    Windows 7

    Microsoft account and 3G internet


    Since Windows 10 is out, I would love to update, but I have little issue. I already had it with Windows 8 and that is why I am back on 7. That is with connecting my account to Microsoft account. Problem I have is with internet connection. I use mobile internet via 3/4G on USB modem. When I turn on my PC, I don't have internet connection, because I must log in, start connection utility and connect to internet. With Windows 8, that pretty much locked me out, since I connected my account to MS account and it required internet access. So, can anyone tell me how Windows 10 is with this? Do I need to make 2 accounts, one local to connect, one MS? Not sure if it will disconnect me on user switching. Or did MS actually change anything since Win8 and I could log in without internet? I don't have any wireless nearby or way to get any other internet connection, because I live bit too far and no ISP offers service in my spot.

    Since no one replied, I might post my experience. I tried it and Windows 10 handled it quite well. Did full power off and modem reset and system would still allow me to log in.

    Just in case anyone wonders, on setup I created first account, I kept that one offline. Then after first login, I created another one. Logged in to that one. Connected it to MS account, set PIN and that was it. Then I tested it. And after restart I could simply log in with PIN I set.

    However, just in case, I would recommend people with same problem to keep one offline account just in case. I did not do any extensive testing. Just basic test.
