WiFiRanger provides free firmware updates for its products. Updates continue for as long as your device can effectively use the firmware upgrade. At some point, all hardware will become obsolescent due to technology advancement. Past that point no further updates would be provided because the device’s hardware would not be able to support them effectively. Most WiFiRanger routers have received firmware updates for several years before obsolescence, and the firmware version they are locked to still provides more functionality and stability than at the original time of purchase.
