We took over a small company that is using a Cisco ASA 5505 and we've noticed that their internet speeds we're slow.
They had their ISP come in and test and directly from the modem they are getting 200mbps down which is what they should get.
When we connect to the firewall then they are only getting 20mbps down.
I know that the 5505 probably isn't going to get 200mbps but shouldn't it be better than 20?  

I'm not an expert on this firewall so I'm not really sure where to look to see if there are any policies that could be causing this or what to look for next. I've tried using different ports on the firewall as well. Speeds are set to auto but I did also try manually setting them but that didn't change anything. Any help on what to check would be appreciated.

I can send any logs and configs as requested.

Thank you!!
