wondering how to use the WOL

by TheChas In reply to wondering how to use the ...

You use Wake On Lan for any networked PC that you wish to come to life when a network request is sent to the PC.

1 use would be as a firewall / internet gateway for a home network.
You would want the PC with the connection to 'wake up' whenever another PC wished to use the connection.

Another use would be for a printer server.
