    Metered connections again...


    Sigh,

    I have done my damnest to get windows to update over 3G (metered) connection with no luck. I have done the msconfig edit tricks and all I could find on these forums but nothing seems to help. It just won't update - or actually now it says updates available and starts to download, but it stays forever at 0%. It will however download Defender updates promptly.

    Is the only way to occasionally carry the PC somewhere where I can plug it to Ethernet? Really?
    The last time I did it by reinstalling W10 with the online installation tool, and it downloaded and reinstalled it promptly again and that way I managed to get it to November update. But since then it stubbornly refuses to download anything.

    Any new ideas for fixing this?

    [EDIT]

    I came up with a solution...instead of using the 3G modem I plug in a WiFi card, and use it to connect to my mobile phone sharing the same 3G connection and NOW it loads them! Whoohoo! A bit convoluted though. But a working solution.

    Must be a big problem to many, there must be thousands of homes where networks are only provided via air 3G/4G etc. and no other networks are even possible (I mean rural areas, archipelagos and such where there are no landline telephones let alone cable TV's existing, only cellular networks available)

    Cheers,

    Dee

  3. Cellular Network on Windows 10 pc

    Recently I upgraded my pc to Windows 10 pro from Windows 7, and then again updated the version to 1511. I use Huawei data for internet, the connection is cellular, I don't know whether the cellular connection is metered or not and if metered then how do
    I make it non-metered. I want to make the connection non-metered so that I can download UK English Speech, because I am not able to download it the error code is 0x800F0908. There is no option to set the 'Cellular' connection to metered or non-metered in 'Data
    Usage'. It is also said that Windows 10 is not able to download certain updates on metered network.

    Thanks in advance!!!
