SummaryEdit

Wake on LAN (WOL) is feature that can "wake up" compliant computers from sleep mode by sending a "magic packet" to the network interface adapter. This chapter is an overview of the Wake on LAN page in RUTX09 devices.

If you're having trouble finding this page or some of the parameters described here on your device's WebUI, you should turn on "Advanced WebUI" mode. You can do that by clicking the "Basic" button under "Mode", which is located at the top-right corner of the WebUI.

 

Wake on LAN configurationEdit

You can set up the WOL function to use a broadcast address when waking up devices or wake all connected devices on click from the Wake on LAN configuration section:

 

Field name Value Description
Broadcast off | on; default: off If checked, the WOL function sends a magic packet to the broadcast address (FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF) whenever it is asked to wake a device. When you send a packet to the broadcast address it is received by all LAN devices.
Wake all devices - (interactive button) Wakes all devices by sending a magic packet to the broadcast address (FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF).
