DSL 2680 WOL problems
« on: May 09, 2013, 03:48:51 AM »


 

   

I'm trying to get Wake on lan working over the internet. I've got it working on my home network so I know that the PC I'm waking is capable of being woken.

The Router I've got is a Dlink DSL-2680
So far I've set up a DDNS host, which the Dlink allows me to do and I can ping the host name and the IP address of my router appears... except when the router IP address changes the host doesn't appear to get updated, the whole point of DDNs?. I don't know if there's some sort of delay or whether I have to apply a mystery setting on the router. If I reput my host password in and "apply" it then the host does get updated.

I've opened ports 7 and 9, some post say this is done in Virtual server but that doesn't appear in my menu

I'm using a magic packet generator from depicus which works on my lan.

When I'm trying to do it over the internet

I'm leaving the mac address as for wake up from my lan which I know works
I'm changing the the IP address to my ddns host name and using a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0
I've tried setting the port to 7 and 9.

I've tried using my routers IP address instead of the ddns host name

So far all this is without success.

Anyone any clues   Cheers

Can try reviewing this to see if it helps any:

I recommend phone contacting D-Link support to find out if this model modem officially supports WOL features.

Thanks for responding.  I've already looked at that post and that's where it goes on about the virtual server. Unfortunately I can't find that option in any of the menus on my router. I've already emailed DLINk support but they don't seem to want to respond. I'm in the UK so ringing them might be a bit expensive

Cheers

WOL may not be possible on this model modem.

Let us know what you find out.

Ok but I suspect that unless I get a response from DLINK I'm at a dead end

You might ask them while you are on the phone with them which model model or router model would support WOL, If they have a router, then bridge this current modem and use the router and then set up your WOL.

Let us know how it goes.
