Is it getting the correct IP address? Maybe the printer needs to be re-configured if it was static before.

Can you reach printer with IP Address?

Go into the Router settings and then go to the wireless setup and look for the SSID (its the routers wireless connection name) and there would be a password (a network key or shared key). There may be an automatic "SSID broadcast" to look for wireless devices or may need to initiate that action.

To get to the Router setup you typically enter 0r (it could also be or but that is not as common) in the address bar of your Internet Explorer browser.
See if you can get to this step. Then post back.

Also what brand and model is your Router.

Lastly it may only take reinstalling the printer driver. Canon iR2230 Driver Download - Support Canon But I'd check the Router settings first.

All you have to do is go and change the ip in the printer to ip of the router and install driver.
