    Airport Extreme is Apples name for WiFi

    Airport Extreme uses the 802.11g radio bands.
    What you do is you have your cable or dsl modem connected into an Airport Base Station or any other 802.11g access point or router and then your computer can connect to the internet wirelessly

    Many college campuses have wireless networks set up so that if you have a powerbook with Airport (older models have this) or Airport Extreme card in it you can connect to the campus network practically anywhere on campus.

    Regular Airport is 802.11b -- This is not as fast but has a greater range 11mbps at 150 ft Range

    Airport Extreme has a 54mbps speed but only up to 50 ft from the station...after that its just like 802.11b
