    I've been trying to setup a way to remote WOL my PC behind a WRT54GS for a bit but I am not finding much resources. I'm still quite the network newb (software dev but not much networking tinkering) and this site seems to be geared to the elite.

    All I really want is Remote wake on lan and static DHCP. Any recommendations on firmware (btw I have WRT54GS v2, as I know not much is available for that) Any resources or suggestions would be much appreciated, thanks.

    Two dumb questions.
    1) What is static DHCP?
    2) Remote wake up on a router?
    Not sure what you mean.

    1)staistic dhcp is when you assgin a computer a ip address like 192.168.1.100

    2)i think that FireAndGlass want to wake a comptuer on the network that is behind the router or attached to the router

    I would just tell your router to give out dhcp addresses starting at 192.168.1.100 and set your computers to 192.168.1.2 , .3 , .4 and so on.. but if you really want sdhcp then I suppose you could get sveasoft's firmware version although I think they charge for it .. opps i mean for the support only and the means to download it.


    As far as Wake on Lan. If you go to dslreports.com they have something under tools that will forward the wake up packet to an ip address. Although I am not sure what port to forward for that. The problem with wake on lan is it seems to be geared towards local networks LAN not WAN. I think it might work off of some broadcast which the router will prevent. But I am really no expert on that. just my 2 cents.
