it zypper's?

Both.

There is a network problem, that affects some users, and zypper doesn't cope nicely with it. But notice that he talks of zypper and menus, so he is not using zypper. He is probably using YaST software module. Or rather, was, he had abandoned for smart, that has its own can of worms.

The options to configure the different timeouts and retrying strategies zypper uses are unknown. Per Cristian's comment, you can configure the downloading behaviour in /root/.curlrc, but this is not even mentioned in zypper's man page.
