Is that just for antivirus or does McAfee have a browser as well?
.

No - just virus etc - no browser. BUT - they do allow you to use it on up to 3 other things - so my son actually uses it on his computer and I have it on my laptop.

I find Edge quite OK.

I use avast free antivirus along with Spybot which is free........never had a problem, the Avast antivirus gives you 5GB of free VPN every week as well but I just turn on the VPN when I'm doing financial stuff and use the bank mode in the Avast browser as well. On my task bar I have both the Avast browser icon and the Google Chrome icon and just switch between them as necessary.

Here is Avast secure browser, it should be compatible with whatever you are using.

Does anyone get Foxtel - via Wifi ?

If yes, is it a good signal ?

If yes - did you do anything to increase the signal ?
I think you need a modem and a smart tv.
I don’t have Foxtel through the wi fi part but the smart tv does show clear pictures of you tube or music videos.
i have to update to the wi fi Foxtel this year according to Foxtel which comes via Telstra but I am thinking of letting it lapse and getting the instead.

I learned a new thing - apparently the guarantees you get for downloads ARE ONLY to the modem.

Your Wi-fi from the modem in your house are NOT guaranteed. AT ALL.
