I recently built my own PC and have decided that as I am at work and school lots that a remote Desktop connection would be a good idea. I have installed Google Chrome remote desktop and that seems to work well but i cannot seem to set up WOL for the same system. I believe the problem is my LAN setup. As I don't have a clear way of wiring an Ethernet all the way across my house. As a temporary measure i have wired my asus laptop to my Desktop using a CAT5e cable. This is just so i can get better internet until i get wired. If you need any more information, i will happy hand it out. Thanks again, Alex

Hello TheHeyMaker and :welcome: to Bleeping Computer

 

Let's see if your adapter supports waking your computer when its in sleep mode:

 

1. Press WindowsX

2. Click on Command Prompt

3. Copy and paste this command and press enter

powercfg -devicequery wake_from_any >%UserProfile%\Desktop\Info.txt

4. This should create an info.txt file on your Desktop. Open it, and copy and paste it in your next reply

Follow the instructions here: http://www.howtogeek.com/192642/how-to-remotely-turn-on-your-pc-over-the-internet/

 

And check to see if Wake on LAN is enabled in the BIOS/UEFI
