Hi Marshall, welcome to the forums.

Does this happen with ALL torrent as I have had the same issue recently but I managed to pin it down to bad seeds & seeds dropping out.

Best way to test is to try a torrent that has an silly amount of seeds, but 1 that you know is healthy/real.

Have you tried resetting your router? Some ISP's send updates down the line (with no notification) and it can cause slowdown or even periodic disconnection. I had to reset the GF mum's router which worked like a charm.

I had almost the same problem before and i found a number on the admin page of my router that sets how often the ip changes. It vas set to 2 hours and i changed it to the maximum (about 2000 h). That solved my problem.
