They don't specify on that particular item they do on the others however (wifi sticks and the apple USB to ethernet adapter). Which would lead me to believe that there makes no difference on that part... You can use any Wi-Fi router If you want, The airport allows you to play music off of your iPad but I got my iPad today and I can go into a USB stick (My USB stick is the engenious one and I have it plugged into a USB hub with another flash drive with music on it) or into the SD card and played music fine!!!

I have never looked at the model. I just bought one off the shelf at future shop. But pretty certain they will all work.

I would get the latest model (mid 2012) MC414.

It has simultaneous dual-band, i.e 2.4 GHz and the 5 GHz WiFi at the same time.

It has two ethernet ports, one for an internet WAN modem, the other for standard LAN stuff.

It features a WLAN-Bridge mode that i need sometimes.

And it has separate power cable so that i can place the AirPort wherever i want.

The older models have a 'Power Adapter' design and must be plugged in directly.


I do not know if the older models will work. They have an ethernet port, but as i understand that port is for a WAN Internet modem.

I have both the older one and the newer one I tested the older one before I bought the newer one.  They both work.  The single ethernet port on the older one must serve dual function.
