When will Verizon be releasing updated firmware for the G1100? Currently this router's WPA2 is easily crackable. Please advise when we should expect a firmware update.

I contacted Verizon Tech Support. They replied that "The Quantum router is not affected by the WPA2 vulnerability". I requested a written statement to that effect, let's see if I get it.

Does anyone know whether Vz has distributed a firmware upgrade for its WiFi routers to address the WPA2 hack?

KRACK WiFi exploit fix for Actiontec routers

Message 20 of 57
(10,830 Views)

With the news of the KRACK WiFi exploit for WPA2, I'm curious if there will be a patch for the routers we have.  I checked the firmware for it last night and it's using firmware from 2016 I believe.  I know a lot of the problem is the clients of the router and not the router itself, but I've seen news about other  router providers having patches for their routers as well and nothing from Actiontec.

 

Will there be an update?

 

Thank you.
