I've found a few other topics addressing wireless LAN printers that appear offline after setting DNS servers to the OpenDNS addresses at the router. I have a Linksys e4200 router so as far as I can tell I don't have an option to set the DNS addresses WAN-side, only LAN-side. So the advice I've found in other threads is to make a VPN exception for the printer name (e.g. the name that would appear in the Dashboard's Stats>Domain log). The problem is my printer is not showing up in the domain log, even though it has successfully connected to my network via DHCP, assumed the two OpenDNS addresses for its DNS server values, and I can access the printer's config page at its IP address from another wireless computer's web browser. Any tips on figuring out what the printer's domain name is? It's a Brother printer if anyone can advise how a Brother domain name would appear.
