LAN play on LAN-hosted server kicks player when Internet connection drops

Game mode: Online private (internal network)
Type of issue: Bug
Server type: PvE
Region: EU, but shouldn’t matter
Mods?: irrelevant
Edition: Steam

Bug Description:

Booted from self-hosted server on internal network due to ISP being flaky.

Steam already validated my addons etc. booting someone from a self hosted server on a LAN because internet connection drops for a few minutes should not be a thing that happens.

Steps to Reproduce:

Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. Please be as detailed as possible; the more details, the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:

  1. run self hosted server on LAN
  2. connect to said self hosted server
  3. unplug ISP network cable (or otherwise simulate and internet connection failure, that doesn’t impair LAN functionality in any fashion)
  4. game kicks you out because you’re no longer connected to the internet, even though connection to the actual server is perfectly fine.
