I try to. Depending on the update I've heard of losing a few ms off your ping. I was recommended a Billion router from the guy who told me that. I bought one and have updated the FW but haven't noticed any decrease in ping but who knows.

Not normally, and not without good reason.

Closing a security hole might be a good enough reason.... Otherwise the risk-to-reward ratio is too low to make it a priority.
