Can no longer connect?

Specs: Windows XP Professional, 2.392 GHz / 1021 MB
OK, so I have my computer set up with a computer in my basement, my normal computer runs XP Professional and my Basement Computer runs Windows 98FE. Everything has been working fine for months, sending files, printing stuff, all through the server. Then one day it just stopped working, I cannot figure out why... All my settings are configured properly AND the internet is working properly, I am frustrated because I want to download a big file and send it to the basement computer, but it won't connect and I don't want to use up my Hard Drive space upstairs, what should I do?

It seems to work all of a sudden, but I just still want to know if any of you more nerdy nerds than I am myself can explain why it might have happened?

What couldn't connect to what? You didn't explain that besides saying you had no connection.

I connect the computers as a network through internet connection so that I can easily swap files with them.

No i meant when it fails, are you not able to access the internet? Or the computer? Is it both computers or just one of them?

Can you ping the 98 machine?

Both computers pinged successfully. I think it was just a fluke as I have not had the problem since.
