Do DrayTek Vigor Routers Provide Wake On LAN support?
Posted by Roy Panetta on 14 December 2011 04:48 PM

Yes. Most Vigor router models support WOL.


Wake on LAN (WOL) allows a PC in Suspend (power saving) mode to be woken up remotely by a command sent over the LAN. This is most commonly used by large businesses, so can perform software updates remotely outside office hours.


Note that for WOL to work it requires:

  • The NIC and motherboard in your PC to support WOL (WOL compliant)
  • The PC needs to be in Suspend mode - not powered OFF!
