Just because ifconfig shows ethX up doesn't actually mean that is is up. Run mii-tool as root when the problem occurs, this will tell you if the link is ok. If not then your switch/hub is to blame.
Then the usual, can you ping the box, ssh/telnet to it etc? If ssh is ok then why not use pscp or a graphical sftp client?
Have you disabled any firewalling that you have in place. (iptables -L or ipchains -L will list the chains/tables). Then ip[chains|tables] -F to flush the tables/chains.
