I was all excited about finally taking my mesh network out of the equation by moving my computer so I can run ethernet directly, only about 15-20 feet now. Before my router was plugged into a Google mesh node which then communicated to a mesh node across the house next to my computer, which I was plugged into with an ethernet cable. This connection was rock solid, but brought my 1000/1000/3 ping to about 300/300/20 ping.

Since moving directly to plugging into the router, my computer will randomly drop connection for 1-10 minutes multiple times per hour. Very frustrating. Finally downloaded Wireshark and made some recordings, hope someone can help me out analyzing them.

I don't have enough points to upload a file yet, but here's a screenshot of Wireshark:

I assume those "port numbers reused" is the issue as like 50% of the files are these errors, but am not sure how to translate that into something to fix.

Looks like a crappy connector somewhere.

@Jaap I've tried switching ports on the router, trying a different cable, and using a ethernet to USB converter and it still persists. Don't think it's a port issue.

The "port reused" is the client trying to connect. Do you see any errors on the client or router interface? Can you ping your gateway during a failure?

Hey sorry just saw this response. By ping your gateway during a failure do you mean pinging the IP address I use to log in and change router settings? I'll try that next time it goes down and see what happens. I do know that when the internet is down I can still access IP addresses on the network, such as a RaspPi I'm using to run a 3D printer.
