iMac, MacBook Pro, iPhone, iPod touch, it also works very well with Sony PlayStation 3, PSP, and Nintendo Wii very well.

Would now be a good time to mention that I've been able to host multiple wireless networks (like your Guest Networking feature) from my 6-year-old router running Linux?

i have a computer repair service and we bought one to try. I really like mine, and I have used it in a customers office, equipment rental with 6 users. Works perfectly, but I wonder if it is robust for them in the long run. I guess time will tell, but they are thrilled with the speed, and they have sales people who drop by. We set up the "guest" feature for them to use when they visit and the customer is thrilled because they do not have to accommodate someone else hooking into their network on these occasions.

This is exactly what I have been looking for. I do a lot of traveling and my laptop is my work partner.
Thanks for the tip.

This AirPort Extreme Base Station Dual Band II model really works like charm. Been using it, and so far so good. We're using it in our computers since we cater computer repair
services, i wonder if it's working well with game consoles.

Design is such a big part of Apple. For good or bad... Without that I don't think Jobs would have achieved a millionth of what he has. I wonder what would happen in a couple years from now :)
