Check the IP of the computer, it may have changed.

You are using internet connection sharing? You need to make sure the IP of the XBOX and the PC match, same subnet and gateway. To find the IP, open a command prompt on the computer and type in "ipconfig".

You may want to go through the ICS setup again.
