How Long Does a Router Last?

The suggested replacement frequency for routers is every five years if you don't use many smart devices, or every two to three years if you do. This is because newer routers often come with improved features and security measures that can better handle the increasing demands of smart devices. Additionally, some experts recommend replacing your router after firmware updates end or you upgrade most of your wireless devices to ensure optimal performance and security.

Router technology is a dynamic field constantly evolving and offering new and exciting features. Upgrading to a router that supports the latest generations of Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi security, such as Wi-Fi 6 and WPA3, can significantly enhance your network's performance and security. It's like stepping into a new era of connectivity, making it a worthwhile investment.

What factors can affect the lifespan of a router?

Several factors can impact the lifespan of a router, including usage patterns, environmental conditions, and technological advancements. Heavy usage, exposure to extreme temperatures or humidity, and outdated hardware can all contribute to a shorter lifespan for your router.

How can I extend the lifespan of my router?

To prolong the lifespan of your router, it's essential to practice good maintenance habits. This includes keeping your router's firmware up to date, protecting it from power surges with a surge protector, and ensuring proper ventilation by keeping it in a well-ventilated area away from obstructions. Regularly cleaning the router's vents and resetting it occasionally can also help maintain optimal performance.
