I have similar problem with firmware 01.00.25 that is not even published on the Web. Xerox tells that is is my network problems and does not want to send anyone or replace the printer.

Has anyone gotten any kind of an answer from Xerox on this problem? We had a printer that worked perfectly for 10 months. Started doing this occasionally and within weeks we were having to restart the printer five or six times a day. Xerox sent a tech who replaced the network card, that did not help at all so they replaced the printer and the new printer is doing exactly the same thing. I have spent hours with tech services and customer relations and am completely fed up. They act like they have never heard of the problem.... firmware is completely up to date. Help?!?

I found one answer on a different thread (can't find it now) that reportedly solved the problem by manually assigning the printer a static IP address using the printer's control panel. The problem with this solution is that you must ensure that this IP does not match an existing or future dynamically assigned IP in your local network.
A more robust solution for me, on my home network, was to assign an IP using the DHCP Reservations list in my home base station. Here you are telling the automatic IP assignment program running in the router to always assign this IP to the printer (using the printers MAC address to identify it). This was quite easy in my case since it was an Apple base station and I could use AirPort Utility.
The key point though is that many of the "printer won't wakeup" problems I've noticed in mulitple threads (and I've experienced for years) are likely due to the printer waking up and getting assigned a different IP address. And that assigning it a fixed IP is the solution.

I found the other thread where the static IP solution was first presented:
