Mini+ pauses randomly

I recently noticed my Mini+ randomly pausing for a split second during prints.  I also realized that the scrolling filename at the top of the display screen & the "Printing Time #h #m #s" also pauses when this occurs.  

Any ideas what might be happening? 

Appreciate any suggestions,

If I would notice some odd behavior:
-do I have latest firmware?
-make "Reset to factory default" on Mini
-do I have latest slicer version?
-then create small piece in slicer, create G-code at default settings, print it and observe if issue has gone. That is, don't use some G-code that you downloaded from somewhere!

Fixed it!

I verified settings and firmware as BogdanH suggested above and all was good.  I then realized it was happening during bed leveling as well, so I figured its not a file or G-code issue, but maybe this is an incorrect assumption?

I then wanted to start with bare minimum connections to the printer and removed them one at time - there's only USB and ethernet - so I removed the ethernet connection and bingo!  It stopped pausing.

I do have quite a bit of stuff on my network so I guess that could be creating issues.  I don't use the web interface anyways, so I must have left it connected after checking it out a few months back.

Either way, I'm glad its resolved and hopefully this may help others with the same or similar issues.  If I figure out why the network was causing this issue I'll add it here.

That's a good approach at searching for troublemaker. Thank you for reporting your finding
