Hi Jeff, hi John,
I have set up a "static DHCP client" with the right MAC address (been there, done that, checked it twice this time).
I also have set up a port forwarding from a high port to my "static" IP address.
So far, so good. I have to try the WOL-part of it tonight, though, because I am sitting in front of my office PC (who should be woken) right now.
What I don't get is: Even if I have a static IP address, so far it does not work because the PC is off and so the router "forgets" about it, right? So the static IP address will only see to the PC getting the same IP address everytime it's on -- but there is no static route when it's off, because there is no route at all. Or is there??
I have tried the Depicus-program. That's the one that worked before with my Netgear router, so the program is great.
My Netgear router was a FWG114P, I had v1 and v2, always upgraded the Firmware first, both worked fine regarding the WOL (because you can port forward to broadcast). On the other hand, the DynDNS-service did not work properly, it lost interest in updating the IP address after about five days...
Now DynDNS works fine, but WOL doesn't (so far).
I'll keep you posted.
Thanks so far.
