I'm running version r42954 from March 2020 on a couple of DIR-882's and a DIR-878... it's doing absolutely fine. So my strong inclination is if it ain't broke don't fix it. But are there any reasons from a security or vulnerability viewpoint that would point towards updating?

Welcome to the forum.

Please read the forum guidelines with lots of helpful information e.g. where to post, how to research your router, what builds to download etc.:

I will move this thread to the more appropriate forum for you routers.

Security is the biggest reason to update Smile
