you have two interfaces. Can you connect to both via ssh or just to one?
If you have to restart the interface you are connected to, you will
always lose your ssh connection.

I do not use DHCP on my own networks for a simple reason. If the
network has to be restarted, the interface(s) get(s) new IP addresses
depending on the settings of the DHCP server. If you did not get new
addresses, it seems that your DHCP client did not restart.
That you have had to kill all dhclients on the console hints that it
did not notice that the interfaces have been restarted.
If possible, get either rid of DHCP or set the DHCP server so that a
specific MAC address gets always the same IP number. If things go real
bad then, you can temporarily set a fixed IP address then.
