wake on LAN by Modem

Posted on 2007-09-28

I have a friend who wants to setup a remote PC which can receive wake-on-lan via modem (56K connection), then I would script that remote PC to capture an image with an attached webcam, transmit the picture to his local PC, then shut down the remote PC.

The first thing I need is a modem which can signal a wake-on-lan command to boot a PC. Anyone used such a modem or done a task similar to what I described above?

Thank you!

    You need to get a modem with WOL capabilities(not difficult to find)
    Then you just need to make sure your M/B and bios supports WOL.

    As far as I know it will be an internal modem then.
    I like using any realtek based cards(which is most of them)
    It will have a cable that plugs into the MB to enable WOL
