    I was reading up on Wake on Lan and I found this at dslreports site..

    "My router "forgets" the link between the IP and MAC because the router flushes the ARP table or the dynamic ARP entry is wiped from the router's ARP table a few minutes after I turn off the computer.

    To resolve just forward the port on the router (Port 32767 if for DSLR) to IP, provided it operates in this IP range.

    Mulicast IPs should be hard coded in the ARP table of the routers. The WOL packet would then be passed to all nodes behind the router but the speficied MAC address would be the one to wake up

    Now forwarding a port to every computer on local network seems like a heck of a security risk which is prob why the linksys WRT54G will not let me do this. I am sure there is a way to edit the port forward file to do this broadcast. but the big questions are HOW CAN I DO THIS AND IS IT A SECURITY RISK?
