can not get DHCP IP from wireless router for cannon imageclass laser printer

Dear Sir/Madam:

I have used this machine for more than 2 years. From some times ago,

I found the printer could not get IP from my wireless router. the following is what I have done and questions


1. at the beginning, when I found this machine can not get IP (mine is 10.0.0.#), the machine default is

   I forced the machine to reset, after resetting , it could get IP from my router.

 2. but after getting IP from above 1, once the machine gets idle and gets to energy save mode.   when I start printing again, I found that IP , got from my router , get back to the machine default

3. after I reset a couple of times, still could not get IP from the router.


4. I went to the machine manual and try to set wired connection with DHCP enable, 

  still not work


5. I reset the router , the printer still could not get IP


at the begining, reseting the machine sometimes, works, after a while, resetting does not work at all


my questions are


6. my printer now basic could not get IP from the  router. how could I set the printer back to manufacture default?

(other PCs have no problems to get IP from the router, it means that the router works fine)

7. do you have any idea to help me.
