Your expensive Wi-Fi router probably has security flaws — here's what to do – Tom's Guide

Even the most highly-rated Wi-Fi routers with up-to-date firmware can be riddled with security flaws, an analysis by German security researchers IoT-Inspector and German tech magazine CHIP has found.

The researchers looked at nine models on CHIP’s “best routers” list: two FritzBoxes from German router-maker AVM, plus one each from Asus, D-Link, Edimax, Linksys, Netgear, Synology and TP-Link. (Two are also on the Tom’s Guide list of best Wi-Fi routers.) The Synology and TP-Link had the most vulnerabilities, with 30 and 32 each, although some of those flaws were classified as low-risk.
