What happened to usr/sbin/wol ?

    I used to be able to ssh into the router and execute usr/sbin/wol with the correct arguments to wake my computer. Now busybox returns "not found" for the wol command.

    It may have been in dd-wrt version 22 that I was able to do that, but I "thought" I was able to do it in ver 23 too. Is it still present somewhere else in the directory structure?

    Oops, found it. I forgot to use the forward slash before usr. Should be /usr/sbin/wol.

    However......, now that I've found it, I can't get it to wake my machine like it did before. Would someone be willing to try it to see if it will wake their machine? (Don't forget to enable it in your bios, and in in the network adapter driver advanced settings and network adapter driver power management settings.

    Okay, got it to work:

    ssh into router
    log in
    /usr/sbin/wol ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff -i
    (replace ff:ff:ff etc. with MAC address of machine.)
