I've fixed my SQL Server connection problem, but I have no idea why it happened in the first place ...

I went right back to basics, and trying pinging the Dev server (my Desktop PC) ... and it was really slow, 25ms, or sometimes greater and outside the ping timeout.
Pinging the NAS was 2ms or less, reliable and solid.

So ... something there then, despite my internet connection being fine and dandy, and my PC unchanged. (Except for the 1903 update, but the problem was there before and after that, so that's not the cause.)

Ping the NAS from the desktop - <2ms
Ping the surface from the desktop >25ms.

Hang on a moment ...
Ping Desky from surface: >25ms and unreliable.
Ping Desky IP from surface: <2ms and solid.
Ping Surface from desky: >25ms and unreliable.
Ping Surface IP from desky: <2ms and solid.

Hmmm ... DHCP? DNS? Is everything I do going via the internet DNS? OMG | :OMG:

The NAS defines it's own static IP ... interesting.
Let's try an experiment. Hunt internet, give up, delve into bowels of router config ... Ah! "DHCP Reservation". Set two entries: MAC of Desky, MAC of Surface. IP's 99, and 98 respectively.
Reboot them.
Ping Desky from surface: <2ms and solid.
Ping Desky IP from surface: <2ms and solid.
Ping Surface from desky: <2ms and solid.
Ping Surface IP from desky: <2ms and solid.

SSMS: Desky instance, username password: straight in.

ELEPHANTing YES!

I can only assume that the mix of Home and Pro on the network confused something, or the DNS /DHCP service is a bit odd - but it all works now!
