Buffering and loosing connection to Roku Ultra with Netflix

This is a Roku Ultra Ethernet wire connected to TP-Link Router C9.

Problem started about 6 weeks ago after flawless streaming for years. While watching Netflix only and after watching about 30 min. Netflix starts buffering and stops, then gives me a choice of "Try again of reestablish connection." If I do either, it connects again but it may or not buffer and disconnects.

This only happens when watching Netflix

Have you tried reinstalling the channel?

Remove the channel.

Restart the Roku (Settings > System > System restart).  This makes sure the Roku's memory is cleared so you can be assured of a complete reinstall of the channel.

Reinstall the channel from the channel store.  Note that it will install to the bottom of your Roku channel grid.

You will then need to log this new installation into your Netflix account.
