CenturyLink – less than full speed

Read some of these about ideas what to try to fix it:

“I have CenturyLink 940 Mbps fiber and I get the full speed as advertised to Ethernet-connected computers. Tests using the desktop apps generally return a faster result than browser-based tests.
Previously, I had an Asus AC3100 router and now I have a pfSense box.
Taking the CenturyLink modem out of the equation helped get both to full speed, as did make sure “cut through forwarding” was enabled on the Asus.
To get rid of the modem, most CenturyLink customers will have to enable VLAN tagging. Google “CenturyLink fiber VLAN tagging” and you’ll find plenty of information.
Good luck. We’ve been super happy with our CenturyLink fiber service.”

How to Uninstall Programs Using Command Prompt

Credits go to:

The traditional way of uninstalling a program on windows is by opening the system’s Control Panel and head on to the Programs and Features section. That is the usual procedure on early versions of Windows (XP, Vista & 7), while the versions (8 & 10) gives an easy way on navigating the Control Panel by right clicking the program on startup and click “Uninstall” option on the context menu.

Note that this procedure only works on programs that recognized as MSI-Based Applications (programs that was installed using Windows Installer). Some applications does not register on WMI default registry location upon installing, hence, wmic won’t be able to pull off all programs installed in your system when running the query. 
Moving on, here’s how to uninstall programs using command prompt in windows.

1. Open command prompt as administrator

2. Type wmic and press Enter, you will see a prompt wmic:root\cli>

3. Type product get name and press Enter. You will be prompted a list of MSI-Based programs installed on your computer. 

4. Type in product where name=”name of program” call uninstall and press Enter.

5. Type Y to confirm uninstalling the program, and then hit Enter.

Once the uninstalling is successful, you will be prompted a return value of 0. However, if you get the error No Instance(s) Available, it means that the program you are trying to uninstall is not recognized as MSI-based application or there’s no such product installed on your system. Be sure to double check your inputs if you have typed the program/product name accurately.
