I received my GL-A1800 (Flint) router the other day and am very happy with the prompt and efficient dispatch of the item.
One concern I have though is that the OS is based on OpenWRT 15.05 because of the dated Qualcomm SDK (see comment here).
This is a really dated and I’m concerned about software vulnerabilities such as the KRACK vulnerability discovered in 2016 (published 2017).
What efforts are being made by GL-iNet to work towards updating the SDK that is used so that these and other vulnerabilities are patched and the OS can be bought up-to-date to 21.02?
It is also somewhat baffling that the router is marketed as being WiFi6 enabled and yet, as per the above comment I link to from @alzhao …
Is there work in the background contributing to the improvement of this situation?
I purchased the GL-AX1800 to replace a Linksys WRT-1900ACS but given these short-comings I’m not ready to do so just yet and was wondering what timeline and/or release schedule there might be for updating the software.
Thanks in advance,
