    Check Windows Update or the manufactuers website for updated drivers for the IEEE1394 network kit. Or if new drivers were installed recently (or automatically with Automaitic Windows Updates), try rolling back the driver in the device manager.

    Was any other communications/network software or hardware configured before it stopped working (other NIC cards, USB broadband modems, etc)
