Yesterday I downloaded a minecraft_server.jar to my laptop. I configured it, started it (via a .bat) and me and my brother played on it (using the laptop as the 'server' and me and him on different computers).

Now today, I want to play on the same server with absolutely nothing changed, and I suddenly can't log into the server. On the laptop, it starts up fine with no errors, but I can't connect on both my computer and my brothers computer.

You need to give more details, such as what error.

The server starts up with no errors, and when I try to join the server, the connection is timed out.

Your static ip might have changed. With that i mean the IP you portforwarded. So go to command prompt and do /ipconfig and look for the IPv6 and see if it changed, and if it indeed has changed you need to portforward it again.

The weird thing is that I didn't need to port forward before; me and him are in the same house, using the same network. I'm unable to 'Open to LAN', so I did a server on a separate computer (the laptop) instead.
