I have to say I have noticed some networking improvements with 2.11, compared to 2.10.
Still, I'm noticing more of a problem with Clients switching from Working to Ready for no apparent reason.
I used to think it mostly occurred with Navigation changes and possibly Undo/Redo, but now it seems more prevalent with any changes.

I have stated previously that although a client is marked as Ready it is in fact Working - as far as Progress Bar and Task Manager are any indication. That seems to be the case still, but the work being done by Client (in this situation) isn't being communicated to Server.

From past experience I can say that sometimes Disconnect/Connect Client often gets it Working again. Mostly, it's just easier to work from the Server end.
In some cases it's enough to click Render (up to several times) to get everything Working again.
Failing that, Stop Server and Launch again and restart Render seems most efficacious.

Thank you for your attention.

I have to say, it is getting a little frustrating.
As said, clicking Render again as often as necessary often fixes the problem. It doesn't seem to (thinking 10x Render enough) be sufficient in this case:

A couple of updates:

Another example where repeatedly clicking Render fails to set Clients to Working. Stop and relaunch Server, then start Render again works fine.
I find it of interest because the same settings, except with the camera at a greater distance, haven't caused so much problem. And, the closer I move in the worse it seems to get.

Only once have I seen Clients start working while Server already Rendering. I mean, normally they don't start until rendering is started again after connecting.
In this case they started working immediately upon connection. But, both clients produced the same 'error' as illustrated in the attachment.
