Windows 7: Switched to OpenDNS, now Windows doesn't detect my wireless printer.

Switched to OpenDNS, now Windows doesn't detect my wireless printer.

I'm running Windows 7 Home 64bit. About a week ago, I had an issue with internet connectivity which some fine people here were able to sort out for me. Basically, I found that I couldn't reliably access the internet unless I changed my DNS settings to Open DNS. After I did that, I found I could no longer print any documents even though Windows was still communicating with the printer. I ended up telling Windows to remove the printer and FAX in the hopes of just setting it up again.

However, that didn't work and Windows cannot find the printer at all. I've tried connecting via WLAN and via WPS but even though the printer finds the connection point to the router, Windows can't detect the printer.

My printer is a Canon PIXMA MX922. I've tried contacting Canon but chat but even their email tech support is giving me error messages.

I am not sure how to proceed from here. Could you please help?
