I wonder if this is because its IP address is being changed. I would
recommend finding a way to give this guy a static IP address, or
finding a way for zero-config (aka Bonjour) printing to be activated.
It may require installing software on the computers. Of course, this
could all be true already, and it may be that it goes to sleep, and
the router doesn't have the means of waking it back up. But honestly,
I have so many problems with so many printers with waking that I'm not
surprised at their problems. ;-)
