Can't connect to proxmox while without internet

I have proxmox running on a pc connected directly to my router hardwired.
The router also provides the wifi connection to the mac that I'm trying to connect to proxmox from, so everything is on the same network (just proxmox is hardwired, mac is on wifi).
The router is an Asus Blue Cave.
My internet provider is Google Fiber, and it's currently experiencing an outage. This seems to have somehow affected my local connection to proxmox and the VMs running on it, but I have not been able to figure out what exactly is causing the issue.

When I try connecting to the proxmox web interface at from the mac's browser, the proxmox interface will sometimes load, but login just fails (POST response NS_BINDING_ABORTED) , or the interface fails to load altogether.

Trying to ssh to proxmox results in "client_loop: send disconnect: Broken pipe"

I'm at a bit of a loss as to why I can't access it since it's all local and the internet outage should not be affecting it.

Any help is appreciated.
I restarted the pc running proxmox and it seems to be working now.
No idea why losing internet connection caused the connection issues.
