Apple Refurbished AirPort Extreme Base Station
Thanks Neilium
The perfect wireless solution for home, school and small business.
Networking icon
Easy wireless networking.

Connect your DSL or cable modem to the AirPort Extreme Base Station, then quickly set it up with the easy-to-use AirPort Utility, which is available as download for both Mac OS X and Windows. In minutes, you and up to 50 others can use your Mac computers or PCs to surf the web, stream video, share photos and more — without wires.1
Dual Band icon
Simultaneous dual-band Wi-Fi.

For maximum range and compatibility, AirPort Extreme works simultaneously on both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, allowing all the devices on the network to use the most efficient band automatically. It uses the latest 802.11n wireless technology, so you can enjoy up to five times the Wi-Fi performance and up to twice the range of 802.11g wireless networks.2
Guest Networking icon
Guest networking.

Set up a separate Wi-Fi network with a separate password for your visitors. Simply enable the guest networking feature, and your guests can use the Internet but can’t access other parts of your private network, such as your computers, printers and attached hard drives.
Printer icon
Print without wires.

Have several computers in your home or office but only one printer? No problem. Just connect a compatible printer to the USB port on the AirPort Extreme Base Station, and the printer instantly becomes available to all the computers (Mac and PC) on your wireless or wired network. (See system requirements.)
Drive Sharing icon
Share your hard drive.

You can share an external USB hard drive over your wireless and wired networks by simply connecting it to the USB port on your AirPort Extreme Base Station. Called AirPort Disk, this feature is perfect for sharing files and more.
Security icon
Strong security and access controls.

Rest easy — AirPort Extreme takes strong measures to prevent unauthorized intrusion into your wireless network. It offers a built-in firewall and supports industry-standard encryption technologies including WPA/WPA2 and 128-bit WEP. Yet it’s still easy for authorized users to connect to the base station, thanks to its simple set-up utility and powerful access controls.
Works with iPhone, Apple TV and more icon
Works with iPad, iPhone, Apple TV, and more.

AirPort Extreme works with Mac computers, PCs, iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Apple TV and virtually all 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi wireless devices — all at the same time.

Just a note that this is the prior model version...does not have 802.11ac.

This base station does not play nice in our mostly PC household.
We abandoned this base station and Airport express after a frustrating 2 years of repeated malfunctions.

I bought one of these a year ago on a BB open box deal for $99, and it's worked perfectly. Good dual-band router, much better than my Netgear WNDR3700 was, especially on 5 GHz.

The range is not as good as the new Airport Extreme for wireless N. If you have a house, you will need the new one. If you are looking forward for saving money, get the ASUS 802.11ac router. Another thing I did not like about Apple is you have to configure with Apple product. I ended up selling all my Apple Products and moved to Nexus. Not sure how I can configure it.

Good deal Green for you OP

Anybody know if the 'air disk' feature (connecting external hard drive to USB port) supports Time Machine?

I had this before I upgraded to the the newest version of the Airport. I had it hooked up to PC's and Macs in my household. No Problem whatsoever. It's pretty reliable and easy to set up.
