I just discovered that there is a new version of firmware released on 15 December 2017 and made available for download on 22 December 2017 for my TP-Link RE450 AC1750 WiFi range extender. I should have discovered this earlier!
This is an important firmware update, because it includes the security bug fix for the WPA2 Security (KRACKs) Vulnerability.
Other enhancements and bug fixes in this version of firmware include:
- Improved online detection method and reduced unnecessary data traffic.
- Improved the system stability and wireless stability.
- Fixed the wireless compatibility with Volvo cars.
- Fixed the wireless compatibility with some wireless network card.
To update the firmware, unzip the downloaded file, and upload it to your RE450 WiFi range extender by login into the device, and go to System Tools > Firmware Upgrade section.
Your existing configuration in the RE450 will still remain after this firmware update.
After the update, you will see the firmware version changed to 1.0.0 Build 20171215 Rel. 55534.
