At least four different ports on a switch were affected.  I know
that not from swapping cables but from trying other ends.  Now it is
too late to check although it is difficult to imagine why troubles
would be so selective but maybe.  That static IP assignments worked
just fine did not help in a diagnosis.  I realized eventually that
over-the-air packets do not travel through this piece of hardware.
Too late now.  After a switch reset everything works as expected.
