    Up for 9 days now as a Media Bridge with no problems to report. It is unfortunate that Merlin is no longer supporting the older MIPS models (for very good reasons), but as long as Asus releases updates that don't break things, might as well stay current with security patches.

    The flaw in WPA2 that was recently discovered did affect Media Bridge mode due to it acting as a wireless client. Otherwise, yes, you are correct. Not having a device exposed to the internet does mostly eliminate the need for future security updates.
