    a very nice mount with a couple limitations, July 7, 2014
    By 
    et (Western US) –

    This review is from: Airbase – Wall/Ceiling Mount for Apple AirPort Extreme & Time Capsule [Base Unit] (Electronics)
    I received a free mount from the company that sells these on Amazon, in exchange for an honest review.

    First off, I will explain what I used before I had this mount:

    I needed to mount my Airport Extreme (latest generation, “tower” style) in a common hallway to maximize my wi-fi range.

    I found a very inexpensive aluminum “L” shaped shelf at Ikea that I screwed into the wall above the crown molding, and placed the Airport Extreme on the shelf, then plugged in the necessary connections via a small hole through the wall leading from my office to the hallway.

    This initial “Ikea cheap shelf” installation method worked fine but it was kind of ugly.

    I was very pleased when Giros offered to send me their mount to install and review.

    First off, I received the mount only. There is a companion “security cap” that is sold separately and is supposed to secure the Airport Extreme in public areas to deter theft.

    I certainly don’t need that security at home, but the cap is needed if you intend to ceiling mount the unit or wish to wall mount-install close to the ceiling

    The downside to the wall mount method – without the cap – is the mount must be low enough on the wall to then insert the Airport Extreme FROM ABOVE (you have to screw the mount to the wall before you insert the Extreme).

    My desired mounting location remained above the crown molding — if installed below this, it would be smack dab in the middle of my wall and more unsightly than it was with the Ikea shelf.

    So, I did an unconventional installation — I installed it sideways (above the crown molding) and slid the Airport Extreme in from the right side. The disadvantage of this installation method is that the Airport Extreme doesn’t click into position, but rather the bottom of it (or left end) droops a little. I solved this with 4 small squares of double sided tape that I applied to the bottom of the extreme and then pushed the Extreme into the bottom (left) of the mount so it would stick.

    The great thing about this installation is that:

    1. The Extreme is slid in from the side, so can install it high up on the wall
    2. The Apple logo at the top of the extreme is visible when walking down the hall
    3. The indicator LED is facing down, so a quick glance up lets you know what the status is (green = ok, amber = something needs attention)

    I will upload a picture of my installed mount/Extreme so you can see what the final result looks like — edit: not currently able to upload my installation picture, but when possible I will.

    Had I received a security cap, I would’ve ceiling mounted the unit or installed it by inserting the Extreme from BELOW, and then slid in the cap to secure it vertically – but my non-conventional installation, while not likely supported by Giros, is, in my opinion, a nicer look.

    Pros:

    – Very nice looking, well fitting mount, reasonably priced

    Cons:

    – Need the security cap sold separately if you want to do a ceiling mount or a high up the wall installation

    – Wall mount cannot be very high up if you don’t have the security cap (unless you follow my unconventional installation)

    A very high quality mount, perfect if you need to have wireless in a public area., June 7, 2014

    If you’re somebody needs to mount your Time Capsule and Apple AirPort Extreme’s out of the way or in public locations this is perfect. Anytime you want to give the public access to free Wi-Fi if you’re using an Apple router this is the way to go.I love the fact that looks good and can keep your expensive Apple router secure and out-of-the-way.

    Also if you’re somebody who is having trouble getting signals to the upper levels of your house/living space. You can use this to mount your router closer to your second floor and I’m sure you can boost your signal. If you need to extend your wireless range anytime you can move your router out into its own space you’ll get a lot less signal loss.

    I didn’t receive any instructions in my box maybe they just got misplaced by the shipper. But is not too difficult to get set up and hopefully they generally come with instructions. With that said the images they have here on Amazon were great for giving you a basic overview of how to set it up.

    Thanks for reading.

    This is the perfect mount for my Time capsule. I wanted it to be placed on the wall, and did not want to put it up with a cheap plastic mount. When giros asked me to review their metal mount! I was hoping this was the answer.

    Well, it is! This is a great solution to a problem, that is now solved. Thanks!
