In May 2018, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against Netgear for allegedly falsely representing that its WiFi range extenders extend the range of wireless internet networks by close to 200 percent when, according to the plaintiffs, the products extend the range of networks by less than 50 percent. Two days after the complaint was filed, a federal judge dismissed
the complaint without prejudice
for lack of jurisdiction. Plaintiffs have until June 21, 2018 to file an amended complaint. (Fischer et al v. Netgear, Inc.
, Case No. 18-cv-3650, N. D. IL.)
