I'm not endorsing this site, but maybe of use to you as it gives a fairly cut and dry description of the requirements. I have not seen a WOL WiFi adapter and I would not expect to see one soon as the power demands of WiFi would exceed the standby power supply.

If this application is usefull you could add a little code wrapper to extend it's functionality or provide a GUI.

ps. you only need MCGETMAC.EXE for MS Windows prior to Win2K, otherwise you can just use ipconfig /all and use the "Physical Address" information.

For O/S other than Windows see this link, it provides useful links and a verbose description of the WOL implimentation history.

Also tested http://ahh.sourceforge.net/wol/ (compiled on Red Hat 7.1 SeaWolf distro) and worked well. man page states support for password but my WOL does not require one so I can not confirm.
