Can I WOL a tomato router?
How do you shut one off without disconnecting the power?
I guess there is a shutdown command, but I'm not sure why you'd ever want to use it. I highly doubt it actually saves a significant amount of power.
I don't know how you would WOL a tomato (or any other consumer) router...
The power consumption is really low. You're better off just leaving it on.
10W for the RT-N66U while running.
5W for the RT-N16 while idling.
3W for the Buffalo WZR-HP-G300NH while idling.

I wasn't thinking about power really, although I would argue on this point if you have an ASUS RT-N16!).
I can even explain what I'm trying to achieve here, but ultimately, and most importantly I'm really interested in finding out if this could be a possibility or not.
