    Same problem. Wake on WAN no longer works. Newest i7 Mini with 8 GB RAM and ML. Worked about a week ago. Mini is set to "Never Sleep" as well

    I've tried everything over the course of several months and this my official  FIX.

     

    Fix:

     

    1.   Open "System Preferences".   ( computer only), (Windows computer unknown)

    2.   Open "Network".

    3.   Click on the "Sprocket with down arrow".

    4.   Select "Make Service Order"

    5.   Move the connection your using (Wifi, Ethernet, etc.) to the top, and click Apply.

    6.   If you selected Ethernet, then turn OFF Wifi in the top menu.

    7.   Shut DOWN your computer and then restart after completely shutting down.

     

    Done, and your welcome!

    Akado,

     

    What's in your Service Order and what order (from the top)?

     

    Is Wake for Network Access checked in Energy Saver? 

     

     

    You could try and reset SMC and PRAM, however should not make any difference.

  • Akadao Level 1 (0 points)

    Wake for Network Access is checked in Energy Saver;

    and I tried and SMC and PRAM reset before.

  • Ricky679 Level 1 (0 points)

    I have the same problem, I reseted SMC, and PRAM, and nothing, Later i will check the my Service Order and I'll do the Mini-Mac test.

    It's hard to determine your problem without addition information.....here's a screen shotScreen Shot 2013-05-29 at 7.17.37 AM.png

  • Ricky679 Level 1 (0 points)

    I did this, but it doesn't work.

     

    I have two routers, a comtrend and tp-link (AP), i have open the ports 7 and 9 in both and wake for ethernet access is click.

     

    Wake on Lan works, the problem is Wake on Wan, This worked until two weeks ago.

     

    Thanks!!

  • Mini-Mac Level 3 (810 points)

    Sorry Rickey679. 

     

    But my fix is for WOL (wake for local area network access) not WAN (wake on wide area network access).

     

    BTW, FYI, Time Capsule, Airport Express and Airport Extreme and be setup over WAN

     

    If I need to access my computer remotely (very rare) I use Back-To-My-Mac.  But I do use a Synology DS and Cloud Station to sync files and folders across several Mac's.

  • Ricky679 Level 1 (0 points)

    Ok, ok, I use an application in my iphone (SleepOver), it was able send a magic packet over LAN or WAN.

     

    I'll check Back to My Mac feature.

     

    Thanks!

  • Ricky679 Level 1 (0 points)

    Anyway, in my case, i think that the problem is "Wake for network access" feature, now it only works on wifi, and previously it worked for Ethernet too, but i don't know why...maybe it's because of the last SW update (i have a mid 2007 Imac).

     

    Thanks!

    The only way I found to make sure that Wake On Wan works over Internet is to let Bittorrent run, which seems to maintain active the network connection without preventing the sleep mode for screen, CPU and disks. Thus, the network  active, WOL is operational!

  • Ricky679 Level 1 (0 points)

    But it is not the solution, the correct solution would be your mac is sleep and you send a magic packet (LAN or WAN) and wake up when you want. In my case i always wake up my mac to download any torrent or use the plex remotely.

     

    Bye

    Indeed, I agree that there is a bug. I use QuikIO, a file server with an iOS client and TeamViewer for Remote Control. None of these applications respond to WOL via the Internet from my client on iPad.

    Indeed, I agree that there is a bug. I use QuikIO, a file server with an iOS client and TeamViewer for Remote Control. None of these applications respond to WOL via the Internet from my client on iPad. Consequently, they are useless if the Mac does not come out of standby mode ...
