 +====== Wake on LAN ======
 +
 +Wake on LAN (WoL) is a tool which allows to remotely switch on a computer via an Ethernet network.
 +
 +To be really possible to switch on the computer it has to be connected by a cable, its network adapter has to support this feature and it has to be enabled in BIOS.
 +
 +You can find WoL in the section ''​Services''​ → ''​Wake on LAN''​ (''​Network''​ → ''​Wake on LAN''​ in older versions). In ''​WoL program''​ you choose one of the available programs. As noted in the manual, it's necessary to test first which program works for your device.
 +
 +If you choose ''​Etherwake''​ you should specify the ''​Network interface to use''​. In the standard Turris router configuration it is ''​eth0''​ or ''​eth1''​ accordingly to where the device is connected. Please consult the [[vlan_settings|VLAN configuration]] page in our documentation. We need to mention that the general option ''​Broadcast on all interfaces''​ doesn'​t work in our case and it's necessary to choose a specific network interface.
 +
 +The last required item is the ''​Host to wake up''​. If you want to wake up a device which is routinely used you can probably find it in the list. In other cases it is possible to choose ''​-- custom --''​ and to fill in a MAC address in the format ''​11:​22:​33:​44:​55:​66''​.
 +
 +Then you can click at ''​Wake up host''​ and to wake up the desired machine.
