Summary

Wake on LAN (WOL) is a 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 BEAM routers.

Wake on LAN configuration

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:
