Secure your router

February 14, 2020

For most of usour router is a device we barely interact with, apart from the occasional restart. Usually, after setup, it’s delegated to a location most convenient for signal and left to do its job in peace. Though, as the gateway to the internet for all your devices, you may be putting everything you’re doing online at risk by missing out on important security features due to outdated firmware. 

A compromised router could not only have devastating effects on your privacy and security but could also seriously hamper your network speeds. Don’t kick yourself if you haven’t maintained your updates; most connected devices require little to no input from us for updates and router firmware is largely a manual process. 

If you’re an RSAWEB customer, you’ve most likely got an Archer C2 or C20 router and can find instructions on how to update your router here. 

If you have a different brand of router, you should be able to find it on the manufacturer’s websiteBelow is a list of links to some of the most common suppliers sites. 

If you’re unsure of how to do it yourself, our incredible support team are always on hand to help, email them at [email protected] or call 0874700000 

To ensure you have an optimal experience and up to date security, we recommend checking for updates at least quarterly.
