I see one possibility that explains both the key change and the 
connection resets:

You installed a new server and used an IP address that was already in 
use on another server.  That's why you already had an SSH key for that 
address.  The connection resets occur when the client you're using to 
connect updates its ARP table and swaps from the MAC address on the new 
host to the MAC address on the old host (or visa versa).
