Troubleshoot Wake-on-LAN

If you are having difficulties getting Wake-on-LAN to work, verify the following.
  • Make sure your device you are trying to wake supports Wake-on-LAN
  • Check if you need to enabled Wake-on-LAN on your device (typically, this is done through the device driver properties of this device)
  • Make sure the device you want to wake and the device sending the magic packet is on the same subnet
  • Make sure you are sending a properly formatted magic packet
