WoL

Fri Jan 05, 2018 10:03 am

So, I need a WoL, but I can't connect Raspberry Pi or my laptop to my router. Is there any way how to do WoL with laptop, lan cable and Raspberry Pi? (laptop <=LAN Cable=> Raspberry)

The Raspberry Pi does not have Wake on Lan capability.


Though it is feasible with RPi 2Bv1.2 & 3B to undertake a Network Boot from a "Server"

Depends on which machine you want to wake. As fruitoftheloom says you can't use WOL to wake a Pi but a Pi can send WOL packets to wake other PCs.

Google for etherwake

So, sorry for not specifying the machine I want to wake. I want to wake my laptop

Does your Laptop support wake on lan in the BIOS, if so just plug an ethernet cable between your Laptop and Raspberry Pi and in Raspbian OS:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wakeonlan
