Server stops responding on occasion

Occasionally (like once a week or so) the server stops responding to any clients (including web), however it appears that the server is still performing other actions like recording TV. Restarting the plex service restores functionality. Any ideas on where to start looking? Running on Freenas in it's own jail. Thanks in advance!

Two things I do that seem to prevent this for me. First, I restart the PMS server daily. Since I run it on Windows, I have an automated process that handles this daily early in the morning. Second, I try to power cycle my Router once a week. Both of these actions seem to keep the network functioning as it should.

I guess that could be an option, although I'd like to figure out what causes it in the first place.
