How to Configure FastLane Technology on Netgear Extender

FastLane Technology provides you with maximum WiFi performance. Basically, it offers high-speed WiFi connection with a dedicated band connecting the WiFi router to your extender and a second band connecting the WiFi device and extender. Firstly, you need to check whether your Netgear Range Extender supports FastLane Technology or not. If it supports, here’s how to configure FastLane Technology on your Netgear Extender:

  • Connect your client device to the extender.
  • After that, open any web browser such as Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome or Internet Explorer.
  • Type mywifiext.net in the address bar and press Enter key.
  • Enter the username and password when the login window appears.
  • On the Netgear Genie page, click on ‘Do More’ and then on ‘FastLane’ option.
  • Now, you will get two options: ‘Device-to-extender in 2.4 GHz only and extender-to-router in 5 GHz only’ and ‘Device-to-extender in 5 GHz only and extender-to-router in 2.4 Ghz’.
  • Select any option you like and click on the Save button.

Netgear X6S AC3000 Setup Using WPS Push Button

To set up your Nighthawk WiFi Extender using WPS:

  • Power on the extender.
  • Place the extender and WiFi router in the same room.
  • Once done, plug your extender into an electrical outlet.
  • Wait for the Power LED on AC3000 to light green.
  • Press the WPS button on the extender.
  • Now, press the WPS button on your WiFi router.
  • If the Netgear AC3000 Link Status LED lights white, the connection between your router and extender is good.

Note: If your router supports the 5 GHz band, your extender attempts to connect to the router’s 5 GHz band the first time you press the WPS button. If your extender did not connect to the router’s 5 GHz band the first time, it may result in a lot of issues during extender setup. To resolve such issues at the earliest, give us a call at toll-free +1-888-961-4011.

  • Move your extender to a new location that is about halfway between your router and the area with a poor router WiFi signal.
  • Take your WiFi-enabled computer or mobile device to the location with poor WiFi router coverage.
  • Connect your WiFi-enabled computer or mobile device to the extended network. Your extender uses the same WiFi network settings as your router for its 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz extended networks.

That’s how you can complete your Netgear X6S AC3000 Extender Setup using WPS button.
