I have been working to get wake on LAN working now on several different computers with no luck.
I have enabled wake on LAN in the BIOS as well as enabled magic packet in the advanced network properties. I then shut the computer down and attempt to boot it up from a different workstation using (preferably) Wake on LAN from Aquila Technology, Inc. It can see the host when it is online but once turned off the power on feature fails.
I have also used WakeMeOnLAN from nirsoft, and WakeOnLANx software and none of them work. I have tried it on two separate computers at two different locations.
One tool said that it was best to use the subnet 255.255.255.255 whereas the other provided a tool where you input the IP (In that case 192.168.0.10) and it provides you with the subnet to use, which it suggested 192.168.0.255. I have tried on both ports 7 and 9 as well. The two locations are setup pretty much the same, no static IPs on the computers, multiple workstations on the same network, no domain. The computers attempting to be woke up are both Windows 7, one is Dell one is Acer.
Thanks for any help.
