Self updating webpage
Separately, Google Wifi security features says "All software updates are signed by Google.
Google Wifi cant download or run any software that isnt signed and verified" and "All communication between Google Wifi and Google is secured by Transport Layer Security (TLS)".
We have dashboards so we can monitor progress of the firmware releases, which is done in carefully controlled phases. As of mid-April 2017 Google does not seem to have a single web page with a history of firmware releases. I could not tell, immediately, if this was true or not. Firmware revision can be noted per mesh node via the app. Q: Can you be notified of firmware updates beforehand? Updates are done carefully in a phased rollout to ensure no regressions.
Q: Does the vendor document the changes in each firmware update? A: Yes Q: Can you tell what version of the firmware is now running? A: Users can turn off updates by opting out of cloud services Q: Can you backup the router settings to a file? Q: In a mesh, what happens if one device gets new firmware but another device does not?As for answering these questions, my experience with self-updating routers has been limited to Eero, the Turris Omnia and Google Wi-Fi.Someone from Linksys provided answers to these questions for their "Smart-Wifi" branded routers (model numbers starting with EA or WRT).The release notes contain a timestamp of the release, the firmware version, and some patch notes. The router checks for updates by querying the Linksys Smart Wi Fi cloud.During setup, there's a checkbox that you can uncheck to prevent the router from automatically checking for and installing updates.
