Just for yucks, try swapping out the router(s) between them.
Or, check for marginal cabling (or something that -almost-
fell out, perhaps).

This is smelling like a hardware problem to me, especially given the
flakiness and your comment that it's now "slow", although perhaps
not---does /etc/fstab specify mount options that you're not specifying
in your by-hand mount?  That might either explain the "slow" (if it
specs larger rsize/wsize etc) or the failure (if it's using options
that aren't working any more and aren't the default).

Also, of course, make sure that /etc/fstab didn't get trashed
somehow; take a look in a text editor that will show possibly-
nonprinting characters.
