Norton slowing down connection speed??

Hi All,

I am sure I saw a post recently regarding a bug in the latest Norton update slowing down connection speeds. I have had a look through the various forums and can't find it. Any ideas or am I having a Saga moment?

Thanks and regards, Mike

Norton slowing down connection speed??

The problem in the past was due to a security certificate expiration which was fixed a few days later. This caused norton antivirus to hang trying to authenticate itself.

I suspect you have something else wrong or misconfigured.

Does the speed increase if you disable the firewall? I.e. it could be the connection not the firewall that is slow.
