Before I started digging through tons of stuff, the first thing I would do is completely reinitialize the system, shutdown everything, modem, router, computers, server.

Then restart and see if the issue is still there.
It could just be garbage data stuck in the line buffers.

No it was likely just as I said, garbage in the buffers.
It happens especially when a connected device is left running uninterrupted for an extended period of time.
Which is generally true of both routers and modems.
