Can ping printer, can connect to web server on printer, cannot view printer shares or smb

This one has me stumped...
There is a network printer, a canon ir6000, after a period of time the computers on the network lose connection to the printer.
net view \\canon
i can ping the router and i can access the web interface on the printer,
however, no computers can print to it or view the shares
If i power cycle the printer the network shares work again and you can print to it or view the shares... however, the printer goes offline in a random amount of hours and must be power cycled again.
the only thing i can think of being wrong is something with the cabling, switch etc, however, i can ping it and view the web interface via a browser from any computer on the network so i know its connected...
thanks for the help in advance..
