Oh wow!

Do you have a lot of individual devices on your network? I had a similar issue recently with the same model of router after installing an array of smart home devices. Slower speeds than my ISP's plan, intermittent slowdowns and disconnects that didn't make any sense, and I confirmed with the ISP that the problem was on my end.

After some more monitoring/troubleshooting I ended up narrowing it down to the router and replaced it with an A20 which solved the issue. As best I can tell the router simply couldn't negotiate the large number of devices on the network and was probably juggling them based on some sort of automatic prioritizing, intermittently dropping packets and/or the connection entirely at random intervals.
