is the firewall enabled on your laptop? Pinging should be generally possible but it's worth a try. Incoming traffic has to be enabled on your FTP ports on PC side. If your firewall is enabled I would disable it completely and test FTP access again. I know that you said it worked before but depending on your OS there may have been some firewall changes depending on upgrades/patches of your OS.
