This I think increases the likelihood of the following:

It depends... if the affected team all sit behind the malfunctioning 
switch, then yes. If the team memebers sit close to each others then 
this is more likely than if they were sitting scattered around the 
office - the IT staff there could tell.

If they have a laptop, then the next time the problem appears they could 
walk to a different part of the office (somewhere where this problem has 
not occurred) and try again. If they have just desktops they could try 
with a long ethernet cable.
