    It IS a big update. Took a while. But no problems. One computer is my desktop that I built myself and the other computer is a Windows tablet.

    Both updated and both are working great.

    Has not been service packs since 2011 and Windows 7.

    There is a content update of Windows 10 every 6 months with the latest being version 2004.

    I am taking advantage of a Win10 bug/feature. Apparently if your workstation is directly connected to your modem (instead of using WiFi), Win10 does not consider you connected to the Internet. Which means that it never bothers to even check for updates. If I want my workstations updated, I have to do it manually. Which I consider preferable.
    Eh? No... Windows always checks for updates. If you can set metered connections on WiFi to stop update downloads. On ethernet you can not. Only way to stop updates is to disable Windows update or use a 3rd party app to do it. To me it sounds like your installation is partially corrupted or infected with a virus, if you have not done the update disabling.

    Win10 only checks for updates when it recognizes an Internet connection. If Win10 has a problem with detecting a network adapter it will not connect to the Internet. However, you can still create a dial-up connection and connect to the Internet. Win10 will not use a dial-up connection to scan for updates, it only uses a network connection. Here is more information on the bug/feature.

    Pretty old problem mostly and I have never encountered it. Got quite a few Realtek chips running on motherboards.

    And it's the network it can't find, not the Internet. Quite significant difference.

    That is true, technically it is the network that Win10 is not locating. No network connection, no Internet connection. Because Microsoft is too stupid to know that the Internet can still be connected via DSL directly and doesn't require a network connection.

    I can only get DSL in my neck of the woods, and my Win10 does not show an Ethernet connection, but it does show my dail-up Internet connection. Which Win10 will not use to check for updates. I have to update my PC manually. Which I prefer.

    Actually it does know. DSL or as we call it ADSL is/was common in Europe before fiber, and depending on the DSL router and how the connection was set up in Windows, you can/could set it as a metered connection, because it thinks it is dial up (technically speaking). It is however not exactly standard to say the least Windows 10 Version 2004, but it aint a bug. I have removed quite a few of these connection types over the years going back to Windows 95 mostly due to customer confusion when moving the laptop to a new location.

    I have a property is a rural community that has a Verizon DSL connection (~2 Mbps), that will shortly be replaced by fiber. It's been terrible service with intermittent losses.

    My problem with Win10 2004 has been that my Win10 Pro desktop can't up date without the computer shutting off completely during the process. My Win10 Home laptop updated without a problem.

    Odd.. normally with these feature updates it does have to restart at least once. Why your Win10 Home did not, well that is odd, because mine did.
