To reset the factory defaults for the 2330dn, follow this procedure:
1. Power off the printer
2. Press and hold the "check" and "right" buttons while powering on the printer. CONTINUE to HOLD these buttons until the memory config is displayed, then you can release.

You are now in the "Configuration Menu"
3. Press the "right" button until Factory Defaults is displayed, then press the "check" button.
4. Using the "right" or "left" buttons, select Restore Base (Base Printer defaults) or Restore STD Net (Standard Network port defaults), then press the "check" button.

The printer will pause, then display "Submitting Changes", then restart.

Use Reset to Factory Defaults in the General Settings Menu
It will then switch to DHCP and you can print out the network settings
