When we are away from home and need to use a PC that is powered off, what can we do? Wake on LAN is a useful feature for this case. We can use the Wake on LAN feature from Vigor Router's Web UI or by a Wake-on-LAN tool to wake up the computer remotely. This article will demonstrate two methods about how to wake up the computer by WoL.
Settings on the PC:
1. Enter the BIOS of your PC to enable Wake Up On LAN.
2.Click right button of your mouse on PC icon on desktop.
Settings on Vigor Router:
1.Go to LAN >> Bind IP to MAC. Enable Bind IP to MAC. Select your PC's IP address in the ARP Table, add it into IP Bind List then click OK.
2.Go to Applications >> Wake on LAN.
The PC now starts while you click Wake Up!
1.Open the web console on Vigor Router. Command "wol up 192.168.1.11".
We also can wake up the PC remotely by sending the WoL packet by the WakeOnLan tool to Vigor Router.
1. Download the WakeOnLan GUI tool.
2. Go NAT >> Port Redirection.
3. Go to Applications >> Wake on LAN/WAN >> Wake on WAN.
4. Open up WakeOnLan GUI on the PC.
The PC now starts while you click Wake Up.
