The NETGEAR patented Fastane3 Technology is comprised of Tii-band WiFi that creates a dedicated WiFi link between the extender and router and an optimized antenna design in the extender, giving you more speed to more devices. These elements combined create a powerful solution to extend WiFi throughout your home.

This feature maxim yes performance by limiting devices to a specific band. The front haul is always one band, however, the backhaul is not always 5GHz. This feature maximizes performance by missing devices to a specific band. The front haul has two bands, backhaul is usually 5GHz. Thereby ensuring that all your devices operating on the 5Ghz network have a dedicated WiFi connection.
 FastLane needs to be enabled in the GUI. In Nighthawk X6S Tri-band WiFi range extender FastLane3 Technology is automatically enabled.
