  5. Unable to set metered connection in Windows 10.

    Original Title: set metered connection

    I can't set my PC to metered connection - and I just got a bill for $240

    thanks to Windows 10's forced update no choice policy.

    I have a Verizon modem which I plug in the USB slot.When I follow the steps below, after Advanced options, I see

    Manufacturer blah blah

    Description blah blah

    etc.

    Under Ethernet it says "Ethernet 2 - connected"

    The steps below do not work on my Windows 10 PC

    Open your Start menu and select Settings to launch it.

    Click or tap the “Network & Internet” icon, select “Wi-Fi,” and select “Advanced options” at the bottom of the list of nearby Wi-Fi networks.

    Activate the “Set as metered connection” option here.Sep 3, 2015
