Router security is in your hands alone.

No matter the brand, if your router is not running a custom open source firmware of some variety make haste to remedy the situation, by replacing the device if necessary. A router with proprietary firmware is a liability to you and the rest of the Internet.

Be mindful, these are not the words of some FOSS fanatic, but a person who observed the state of networking hardware security for several decades.
