    Part 2 - No Windows Updates over Mobile Broadband!


    Hi all.
    I am starting this new thread as the previous thread had become quite old and no one was replying on that post.

    I had started a thread here a while ago regarding usage of a mobile broadband like 3g/4g to receive windows updates in Windows 10. The method worked like a charm for some time but then it completely stopped working. Now again I cant download Windows Updates following the gpedit method shown in the aforementioned thread.

    This is really very frustrating. The owner of the mobile broadband is not allowed to use it as per his or her needs! Guys do we have a working method to force 'smart' Windows 10 to use the mobile broadband dongle to download the windows updates?

    Your help would be much appreciated!
    Regards

    :)

    Control windows 10 home updates

    Hi All

    I need a way to control windows updates over mobile broadband.

    I know you can manage it over WIFI. That is; you can set each WiFi network can have a "Metered connection" property set on it. Metered networks should not allow updates to be downloaded and that your updates will be withheld until
    you connect to a network that you have not identified as Metered.

    BUT you cannot set LAN networks as Metered, only WiFi ones.

    The problem I have is that my mobile broadband is identified as an Ethernet LAN connection.

    I do try to keep my laptop up-to-date and make absolutely sure all patches antivirus etc are up-to-date before I go on the road. But this does not stop win10 downloading the latest update over what is my most expensive connection.

    How can I change the way in which windows 10 identifies my usb mobile broadband or control which LAN is a “Metered Connection”?

    Thanks

    Peter
