I thought this was only me, but apparently there are other users who have noticed that somewhere in the last few Microsoft Updates, the option to set a wi-fi connection as metered has been removed. Fortunately, you can still set/unset this option from the command line. For details, and a vbScript option to make it idiot proof please see this thread. This may also work for Ethernet (cabled) interfaces although I have not tried it because I never use a cabled connection.
