    Office 2016 suddenly giving metered connection (on a LAN) !!


    Hi there

    I'm using a desktop on a LAN and now when I get into outlook I'm getting a "Metered connection" warning and a prompt to "connect anyway".

    Really annoying this -- I'm on a totally unlimited broadband package and this only seems to happen on one machine. On another laptop same program (Office 2016) on Same Lan doesn't issue message.

    Any ideas anybody --I've switched off as a test every setting I can find for WIFI - still get that annoying message.

    I've re-booted and reset the router --still the same B/S.

    Cheers
    jimbo

  2. How do I turn off the Metered Connection Warning in Outlook 2016?

    Yes, I did change the permissions appropriately. I think this is a bug with Office 2016. Even though I'm able to change the Registry values after changing the permissions, Outlook still presents the Metered Connection warning.

    What is shown in Settings, Network, Ethernet, Manage known networks, {the network in question}, Properties, Set as metered connection?
