The cable folks tell us it's the airport extreme that is holding things back...that we need the new 5th generation?
Total nonsense. The "new" AirPort Extreme has virtually identical specifications to the version that you have.
The AirPort Extreme that you have will support up to 1,000 Mbps on Ethernet connections and up to 300 Mbps on wireless.
The "bottleneck" is your Internet connection, or a poor modem, or the cable company just not delivering what they say they are....not the AirPort Extreme.
Give the cable guys a few weeks to get the speeds up on the "new" service and check again at that time.

THANKS!! I'm getting better speeds already. Maybe it's just catching up...!
Just saved $180 bucks, too! Merry Christmas!
