Norton Core firmware version 223 and Mobile ver 1.27 are now available

Norton Core firmware version 223 and Mobile ver 1.27 are now available

2017 has been a busy first year for the Norton Core team. We have made significant improvements to the performance, reliable and setup of Norton Core.

We capped the year with our latest firmware — version 223 as well as an updated app — version 1.27. (Both Android and iOS)

Firmware version 223 has additional improvements to stability and performance. Your Norton Core router should have already automatically updated itself with this new version of firmware. If it has not, please power cycle your router by unplugging the cable and then plugging it back in.

Our latest mobile app to version 1.27 includes improved notification alerts.
