Probably what has happened is that the IP address on the printer has changed.  If you look on a pc at the port settings for the printer you should see what the IP address should be.  

You could at this stage print out a configuration sheet from the printer which would show the current IP address of it.  I wouldn't advise setting the pc to match this, because it may change again and you'd need to do this every time, on every pc.

A better way is using the control panel on the printer itself, set the IP address up manually (not using DHCP).  Make sure the Subnet mask is set correctly too.

I have solved the issue.  Turns out that McAfee was blocking it.  I don't know how that happened or why but after unblocking it in McAfee it works fine.
