WOL list vs Device List

    I'm curious as to why the Device List and the WOL List aren't identical (i.e., for me, the Device List usually has more entries). When I want to wake-up a machine that's not on the WOL list, it's a bit of a pain to copy-over the MAC address from the Device List. And for that matter, would it be possible to do-away with the WOL List altogether? Just have a "wake up" link under the MAC address in the Device List screen...? Thanks!

    My WOL List is longer than my Device List, because I assinged static IP addresses to all of my devices.

    Since all devices have a static IP, all devices are listed in the WOL List. To wake up a device, I just click its entry.

    The device list shows only those devices with an active IP lease. In other words, it shows those devices which are currently powered on or have been on in the last 24 hours. You can see the remaining lease time in the device list. When that time reaches zero, the device list will "forget" that device.
