Is there anybody out there?
I have a problem with my new WRT610Nv2 with DD-WRT v24-sp2 running. I followed the wiki to set up the router for waking up my computer via port forwarding.
But it works just form the local network using the broadcast address not form outside. These are the step I have done:
1.) I gave my computer a fixed IP (192.168.1.100) with a long leasing time
2.) I set up a port forwarding of the port no 9 to this Ip (still 192.168.1.100)
3.) I used the administration gui to set up a static APR entry:
ip neigh change 192.168.1.100 lladdr ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff nud permanent dev br0
ip neigh add 192.168.1.100 lladdr ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff nud permanent dev br0
I tried a) with the broadcast MAC and b) with the real MAC of my computer I want to wake up.
4.) I rebooted the router a) with the command reboot and after that, because WOW does not work b) a cold restart.
5.) I used the linux command wakeonlan form another machine, to wake the computer up.
Result: I aint got it workin! It works just for a couple of minutes after the machine is smutted down.
Please help me folks! I really need it, and it is so boring to use every time the router gui, to wake my computer up. And unfortunately the router seems not to support SSH and telnet is too insecure.
Well folks, it seems that no one got an idea what to do o nobody is interested in this problem. I’ll tell you now what I did if you will have the same trouble once. I am using now this three lines of script:
Script logs into router using ssh (I got it working) and says router to wake the computer. Advantages are: You don’t have to open an extra port, Using SSH-Authentication you don’t have to type in a password, and you have only to call one command.
