This article provides instructions on how to configure FastLane Technology on EX6400, EX7000 or EX7300 range extenders. FastLane Technology offers maximum WiFi performance via a dedicated band connecting the Extender and the WiFi client device as well as a second band connecting the extender and the Wi-Fi router. FastLane Technology is ideal for HD gaming and HD video streaming.

Note: If all your client devices are single band, do not enable FastLane Technology.


To enable FastLane Technology:

  1. Ensure the wireless client device is connected to the extender’s wireless network.
  2. Open an Internet browser and go to www.mywifiext.net.
  3. When prompted, type the email address and password that you have setup when setting up the extender account.
  4. Now in NETGEAR genie page, click Do More and then click to FastLane.
