Apple® computers, iPhones®, iPads® are all Apple® products. Built by Apple®. Supported by Apple®. Runs Apple® software. But did you know that Apple® also created other items to complement their hardware and software? Let’s take a look at some of the items that help you get on the internet at home. These certified pre-owned items can be found and purchased at Experimac Bend.
A router creates WiFi in your home. A modem brings the internet into the home, but without WiFi, you can not access it. This is where the router comes in.
Apple® built three types of routers. I get confused so here is my simple interpretation of these routers.
Airport Express: a lightweight router designed for small places, like apartments, small homes, or dorm rooms. It is a great extender for the Extreme.
Airport Extreme: More powerful/faster router, designed for larger areas and for more devices/ users to use.
Airport Time Capsule: Just like the Extreme, but with a built in hard drive with 2 TB or 3 TB storage capacity. This allows for a Time Machine backup. Backups are always a good thing.
This is a great article explaining things a little better. https://www.citymac.com/blog/2014/09/23/whats-the-difference-between-the-airport-express-extreme-and-time-capsule
