Wake On LAN WRT54G??

    Hello Everyone:

    Anyone know how I can get WOL to work with a WRT54G router (across a WAN)? I've got my WOL program to braodcast it's packet thing accross port 6000 to my router.

    From there, I need to basically enable port forwarding, and forward this packet to 192.168.1.255 - but it seems that the range is [0 - 254], and so I can't setup the forward.

    I called linksys, they said use 254 because it was "the end of the range". Tried to tell them that 255 is the broadcast address and is used for WOL - but they wouldn't buy it.

    So - anyone know how I can do this? I've got a WRT54G v2 with the latest Linksys Firmware...

    Thanks in advance!

    I think you may need 3rd party firmware for this. I know Thibor has a firmware version(which is normally for the GS) which supports it. Tofu's version(which is for the G) may also, but I don't know. You can check here: www.hyperwrt.org and see.
