FWIW, the only aspect of WiFi that would be Apple specific are updates to MacOS or IOS.Personally, I like Ubiquiti UniFi Access Points - great management software, Power Over Ethernet means only a single cable needs to go to them easing placement considerably, they work independently of a router and pricing is excellent.
I'm wondering if you are still on 802.11n (i.e. if you have the previous generation of Airport Extreme)? Have you tried using the 5Ghz band (for devices that support it).
I switched to google wifi with the mesh, it has great coverage for three stories, one in the ground and two on the main level all wired and those cover the upstairs without issue. It resolved the random drops, and every location i've tested can match the bandwidth with the level of service of my ISP.
So Apple never updates the firmware on their Airport Extreme?
I’m an early adopter of the Eero routers which are a mesh network. Best money I’ve ever spent on my network.
How does this compare to commercial access points designed to perform overlapping coverage in large areas? Do they function without the requirement for a wired connection?
Not sure how to switch to the 5Ghz band.
In Airport Utility, you enable a second network at 5 GHz. Recent Macs should have no problem connecting to the 5GHz network. It may have less interference - at any rate, it's free to try and see
