I’ve had a few routers and they all have suffered from poor update support, often getting abandoned in the update department after only 6 months. As I am constantly reading about insecure routers, how can I pick a good one that will receive updates and be reasonable from a security standpoint? I’m reluctant to flash a device with os firmware, I’d prefer something that doesn’t take a masters in networking to figure out.

Any suggestions?

It is not so much about the router as it is about the firmware which is running on that hardware. You can buy any device which is supported by DD-WRT - just check the list.

DD-WRT also pushed a fix for the latest vulnerability known as KRACK.


The thing is that you should go with better maintained firmware.
