It's working today, so it must have been a DWC not connected issue. Thanks for your help.

RE: [Solved] Duet Ethernet - DWC consistently loses connection
Looks like a cable issue. Borrowed one from another system, and now DWC stays connected (over the last couple hours). New CAT6 cables on order.
[Solved] Duet Ethernet - DWC consistently loses connection
Duet Ethernet 1.02: DWC connects on startup, and stays connected for about two minutes, or so, then loses connection. This happens whether PC or Mac is connected to network via wireless or wired. Resetting (STOP) the Duet restores the connection for another couple of minutes.
No other machines lose connection on the network and there are no address conflicts. Interference is unlikely; although, changing the cat5 cable might be worth a try. I'll order one in.
A connected PanelDue always stays up, but, of course, it's directly wired to the Duet.
RE: Panel Due 7i Cooling?
I was looking at an existing low profile design enclosure that had no venting, but I've found a derivative design that includes venting, but not low profile. Ten minutes with Tinkercad and I now have a low profile design with venting. It's on the printer, as I write.
I also did want to know the details about cooling for general reference. This is a Voron build I'm working on, and the PD7i sits just in front of the front door of a heated chamber, so I was concerned about originally having no cooling. Now, with the added vents to the enclosure I'm using, and from your comments, I will assume all is fine.
Thanks for your help.
