firmware update for new WPA2 KRACK vulnerability
« on: October 16, 2017, 08:35:21 AM »

This is an old router.  Can we expect a firmware update to address the super-nasty new WPA2 KRACK vulnerability?  https://www.forbes.com/sites/thomasbrewster/2017/10/16/krack-attack-breaks-wifi-encryption/#5952bdbb2ba9

D-link is ware of the issue already. No information on when fixes are forth coming. I presume they are in the testing and planning stages of this. Please be patient.
If you need more help and information regarding this, I recommend that you phone contact your regional D-Link support office and ask for help and information regarding this. We find that phone contact has better immediate results over using email.
Let us know how it goes please.
