Wake on LAN/WAN, Rogers ISP and another router

Hello,
With my two previous ISPs I configured my old D-Link router to wake my Mac Pro 3,1 when I was away from home. I am now with Rogers. I have switched the Hitron CGN3 to bridge mode, and have a D-Link DIR-880L ac router. I am able to wake on Lan, and my dyn account works because I use it to connect to a security cam I have on my network.

I can't for the life of me wake the Mac while on another network.

Has anyone been able to do this?

Thanks

Have you double-checked all your settings and maybe some sites like this might help:

To be honest, I'm not sure that I completely understand what you're actually attempting to do… or if it's actually even possible…

I did it! The solution was to change the subnet mask from 255.255.255.0 to 255.255.255.128. I found the solution on the D-link forums.

Can you please explain how you achieve that? i did change the subnet mask to 255.255.255.128 but still i cannot broadcast the magic packet on the virtual server settings. it shows a "Please enter a valid IP address. " when i try to enter 192.168.0.127

With my small understanding, I believe the 192.168… addresses have and use a unique address for LAN use only. Maybe best to do some more googling and maybe start here:

Where are you trying to enter 192.168.0.127?
If you have subnetted a 192.168.0.x network block with a 255.255.255.128 subnet mask you have split that 254 useable address block into two 126 host networks (252 usable hosts total)

192.168.0.127 would be the broadcast address of the lower 192.168.0.1 network ( 192.168.0.1-126 address range).... You loose 192.168.0.127 as a usable address in your network as its now reserved for broadcasting.

The other network 192.168.0.128 (192.168.0.129-254 address range) would have the broadcast of 192.168.0.255

the message was for the guy that was able to use DIR 880L with wake on lan outside the local network, i've searched all over the net but i think this dlink router is unable to be used with wake on lan, i used to havean old dlink router that was able to do this, but new one does not allow me to enter the broadcast ip (255.255.255.0) that's why i contacted this guy, i've read he posted he was able to achieve this. i did an upgrade on my router

Port Forwarding:
W-on-L
Local IP = 192.168.0.64
TCP Port = 9
UDP Port = 9
Schedule = Alaways Enable

Try looking here: DIR 655 and Wake On Lan (WOL) Configuration over internet (SOLVED)
