    Good morn.

    I have in vain tried to find the setting for metered connection in the stationary machine, but nil. On the laptop I have stumbled over it, and apparently set it to NO (metered).

    Go into the Systems window -> Network -> Status -> Change Connection Properties
    Metered Connections to OFF.

    Kid's stuff. Enjoy. Jean.

    Thanks Jean, I'll check that, but I happened to stumble across the
    setting yesterday.

    The WiFi connection refused to open as usual, so I went to the window
    where the various networks that my WiFi hears, to check the settings of
    my WiFi connection.

    There it was. 'Metered connection' was ON, it's now OFF.

    Kid's stuff. Enjoy. Jean.

    Yes if you know where to look for it. I'll check your advice tonight.

    The odd thing is, that when I put windows to search for 'metered' and
    'metered connection', I got no response.

    Yeah, if it were that simple. Of course the start is Settings -> System Checking all items under System didn't reveal any Network. So back out
    and choose Network from the main Settings window to show that LAN cable
    not connected, WiFi disabled, and WiFi2 enabled.
    Status shows the ASUS N-13 Network Adapter USB dongle, used to receive
    the wireless signals, like the built-in antennas in a laptop do.

    Not before switching on the soap-like router, I call it router because
    it does the same job, can I do something useful.

    By clicking on the network icon on the task bar and the clicking on the
    name of the "router" do I see Properties -- and now I can see the ON/OFF setting for metered connection. I did of course set it to NO.

    Now it only remains for me to find out how I can use WiFi from the
    laptop. In the City there are big advertisements for Free WiFi via "citymariehamn.ax", but to reach that URL, I must first connect to
    my ISP provider, and then it isn't free anymore, since I must carry
    that "router" with me to make it possible.

    OK, next step is to take the laptop in the car, and drive to the ferry terminal, that also tells they have Free WiFi, to find out how it works.
