If Apple is known for anything, it’s for elegant industrial designs. So it really comes as no surprise that Apple’s new AirPort Extreme Base Station with Gigabit Ethernet is probably the nicest looking wireless router on the market.
Although the product name is one of the longest ones on the market, it doesn’t completely describe the product’s capabilities. In addition to being a speedy router with gigabit LAN and WAN ports, the Extreme is a dual-band 802.11n Draft 2.0 wireless router. This draft specification, while not an IEEE ratified standard, is a stable draft and is the basis for the Wi-Fi Alliance’s latest certification program.
