Problems like this can be tricky. I have seen similar things happen if the IP address of a machine conflicts with something else on the network.

If you are using DHCP to get the IP address, try manually assigning a static IP address that you know is safe to the machine via the /etc/network/interfaces file. Mine looks something like this (the original dhcp line is commented out):

Code:
# The primary network interface
allow-hotplug enp2s0
#iface enp2s0 inet dhcp
iface enp2s0 inet static
	address 192.168.1.33
	netmask 255.255.255.0
	gateway 192.168.1.1
