    I recently installed tomato (1.28 on WRT54GL) and found myself to use the WOL function from the menu very often.

    It's really great cause it saves me time running around in the house and turning on all PCs. Now there's only one PC I need to turn on to access the tomato interface to turn on all others.

    Is there a way to schedule this process? Tell the router to turn on all PCs from tuesday to friday at 8 o'clock ?

    Sure, why not.

    U can either use the Scheduler feature in administration, or the Cron process.

    For the former, just set the days and time, then in the command box, type:
    ether-wake -i $(nvram get lan_ifname) 00:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX

    where 00:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX is the MAC address of your PC's network adapter.
