I'd like to wake my pc from work occasionally so set up a noip address on the router that seems to work. The problem is that it doesnt seem to support wol unless I missed something. I try to forward port 7 to 192.168.1.255 (broadcast to entire lan) but it doesn't want to accept the 255. any ideas?

WOL through the Internet is always going to be tricky, can you VPN to your Router / modem, then you can use your WOL utility (I use this one - http://www.depicus.com/wake-on-lan/wake-on-lan-gui.aspx) in LAN or direct mode.

I don't think it supports a vpn connection well least I can't find any information on it if you can.
