    netdragon,

    Do you have an "Advanced options" link at step 7A instead to click on?

    Yes, there's advanced options, which looks like it lets you set the current connection to "metered" but not any others. I guess that's another way to do it. For me, I doubt I'll remember to set it to metered next time I'm on it, so using the command line seemed like a better choice, at least for me personally. Additionally, it is the approach that most closely matches using the GUI on Windows 10 home.

    netdragon,

    I'm glad you found it. When you update to the next build of Windows 10, it'll be the same as in the tutorial afterwards. :)

    Shawn,

    As I mentioned in my previous post, this settings is being ignored in 14291. I have tried my WiFi set to metered using Settings, Registry (DefaultMediaCost) WiFi=2, and command prompt (netsh wlan set profileparameter name="network_ssid_here" cost=Fixed). I have restarted after each change. When new updates are found they download immediately. I no longer get the metered connection notice or the Download button. Hopefully this is just a temporary anomaly with 14291. For me this is an important setting, because I use it to "control" Windows Update.

    Hello hiens, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    Please post screenshots showing the command prompt with the results from OPTION TWO, and your registry setting for this to see what may be wrong.

    heins,

    As a test, restart the computer to see if it changes to 2 in the registry afterwards. :)
