Wake-on-Lan does not seem to wake the highlighted computer at all

Wake-on-Lan does not seem to wake the highlighted computer at all.

When TaskForceCO2 is open, and you have configured a PC to be woken using Wake-on-Lan, the packet is sent however the computer may not wake.

This could be because

  1. The computer's BIOS does not have WOL enabled - or does not support the feature.
  2. Your Switches/Routers are not routing the broadcast packet out beyond your own subnet.

Resolution

  1. Refer to the PC vendor's documentaiton on how to edit the BIOS settings to enable Wake-On-LAN.
  2. Also see this article on blocked network ports
