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
  • fixing 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.

In the rare case that you need to enable a firmware update yourself, we'll let you know.
