    Have a network all-in-one and several PCs on a network. Everything working fine. About 3 weeks ago, one computer suddenly cannot scan to that PC. All others are fine. Affected PC can still print to the AIO, but if you try to scan to it, you get a TX error. Rebooting the PC allows the scanning to work, but 6-12 hours later, the same problem is back. When it loses the connection is not consistent. Usually, it is lost overnight, but not always. Rebooting restores the connection, and it usually makes it to the end of the workday, but not always. I have tried disabling the firewall with no effect. I have deleted and rebuilt the user path on the AIO. Always the same result. It works, and then stops.

    To me, that sounds like a dhcp issue. Does that machine have a static or dynamic IP assigned?

    Can you assign a static ip if not assigned and see if it helps.

    That was my first thought. Tried it. Nothing.
