Last night, I reinstalled Plex jail. All the machines (tv, mac, win) connected fine and were able to play a movie.

Early this morning, the TV and Macbook did not have a connection to the server.

I downloaded the Plex client for Macbook, but it too failed to connect.

Edit: After checking Macbook connection again, an hour later, it reconnected.
Edit: 30mins later, the Mackbook lost connection again.
Edit: An hour or so later, the Macbook connected again.

TV still has no connection to the Plex server. I tried wired and wireless connections. No luck.
Edit: After a while it reconnected.

Windows machine is the only machine that stays connected to the Plex server.

All machines have 192.168.4.x.
Plex server is 192.168.4.x
