[Samba] Stable Network Down

I've had a stable Samba-run LAN, with some active shares, for several
months, with my PC and laptop also gaining access to the Internet
through the Samba server. However, this morning, when I booted up my
Samba server, I had no LAN--neither my PC nor my laptop could connect to
any share. However, both still had access to the Internet.
I confirmed that smb, named, winbindd, et al., were running on the Samba
server, and I could find nothing wrong, with a search limited by my
limited knowledge. Associated with this problem (at least in time), I
could not log in to SWAT: http://localhost:901 simply sat and churned
for several minutes, until I canceled the attempt.
I eventually cleared the problem by rebooting the Samba
server--everything is running properly, now. However, rebooting seems
excessive. In future, what sorts of things typically go wrong to produce
this type of failure? For what should I be looking?
I don’t give ‘em hell. I just tell the truth on ‘em, and they think it’s hell.
