Does it respond to ping?
Can you use wireshark or another tool on the same network segment (same switch) in promiscuous mode, i.e. capture all packets, not only those intended to the observer?
Can you connect physically to raspberrypi and check:
- /var/log/syslog
- /etc/ssh/sshd_config
- ifconfig -a
- uname -a
- /etc/issue

Hint: you have an SD card as storage, right? If you can't repair the network, you can:
- save all these symptoms to the sd card
- shutdown pi
- insert the sd card to your notebook/desktop and send the symptoms from there.

Not broken just down. Or something changed in network config, e.g. received a different IP from dhcp server. Can you check the list of clients of your dhcp server? (in my home office, it's simply the wifi router)

Simplest and most effective way would be to connect physically and check. Right now it has occurred to me that you'd need to attach a keyboard (usb should do) and a display-- but this thing has no option to attach a display, eh? Well then, can you power it off, remove the sdcard and check its contents (don't know about file system type; best would be to use a linux desktop for this). If you can send us the requested files (not the commands per se) then maybe we can propel this forward

Or, if you have nothing to lose, reinstall:
- make a backup of your sdcard contents (you'll be able to copy everything back to pi once network will be up)
- download a brand new OS image:
http://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads
- write it to the sd card as written on the page (use formatter and unzip package)
- Pi should be able to boot afterwards.
- Once network is up, recover everything you needed from the backup.

Hello Magento: how about just rebooting the RPI? Did you try that? Disconnect and connect power again, knowing that it may damage your SD card...

@Surrano - "usb should do"? RPI only has USB available for attaching keyboard, no others. And "but this thing has no option to attach a display"? RPI has HDMI -> display.
