Workable but Ripe for a Redesign
This app allows interfacing with the AirPort, which is helpful. However, the interface is not especially intuitive and this really shows up in the design/setup for limiting wifi access. I want to program in when my kid can't get wifi on their phone and laptop. This is possible but awkward, requiring many clicks. Once one gets to the point of programming the access restriction, it is actually a bit confusing whether one is delineating times wifi is allowed or not allowed. Also, it is set on a 24 hour day, so there is not one easy way to say no wifi all night, starting at 10pm on one day and going till 7am the next. One must program 10p-11:59 then 12am to 7am on a separate "restriction." Some better, more visually intuitive examples of setting up access restrictions and permissions exist in other areas -- this piece needs work. I also would like to be able to have a quick way to force wifi off for my kid's tech quickly and easily, like "stop access now and for the next x hours, just this one time" or similar. This app does not provide anything even close that sort of immediacy. Finally, when we are using access restrictions for one or two devices, it somehow seems to gum up the works for every other device in the house as well.
Excellent information, but you have to dig a little
This utility has a no-nonsense interface. The only graphics are the startup screen that show icons of all the nodes on the network and their connections. Clicking on any node brings up basic, but important info for that node. Touching Wireless Clients brings up the MAC address of any connected machine. Touching any address brings up the helpful info you need to dig for: Connection data. This app shows the Connection quality, Data Rate, S/N and Mode for each device. That is priceless This info isn't even available on the desktop version. The only options you can't change are DHCP Reservations and Port Settings. Access Control is included and is very helpful because you can go to a machine and check its MAC address then set Access Control from the iPhone.
THE BEST ALWAYS!!!!
I've had Apple routers since day one and love them! I will NEVER go back. I love the security they provide and settings can be endless.
The parental controls or time of access is awesome for my 3 nieces that like their iPads more than me!
One feature I would like though is to be able to kick a device off any of my networks or ban them. I have a pesky neighbor who loves to use my internet and not pay for his own! It would be nice to stop an amateur hacker like this from getting on my network every time I change the password.
I love the guest network option and being able to control the amount of bandwidth they are using because sometimes I like to watch my Apple TV and not have it buffering the whole movie or show!
I have the fastest comcast available in my area at home and at the office I use the Apple network to configure my employees and see who is actually doing work and see who is playing! It works very well to handle the Business class speeds of 1 GB/sec that's incredible because apple doesn't advertise just how awesome these routers really are!
I recommend them to any and everybody who asks about who, why, or how my internet is so consistent and Quick!
You will only fall in love from setup till forever of use!
