KRACK Fix for DIR 842?
« on: March 27, 2018, 01:21:30 PM »

DIR 842 is not on the revised firmware list for a fix to resolve the KRACK vulnerability.   Does anyone know if/when there will be an update to address KRACK?

If it is not listed HERE, it most likely is not affected (but I do not know 100% for sure).

Make sure your clients are updated and you have the latest Windows/macOS, iOS, and Android updates. Remember the KRACK vulnerability can only be exploited if a hacker is within Wi-Fi range of your network AND a client is negotiating with the router/access point (i.e. a reboot or powered on).

Link>Welcome!

  • What Hardware version is your router? Look at sticker under the router case.
  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the routers web page under status.
  • What region are you located?
