Introduction

Wake-on-LAN (WOL) feature allows us to turned computer on remotely. The requirement is the computer is connected using LAN cable and its hardware supports WOL. There should be one node that stays on and capable to send WOL packet to the computer intended to be woken up. Usually it is a router.

In our lab, ipTIME router is available and can be used for this purpose. It has built-in feature. The problem when we were about to implement the WOL, its firmware need to be upgraded.

Upgrading Firmware

To enable ipTIME router wake other node on network, dynamic DNS on router has to be enabled. One problem appears during implementation.
