I had a router some time back that would drop packets. I solved it by 
using a switch for the internal traffic and only used one port from the 
router, which connected to the switch, and the switch connected to the 
other devices. However the problem it caused was pixellated recordings, 
not a backend crashing. So I suspect some other issue in your case.
