Canon printer dropping out of the network intermittent

I have a work group of 8 computers:
2 pc clones running windows 7 home
2 all in one hp pc’s running on windows 7 pro
1 clone running windows 7 ultimate
3 clone pc’s running windows 7 pro
I recently changed my DSL modem because the phone company determined it was damaged, the network connection runs from the modem to an 8 port switch and from the switch to the computers.
After I replaced the modem the network printer keep getting disconnected from de network from time to time, it may work for 3 to 4 hour without problems then it loses connection, if I ping the address it replay with a time out then I keep doing a ping until it replays correctly. All my computer have static IP’s same goes for the printer, please help ASAP I can’t correct the issue. I think I tried it all
