Dodgy WiFi!

Good day, I hope I'm in the right place - Is it at all possible to have my F-Secure purchase mailed to me? Because the Wifi is really dodgy where i'm staying at present and I think the best way around it would be to install it via disc.

 

Thanks for any help

Hi JackB,

 

If you need a CD version, yes it is possible, but you have to buy it. However, you will still get a network installer in which it is totally the same as what you will get from the link below:

The only difference is that the F-Secure CD version contains a Rescue CD. So in short, by having a CD version, most likely your issue will persist. I'd recommend to contact your ISP in order to fix your WiFi connectivity issue first :)

Re: Dodgy WiFi!

Not many AV vendors still supply programs on disc. Not sure that F-Secure still offers this option nowadays.

 

So you could either;

 

1. Use a download manager program that allows the F-Secure download to resume when connections are lost; http://www.freedownloadmanager.org/

 

2. Is your computer a mobile laptop or netbook? If so and you have access to a free WiFi connection (e.g., at a public library or coffee shop), you could download the large initial update. If no laptop take your flash-drive/pendrive along.

Fendy,

 

how do you go about buying the CD?

Hi Blackcat,

 

During a checkout, there will be an option to choose a "CD version". However, it is not possible to buy it as a standalone from our online store.
