Download speed starts high then drops

Power cycling your router is the first thing I’d do. It can be as easy as unplugging it, waiting 10 seconds, and then plugging it back in. Run another speed test on your machine after about a minute.
You might also try changing the way your device communicates with the router. If it’s a wireless link, try connecting it to the router via network cable and running another speed test; if it’s a wired connection, try using a wireless adapter. This allows us to decide whether the problem is with the link.
Fix: origin dowload speed drops to 0
You’re on the internet. It’s a breeze to navigate, with pages loading easily. Then you launch a download, and what was once a lightning-fast Internet connection becomes a dial-up experience. What went wrong?
This, believe it or not, is a normal phenomenon. If you’re like me, you have a high-speed Internet connection via fiber, DSL, or cable modem that is directly connected to your device. You probably use file-sharing software on a daily basis as well. This results in slow Web surfing, which you can quickly find out because the speed of your Web browsing returns to normal as soon as you avoid using any file sharing applications.
Queues at your ISP are to blame for the sluggishness (or your modem). Your Internet speed is limited by your ISP either at the modem or at the router assigned to your modem. Long queues of pending information build up in your router/modem because information can’t come in as quickly as it could.
The solution to queues, as counterintuitive as it might seem, is to restrict the rate at which information enters your device, directly on your computer. You can have almost-normal Web browsing speeds coupled with fast downloads by using a clever combination of bandwidth limitation and outbound package prioritization.
How to fix steam game slow download speed (quick
Well, guess what? It happened again 2 minutes after I posted my previous response. It’s only been about an hour after it limped back to life, but it’s still struggling to show 0.19 up. Yes, indeed. Socket evaluation My main computer, which I’m using right now, is wired in, so yes, everything is affected when it goes down, and no, nothing turns on or ‘boots up’ when the random drops occur. I’m hoping there’s enough room on the server now for me to post this response!!
Thank you, Michelle.
Must just say, maybe it’s nothing, but when my phone and internet went totally dead a few months ago, an engineer went to the street junction box at the time and noticed both of my wires to the house completely disconnected from the grid. We were back up and running the next day after he replugged them. It seems odd that on that particular day, someone had disconnected just my two wires and left them in that state. Is it likely that an engineer was aware of a problem with my wires and wanted to repair it at the time (but didn’t)? I’m wondering if my house has a card or something that needs to be replaced. I’m just wondering if it turns out to be an ongoing issue that was never resolved.

I’ve never had a problem like this before, and I’m not sure what’s going on. I mainly download with the real-debrid plugin, and although my speed was initially maxed out (23MBps), it has now fallen to about 1MBps and is throttled at that speed. I tried increasing and decreasing the maximum number of parts per download, but nothing worked.
Edit: Further testing suggests that this could be linked to real-debrid; not sure whether it’s because of the api or the plugin itself, but when I tried to download some mega.nz hosted files using the premium account, the download began at 23MBps and fell to 3-4 MBps after about 2 minutes; when I tried to download the same files without the premium account, the download started at 23MBps and stayed at 23MBps until the end…
Firewall/anti-virus software may be to blame, as they buffer the update first and then turn to live transport later. And the larger buffer results in a faster transfer speed at first, before slowing down to the real download speed.
I did ask for support on RD’s forum, but it turned out to be a big mistake. After explaining my situation, the administrator offered a few test links and stated that there should be no problems downloading them, which there weren’t; in reality, most of the links maxed out my connection, but the problem remained; three other users reported similar problems (not sure if the root of the problem is the same). I took some screenshots with network activity graphs to provide more comprehensive feedback because the admin didn’t react. If you want to take a look at the issue, here are the photos. As a result, my post was censored and I was barred from the site… Without any warning or clarification, they simply ignored the entire issue. I’m really unhappy with their customer service.
