Hi,

I have a need to be able to Wake machines using wireless lan. Is this possible with any Cisco products or even non Cisco products?

Thanks

Ed

Re: Wireless Wake on LAN

Ok, I am going out on a limb here....

Assuming that the client PC has wake on Lan [WOL] enabled in the bios and the wireless nic supports it, are you allowing broadcast traffic (udp) to get to the subnet where the machines in question live? WOL is typically udp and any routers in the path would have to be configured to allow it or have the option in their dhcp scope (if the router is serving up dhcp).
