    Hello avismile,

    I don't have a way to test it, but it should be the same. You would just select "Dialup" instead of "Wi-Fi" in the steps.

    thanks for the reply (and the tutorial)
    i am now in windows 8.1 (hope to upgrade soon [after all the bugs get settled]) and when i go to network connections i don't see any dialup connections so i am unable to set anything for it
    thanks in advance

    Hello,

    Maybe I'm missing it somewhere, but I looked at Option two and I don't see this in my Windows 10. I have not "Additional Settings" link on my Network & Internet flyout. Mine looks like Option one (which of course begs another question..why are there different results?)..but I want to be able to view estimated usage as I always have when I'm on a metered connection.:

    "Click/tap on Wi-Fi in the left pane, and click/tap on Show available connections under Additional settings on the bottom of the right side. (see screenshot below)

    Hello Luminouswounds, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Thank you. It looks like the old OPTION TWO has been removed in the RTM. The tutorial has been updated now.

    Just to be clear, for Option One there should be a step to first connect to the network you want to change?

    And as an aside: does Airplane mode turn off all Wi-Fi devices, or just the built-in one?

    Hello Nigel,

    Agreed. I updated OPTION ONE to be more clear for that. Thank you.

    Airplane mode will turn off all wireless communication (ex: Wi-Fi, mobile broadband, Bluetooth). It didn't turn off my external Netgear USB wireless adapter I test with.

    You can update it in gpedit.msc also I think No Windows Updates over Mobile Broadband! - Windows 10 Forums
