    McAfee Internet Security for Mac is interfering with my Honeywell WiFi thermostats.

      Hello,

       

      I just downloaded McAfee Internet Security for Mac and I have two Honeywell WiFi thermostats that are now losing WiFi capability.

       

      The Honeywell FAQ site states this:

       

      Do Honeywell Wi-Fi thermostats meet security compatibility?

      As Wi-Fi technology changes, so do the security standards to protect Wi-Fi networks. The thermostats are compatible with the following security standards.

      • OPEN

      • WEP_PSK

      • WPA_TKIP_PSK

      • WPA2_AES_PSK

      • WPA2_MIXED_PSK

      • WPA_AES_PSK

      • WPA2_TKIP_PSK

       

      I've also noticed that my iPad loses connectivity also.

       

      Comcast/ Xfinity is my internet provider and I use Apple's Time Capsule as my router.

       

      What can I do to fix this issue?  I'm guessing it has something to do with the firewall settings?

       

      Thanks in advance!
