Well, something clearly has changed.
What ssh client is this? Putty can be a little silent sometimes.
What sshd? openssh, ssh.com, ...?
Do you get a login prompt and auth fails or do you just get nothing?
Can you telnet to the ssh port on that machine? You should get soemthing
like this if it can connect to the port.
gavin at mybox gavin> telnet somebox ssh
Connected to somebox
Escape character is '^]'.

The issues I've generally come across with sshd are:
1. tcp wrappers? If it's openssh it likely uses tcp wrappers, ie needs to
be allowed in /etc/hosts.allow, could something have changed here?
2. the server key has changed. If the server host key changed and the
client has the old key it might refuse to connect depending on the client
3. Firewall issues.
