That was better explanation, never had exactly this error myself only
your typical flaky wifi that goes down for some seconds .

Some process of elimination to exclude some of the involved network
devices ? To fault trace .

For example in my network the internet router is actually not used as a
switch it's conected to one of my switches and the wired server and all
of wired players use static IP so they don't need my router to function
so it can go down or be rebooted without a hitch . Player and server
talks trough the switches. The switches are these blue sheet metal case
semi pro netgear types , no shiny consumer variant with fancy plastic
case and power saving and Eco features ....
