    I just moved out of state, and as such, am now using a new internet provider. Before I moved, WOL was set up and was working perfectly. When I set up my computer at my new house, I've lost the WOL function. Any idea where I should look?

    EDIT: Forgot to mention that I have only tried to make this work within my own home network. Haven't even yet tried to WOL from outside my home.

    Sometimes your BIOS is in control of this as well. Check your BIOS if WOL is an option.

    Check your bios settings and see if the option to wake on lan is enabled, then check your ethernet adapter settings too. Also are you trying to wake a pc wirelessly (with no 2nd router or wireless extender connected to it via ethernet) or is it connected to the network via ethernet? Please give details of your setup.
