can't be found how? Are you just trying to open them from your File > Open Recent menu or actually trying to find them manually using the "local hosts" option under File > Open Remote dialog?
If you type in the address of your server into the address bar in safari on the client side, what comes up?
Are you running filemaker server? Or are you hosting peer to peer?
Does the new modem have a router feature that never got turned off that might be conflicting?

I'm not sure how the modem replacement could have been involved, but
somehow the port forwarding I had set up on my Airport Extreme had been
altered. The port settings still had the forwarding information, but the
DHCP Reservation pointing to the LAN IP was gone. Go figure.
So, after lots of research and troubleshooting, the remedy was a quick fix
to the port mapping/forwarding so that the files could be accessed remotely.
PS - I did follow up with FileMaker Support this afternoon and was told that changing out a cable modem can disrupt the port forwarding needed for FM Server. So, even though I muddled through things, it turns out my resolution was the correct one.
I think it's nest to do the port forwarding on the modem and use the router as a pass through or whatever it's called.
