I recently bought a new 2023 MacBook Pro 16. I was very happy with it and as part of the setup I installed McAfee Total Protection.
At some point I noticed internet was cutting in and out. I never lost my Wi-FI connection. Yet internet could work for for 5 mins and then blipped. I was unable to pull up websites, unable to use Slack, unable to use Mail, etc. so clearly my entire computer had no Internet access. Then a minute later or so internet worked again.
This has gone on for 3-4 days and I was beginning to think that my computer is defective and was preparing to go into an Apple Store. Then when I did some googling I came across an article mentioning if you have McAfee Total Protection it can cause issues and that is isn't totally compatible yet with Ventura. That article was written in late Oct of 2022 though.
I uninstalled McAfee Total Protection and restarted my computer and have used it for hours with no issues at all so I believe that was the issue.
Is this a known issue? If so is it going to be updated soon? Could I have just had a bad install and maybe simply need to reinstall again?
