Hello, I have a desktop PC with the mobo Asus X79-Deluxe.

I need to find a system to turn on the computer remotely. I'm not sure how WOL works when not in Lan...

The pc is connected to a Cisco ISR 851w router. Is it possible to WOL the computer remotely? Maybe doing some port forwarding on the rooter? If yes what port? Or maybe I just have to connect to the router remotely and send some command from that router?

Thanks

Wol can be set up in the bios of the motherboard.

You must also make sure that the correct set of S modes, sleep state modes are setup in the Apci section of the bios.

Because you have a commercial router this is possible but it is not easy. I suspect you want to do this from the internet which is not possible since it requires control end to end to make this work. The trick you use to make this work is called directed broadcast. This is a sample cisco has you should be able to use your router in place of the l3 switch.

Thanks for your help. I just had to do a normal port forwarding for UDP packets on the router on port 7
