I am trying to find a way to use wake on lan across multiple subnets, but it does not work.  I can use the program to wake up a computer on the same subnet, for example 10.122.32.xxx can wake up a computer with the address 10.122.32.yyy, but a computer with the ip address 10.122.32.xxx cannot wake up a computer on 10.122.31.yyy.  I am using PCNet software from AMD to do this, any ideas on the problem?
Thanks.

Well I am not sure if PCnet can support Wake on Lan across subnets. I couldn't find anything to support it if it does. I know Norton's Ghost 7.5 or later will Wake on Lan across subnbets.

What kind of router are you using between the subnets? I think the router has to be supporting BOOTP requests/forwarding.

We use a Cisco 6500 which has a vlan table in it, each vlan being on a different subnet.  I know the 6500 is capable of using BOOTP, just don't know if we have it on.  Unfortanately I am not in the group that controls the switches...  I'll look into norton Ghost, thanks.
