MySql - Lost Connection to mySql during query

Hi,

I am supporting an application written in VB.net with MySql 5.0 as a backend
Recently  the application started to give error messages stating "Lost Connection to MySQL server during query"

This error can popup every then and now during any query, regardless of the  anything - just random....

I have changed timeouts, packetsizes - In short tried any suggestions that I could find on the MySql web site and other web resources

I have strong feeling that this is networking issue but I have no experience in troubleshooting such issues so I am lost at this point and need your help.

Any suggestions on what could be done?
Please note that this is production database and I am very limited in what I can do with it (at least I will need some good reasons to restart mySql or such things)

Please help!!!
