Sometimes it may be the network that is having issues, so if the network is down than it won't be trying to search for your Ip address.

Try inputting the IP address manually along with the DNS servers.

Disable Media Server Settings in [Network Settings], this causes the router to limit or disconnect all connections connected to it.
