Netgear admits wireless speed claims are misleading

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 10:40 pm

The company has promised a 15 per cent discount to US users, who claim they were misled by advertising - but which WiFi outfit doesn’t mislead?

In the case of Netgear, its claim was that the RangeMax WiFi product - which uses a pre-N style of MIMO wireless, was capable of reaching 240 megabits - a claim it now modifies with “Actual performance may vary according to the operating environment.”

Netgear says that it accepts no liability for the misunderstanding (”liability” being a technical term in legalese) but it could well complain that it’s hardly unique.
