I've successfully booted my XP desktop numerous times from several locations using the script below. I built a PC with 64bit W7 and have only been able to boot it from my network. I really can't find the MAC address I have in this script and don't recall what address needs to be there (ff...) i.e. the desktop PC, the router or what? Thank you!
sleep 5
ip neigh change lladdr ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff nud permanent dev br0
ip neigh add lladdr ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff nud permanent dev br0

I do need to clarify something. The MAC address I'm using now is an actual one, not ff. I did read where ff is a broadcast address and can be used but that isn't the way I have it set up now.
