Windows 7: Wake On WAN doesn't work after extended period

02 Dec 2009   #1

Wake On WAN doesn't work after extended period


Wake on LAN always works.

Wake on WAN works via dslreports after very short period of time after sleep.

Wake on WAN DOES NOT work after long period (~5+ minutes after sleep)

It would appear I have the correct settings set given the scenario. I've done the obvious.. Set BIOS and Windows settings correctly to my knowledge. I'm lost as to why I can't get it to wake up on wan after while. Any help... Very much appeciated. Thanks.
