Make sure the printer IP is not in conflict with another IP address on the network.  I experienced something similar.  The printer would seem to work sometimes and other times it would show as unable to connect.  Make sure you are using the correct printer driver as well.  Contact the vendor to ensure you are using the correct driver.
