  • WOL does not always work on boxes that a hard powered off. Also WOL does not cross routers unless you are forwarding Broadcast packets - SMal.tmcc 8 years ago
  • The best way to debug it is to install on a computer on the same sub-net of the one you want to wake Wireshark and start to capture the network traffic.
    You need to check that when you send the WoL command you see in Wireshark the WoL packet (called magic-packet).
    The packet is an UDP packet
    The source Ip will be the K1000 and the destination IP the broadcast address of the network.
    The destination port is the port 7/udp

    If you do not see it you may need to configure the router to allow broadcast traffic to be routed.
    You do not need to route all the broadcast traffic but you can set a very specific rule: route the broadcast traffic UDP, destination port 7, source ip: the K1000
