How do I update my Frontier router?

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 take care of pushing updates directly to your router from our central locations. We keep track of any manufacturer updates, then we test and accept the updates before sending.

Frontier updates your firmware automatically.

  • You do not have to do anything.
  • You don't have to remember to check for updates.
  • You do not have to visit a web site to download updates.
  • Unlike your smartphones, tablets or computers, you do not have to download updates.

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