Hello, I'd like to hear about your experiences with Apple Airport basestations (Extreme and Express), especially if you are have more than one or are having problems with them.

I administer a network with five Airport basestations and they are constantly crashing and failing. Apple seem familiar with the problem but don't seem to be fixing it.

Do you use DHCP+NAT or bridge-mode? (distribute IP addresses checked or not)
Do you use WDS and/or encryption?
What is the nature of the failures or problems you have with your Airport(s)?
How many Airport basestations and client computers?

Apple are being a typical megacorp about this, I provided detailed reports of the failures to them and they refuse to acknowledge a problem with their product.

Thanks in advance for your feedback.
