    I recently started using D-Link DWR-910 4G USB router.

    I use it with my Toshiba laptop. I use a prepaid Airtel SIM card with it. It works well.

    My only complaint is that I cannot check data usage.

    The EZFI app does not work for PCs and laptops. It works only for smartphones.

    I downloaded third-party softwares like Cucusoft Netguard and ISP monitor. These too do not work.

    I use Windows 8.1. The connection that I have is “Ethernet Connection” and therefore, I cannot check data usage. Ethernet connections cannot be set as a metered connections in Windows 8.1.

    I would be grateful if you told me of any software which would work with D-Link DWR-910 (for laptop) on Ethernet connection so that I could check my data usage.

      My personal favorite was Networx but it is discontinued. You can see some worthy Networx alternatives here. And if you want to go with a paid option, try out DU Meter. Another option can be BWMeter.

      Do let me know which one did you select.

    I was using windows 8, but since I formatted my system and install windows 8.1 pro. I experienced high rate of Data charges, I off almost all network services, windows update off, install anitivirus disable background intelligent transfer services, but yet the charges are still high, I lost 2.6G just to open a web pages within 2 days, I think I try all possible ways, yet the data is consuming high, if I just open a page… after 30 secs 39MB will go. I try the information above yet no success, what should I do next?

    I’m using windows 10. I don’t even have the metered connection option on the page either under “Wifi’ or ‘Data usage’ or any other, I’m paying very expensively for data and the auto downloads is too expensive for me to manage

    I have win 10 upgrade and a really slow internet connection. Its arrogance for Win to assume the world is on fast internet and so they force everyone to auto update so of us physically cant operate like that. I cant find any of the above options to make my LAN internet connection metered so the internet for me is essentially dead cause win 10 is constantly downloading what are for me huge patches to their OS grrrrrrrrrr It may be back to 8.1 for me – with much hassle

    I dont know whats happening with my pc. I have 8.1 but it automatically turned all connections to metered and with the whole pc being metered it cant scan for wireless connection. I have followed these steps but nothing major changed. Guess ill just go to best buy…

    Everytime I click to turn the it “on” to allow download for metered connection, it won’t stay. When I go back to the setting, it’s back at the “off” position. How can I fix this? I’m unable to install my updates because of it.

    For what asinine reason can’t an Ethernet connection be set as metered? It’s still costing me money the same as if I connected via wireless using the same data quota. Unbelievable. Only Microsoft could come up with that. This shouldn’t even be relevant, except Microsoft wants to track everything you do in real-time. I’m amazed that the install process doesn’t request that M$ can stick a microscopic camera into your bodily orifii, which of course, would be on by default.
