the airport exterme and time capsual gets up to 300 feet with out and source of interferenace (
line-of-sight (unobstructed) usually ... that's standard wifi range for 2.4ghz routers at full power)
adn Express have 150 feet with out any source of interference.

70,000 sq ft seems a bit excessive, are you sure it is not 7,000
If you do the math......area of a circle is Pi times radius squared.
So A = 3.14 x 150 feet x 150 feet = 70,650 feet squared.

I have tested these measurements personally, and speak from experience here.
You might be able to detect a signal at 300 feet, but it willl be so slow and so weak as to be virtually unusable. My answer was conservative and assumed that the user wanted a good quality signal, not a signal that might work.

and you are right... at 300 feet its not good because thast srecthign the packets over a very long distand adn with a 2.4 GHZ freqancy they degraded the further they go.
But like i said its wiht out any source of interference which i NEVR THE case

What they tell you and what you will discover....if you do this.....are two different things.
Notice that Apple does not include any distance specifications in their product specifications.
BTW, the product specifications for the new AirPort Expess indicate that it has a bit more output power than the AirPort Extreme. So, far, that appears to be true on the sample that I have.
