    i found that i can wake up the computer using internal network (192.168.1.x)
    but for WAN network
    i cannot do so all the time
    eg. after i reboot the router, or the computer off for a long period of time, the computer can't be waken.
    I've already point VDP port 9 to the computer
    What do i need to do?

    Met the same problem as well, after a while I think the router forgets the route to the powered down machine. Tried adding a fixed route but no success. I have a WRT54GS so with Satori might be able to do something with the routing tables from the command line.
