    We've upgraded our internet to 500Mbps and my computer only recieves 180Mbps.
    My internet provider came out and tested the speed on this cable on his laptop and it came 470Mbps he said my computer was slow as it showed in task manager 100% CPU utilization at 2.7GHz memory at 3.4GB
    Any ideas?
    will upgrading to ssd will help

    My Specs:
    Windows 10
    Asus R558U
    4Gb Ram
    GeForce 930M 2GB
    Intel Core i5-6200U upto 2.8
    1Tb HDDGHz

    Just out of curiosity, in what way(s) are you hurt by the "slow" 180 Mbps download?

    Disk reads and writes should be much faster with an SSD compared to a hard drive.

    You appear to have an ASUS R558U laptop.
    It appears to have Realtek 10/100/1000 Mbps ethernet.
    It appears to have Qualcomm Atheros or Realtek 802.11b/g/n wireless.

    Are you getting a 180 Mbps speed with ethernet or wireless or both?
    Have you checked the settings for each device in its Device Manager properties settings?
