Wake on LAN D Link DIR-615

Hi all.

My XP Dell Desktop wakes just fine using Solar Winds WOL from my Dell XP Laptop inside my network but I would like it to work over the internet. I think it may be a router forwarding / port issue but it's a new area to me and I'm not sure where and what to set to get it running

Ok, you may want to setup a WOL script and store it inside your network.  You could then launch the script via remote.  Instead of trying to send WOL from an outside network.

Dear Sir

Apologies but unfortunately I do not have in depth technical knowledge to understand what is being said in that post, expecially the link to a 483 pages HP document. PLease could you go back to basics and explain what these switches are and how I might create them to wake my PC

Hi ts4673 ,

That looks a bit easier  to follow thanks.
Ok so I have downloaded and run the program set up a POD and added a computer.
When I run it I get the "batch operation initiated" see attached
It does not wake though

The pod preferences are

POD Nickname: DELL TV
Internal IP Address: 192.168.0.108
POD MAC Address: 00-13-72-**-**-** (I guess I should not display this here ?)
Broadcast Address: 81.109.240.255
Netmask: 255.255.255.0

Can you help as the contact me on their site does not work

Thanks Chris

I got hold of  poweronmypc.com in the end. Their product only works if you have a machine running all the tine to wake the others. Thanks for the advice, it was worth a try.
