It should work. Be sure you're forwarding port 9 UDP packets to the broadcast address (i.e. 192.168.2.255).

One more thing to try is turning off the firewall on the router.

That's pretty much it. Seems like it should work, but apparently doesn't.

Do you feel like taking apart your network? Try a different router!

Are there upstream devices that might be dropping the packets? Other firewalls in modems/switches? Have you verified port forwarding working for other applications/ports?

On the outbound, be sure that isn't being blocked either.

On that last note, how are you testing external?

Plug in external to WAN port on router to eliminate other internet issues and isolate problem to router.

Here's one more thing to try, but it's probably going to just tell you that packets aren't reaching your LAN:

Run Magic Packet Sender on the WAN side and the Sniffer on the LAN side. That should totally isolate the router.

You could also sniff on the WAN side to make sure the external packets are reaching you.
