Id install a different NIC, maybe a broadcom based one.

Seems like you have have a problem with this particular NIC.  ::)

Found this thread where people present similar issues with Intel I218-V.

Even though the issues seemed to happen after I upgraded to DIR-890L the issue indeed seems to be the I218-V NIC on the Asus Z97-Pro Motherboard.

When I started out I used the latest version of the driver available from Microsoft (downloaded automatically through Windows 10). I had made sure repeatedly that I used the latest driver, and even tried the older official driver from ASUS for the Z97-Pro Motherboard, which is older than the one provided by Windows 10.

After digging deeper there was a later driver directly from Intels website v21.1.

After switching to this driver speeds are stable and have stayed stable for 2 days.

I can confirm this fix in my case.  When I switched to this router, my download speed dropped from 170 to 6.
I have that intel 1218-V NIC and was using the standard microsoft driver.
I switched to the latest intel driver and speed problem went away.

Glad you found the fix. usually MS standard drivers are not as good as OEM native drivers.

Enjoy.  ;)
