Do I need to update my router firmware?

Updating your router's firmware (its operating system) on a regular basis is important for better connections, reliable security and fixing any bugs.

That's why we push updates directly to your router. We test and verify any manufacturer updates before sending them to your router.

Because Frontier updates your firmware automatically:

  • You don't have to check for updates.
  • You don't have to download and install updates.

If there is ever a situation—which is very rare—when you need to enable a firmware update yourself, we will inform you.
