    It's just a stop gap solution. The only thing that's truly important is patched firmware for access points, routers and modems.

    The vulnerability is in the client software, not the server, so if you are using an AP as a base, it should be OK, if it being used as a client (eg, a repeater) it may be at risk.

    For users of Draytek products there is an announcement here.

    Re: Microsoft already patched KRACK WPA2 vulnerability

    It's just a stop gap solution. The only thing that's truly important is updating ... Android phones.

    Reasonably modern Windows, Mac and Linux desktops/laptops can all get updates. Apple phones from the last 3-4 years can run latest iOS and get updates. Hell I suspect even Windows Lumia phones got an update. But I've got a retail Moto X Play still on Android 6, and I've given up expecting an update.

    For the majority of Android phone manufacturers it seems security is a flagship-only feature
