Cisco677 and Wake One Lan (WOL)


I have a Cisco677 router connected between the internet and my computer. I have "my own" IP and has configured my computer to WOL. But how do I do it through the Cisco677 ????

I wan't to be able to start my computer from work, but I can't get the computer to "wake". I gues that I need to open some port and mayby configure a MAC adress, but I'm not a genius to this, and need som userfrendly help.

Can anyone helpe me?

Re: Cisco677 and Wake One Lan (WOL)

I think Wake on LAN is just that and can’t work over a WAN connection. You’ll probably have to look into an alternative like a dial-up power switch or timed wake device. If you had a router that performed IPSEC (like an 800 series) you could VPN you’re your home network and then wake on LAN MIGHT work (I wouldn’t see why not) but that would require a router upgrade.
