I have a Linksys router WRT54GS V1 Firmware version 4.71.4. I am having issues getting the router to allow me to use wake on lan over the internet. If I send a magic packet to the local subnet it works fine but if I attempt to do it from the internet I get nothing.
I set the subnet mask of my router to 255.255.255.128. I have enabled port forwarding to UDP port 9 and ip address 192.168.1.127. It sill does not work. Any suggestions?
UPDATE: I have not had a chance to try all the suggestions yet. I will hopefully try it this evening.
UPDATE 2: I was finally able to make this work. I was never able to make the WOL work with the linksys firmware so I had to install DD-WRT. Once it was installed I added a Port Forwarding rule to 192.168.1.255 for UDP ports 7&9.
