I need to wake my computer from a remote location, I can do a WOL but only on my local network (duh!) but I want to use the so called Magic Packet to wake my computer up.
My router doesnt have WOL as an option and It wont upgrade the firmware since Netgear routers from Comcast are blocked.
So, I want to wake my PC which is always 192.168.1.10, what exactly do I have to do in the router to send the "magic packet" ?
This whole idea is about being able to wake my PC with my phone (either with a magic packet android app or using a website that helps sending the magic packet).
Then connect to my PC with Team Viewer (Either Windows version or Android).
I can leave my computer on ? YES ! but lets try to be green here :D
I can connect to my router via web or telnet if I enable this? YES! But WOL option is not on my router menu and I dont know if a new firmware has it, and even if it does, Comcast Netgear routers are blocked becuase they think end-users will brick them or something! which It sucks if there is a security issue I can't even patch this thing ?!?! wow.
I will be doing some more test the rest of the week with my laptop and android phone, these will be connected to neighbors Wifi making the packet sending officially "remote" or "non-local".
I'm new btw, nice forums and Thank you!
