    CenturyLink sucks in so many ways. I have a bonded line to my house, have been using a decent VDSL modem, the 5Ghz wifi recently decides it no longer wants to maintain a connection to devices, so I get sent a "new" modem that is an upgrade [no cost to me since its still under warranty] but this new modem wont block sites via the GUI Website Blocker tool. I have been through 5 representatives now. Only one of the representatives have been helpful but I got disconnected and now I cannot get transferred back to him unless I go through the 15k list of questions that I'm told "is the only to resolve my issue" I greatly despise using outsourced Tech support. If you cannot help me after I give an in depth dissertation of the issue just say so in understandable English and move me on to someone that can help me and can understand English.
     
    My only other option is to use Mediacom which by experience does have better service but is a more expensive service.
     
    Bleh...
     
    *edit
    I guess the one upside is Mediacom provides the basic cable modem, no bells or whistles and I can control the internet access with my own router. Century link provides modem/router and it sucks to add your own router.
     
    Original Modem: Actiontec C3000A
    "New" Modem: Zyxel C3000Z

    PSA ; please, don't run ANY type of cables on top of a heating element (in this case, an electric baseboard).
     
    I've had techs spend 2 days trying to fix a printer that would randomly stop showing up on the network.
     
    Unfortunately, it was all remote support, and the end user was completely useless (he had a hard time following directions to power cycle the printer).
     
    Today I was dispatched to help him out since it was a VIP user (top management).
     
    Turns out, he has an electric baseboard at the bottom of a window, and that happens to be where his work desk is ... All the cables (Ethernet, HDMI, power brick for his laptop) we're sitting ON TOP of the baseboard. Both Ethernet cables were burnt to a crisp (literally, B U R N T !!!)
     
    So I spent an hour fixing someone else's mistake, under a desk, eating dust and burnt Ethernet cable particles. Made sure all the cables were routed properly and away from the baseboard.

    I try to drop off from time to time, but seeing as I'm getting 100+ notifications every time, it's a bit hard to keep up, so sorry if I haven't replied to you guys, not ignoring you, just too busy these past weeks.
