Considering that the major cable & phone ISPs probably won't upgrade that equipment they rent to you, whether or not you actually use it, getting a new router from them, or even updated firmware, is dreaming. Yes, once the fixes are applied, getting a different router with them and turning off all but gateway functions in the ISP router would be a good idea. And, probably, one should change the wifi password periodically, though with potentially hundreds of devices connected that could be a real pain to propagate through a basically unmanaged home network.
