My Brother MFC-J625DW WiFi printer would not work in WiFi mode in my home network so for a long time I was using my USB cable. I had this problem for a while and I thought there was just a software glitch when it updated to Windows 10. Then while checking out and testing another Brother MFC-J425D printer (an earlier model), I was installing the Driver and it didn't work either. I don't know why but I decided to disable PeerBlock, when I did within a few seconds the Printer showed it was online and works over the WiFi.

I tried going through the list and disable each one and closed out the list manager and allowed it to reinitialize. But nothing changed the printer icon remained in the offline mode. I even checked off each list and then reinitialized the PeerBlock again and sill nothing. But as soon as I disabled PeerBlock again within a few seconds the printer Icon showed it was online via WiFi.

Does anyone know what I should do to keep the WiFi Printer online and keep PeerBlock enabled?

Need help please.

Go to your router and find the printer ip there. Then allow that ip in peerblock.

I was able to narrow it down to the Bogon list, once I removed it from my peerblock it worked fine.

Ok I got it to allow the printer bu since my new upgrade this week all was working fine.

The none of the lists I put into peerblock including the ones I subscribe to were being blocked, then I added bogon list and it started to block bogons.

Why are none of the other lists being blocked?

It has been like this since I upgraded to window 10 Pro.
