  1. OK, i just tested a script that sent a UDP packet to the ip on the computer that is asleep. The computer didnt wake up... i am not sure what to do now, help?
  2. Yes, I know that is uses MAC addresses, and I was planning on writing my own script to send the magic packet. I guess I am a little confused with how UDP works then? Say the IP of the computer thats off is, would I just send a UDP message "FF FF FF FF FF FF [6-byte MAC address of ethernet cable 16 times]" to on port 9?
  3. I am trying to setup Wake on LAN for a computer of mine. I read that you need a wireless adapter that supports it, so instead of going out and buying one, I have decided to hook two computers up with an ethernet cable. The other computer uses a wireless adapter, and stays on most of the time because its old and quiet. Now comes the hard part. I know a decent bit about sending TCP/UDP, so I thought I will just have the other computer send the magic packet to 192.168.1.xxx, but as I run that through my head I am finding that might not work... The computer that's turned off gets its internet through the wireless adapter, so if the other computer tries to send it a packet, won't it still be trying to do it via the adapter? Is there a way to direct the packet to be sent through the ethernet cable?
