    Is it possible that I could add an Antivirus to my Modem Hub so that I won't need to buy separate Antiviruses for each device.
    If so how could I proceed, if it is possible could someone please instruct me on how.


    Thank You

    Lockeyp.

    If you are running Windows 10, then Defender that is part of Windows is all you need and it is FREE.

    No....they are a self contained unit with no access like a OS. However, they are NAT protected.

    What is NAT?

    Yes. You can have malware and antivirus protection at your edge firewall. But these features are only available with a UTM firewall. UTM firewalls are more expensive than your run of the mill SOHO routers and the UTM features require a yearly subscription.

    My Sonicwall TZ400W I use as my edge firewall/router has these features.
