I just finished a new Intel build and this is the first time I've gone with a wired ethernet connection. Everything else in the house is running on 2.4 or 5ghz wireless to my ASUS "Dark Knight" Dual band wifi router. This new desktop I plugged directly into the hard line port #1 on the ASUS router. I then installed Avast free version and chrome. I've never had problems with Avast till this last week. It updated and started blocking some games and programs on my AMD rig. Now on this new desktop it was blocking pretty much everything on Google Chrome till I found out I had to disable some new HTTPS scanning feature. Websites are working again, but is my wired connection as secure as my wifi connection? Is there another step to take because I pay some bills and purchase things online.
