    So I had been using a crappy Net Gear router that I got for $19 a few months ago. It kept dropping off the connection, and I just couldn't deal with it anymore.

    Last night I bought an Airport Express, and I'm just wondering if I should return it and buy an Airport Extreme.

    Basically, I want to know: Will the Airport Extreme send out a faster signal than the Airport Express. Forgive me if this is a dumb question...

    The girl at the Apple store told me the speed would be the same as the Extreme, and I live in a small apartment and do not need the range of the extreme. Anybody have experience with this? Is the Express fast?

    Thank you! I ended up returning my Express and getting the Extreme, and the difference is quite significant!

    I find the internet to be MUCH faster on both my iMac and MacBook Pro with the Extreme.
