A project of mine, a wake-on-lan client for WP7
It was the first real wake-on-lan application made for wp7.
Real, meaning it doesn’t use any intermediate proxy server or whatever. This app operates directly from your device, using the sockets in WP7.1 .
updated with live tiles
Using them you can wake your computer with one click of a button 😎
per-device different icons 🙂
page animations, own device icons, some other visual improvements 🙂
To make use of WOL your computer must, of course, support wake-on-lan 😛
But if your pc is not older then 15 years, it probably will. 😆
To enable wake-on-lan, start device manager, open up your network card properties, switch to the power management tab, and enable “allow this computer to wake the computer”, and “only allow a magic packet to wake the computer” (else almost everything wakes the computer 😛 )
(to start device manager: click start, right mouse button on computer -> manage)
To find your mac address you need to open a command prompt. You can find this by navigation on your computer to start -> all programs -> Accessories -> command prompt.
This opens a nice, pretty old, black screen. Here you type “ipconfig /all” (without the “).
The information you need is standing next to “physical address” 🙂
This sequence must be filled in into WOL.
