Asking the same question as I did above, are you wireless? If so that could be your problem.

Are you running two different machines, or using the same machine at different locations?
In any case, the fact that it only happens at one location would naturally point to the problem being on your end.

Make sure ALL your drivers are up to date.

Clean the dust out of the machine(s) and make sure all fans are working properly.

The "other place" is probably taking a different "route" to get to SWTOR and there may be a flaky server/hub/router along the way..

SWTOR is very CPU intensive. If you are playing on a laptop, the combined heat from the CPU plus GPU may be more than the laptop's cooling system can handle, and it's getting flaky from overheating. After cleaning the dust out, be sure to place the laptop on a clean, flat surface so as not to obstruct air flow.

I do remember a thread where somebody swore blind that he knew better than me where his laptop's fans blew air out of when I advised him to never use the laptop on a soft surface that blocks the air intakes.

I remember a poster who was placing his laptop on the bed covers and wondered why it overheated.

hopefully you are playing wired, and if so you can get another network card for cheap to see if thats the problem. otherwise, could be switch/router/hub/modem.
