Enable Wake-On-LAN

NOTE: This is an old script. I have a newer and more efficient one located here.

This script will enable WOL and test to make sure it has been set. It will return whether it was a success or failure both to a log file and the screen. This script was written to also be incorporated with my new build logging process that I am getting ready to release soon. If you do not want this, just delete the buildlog and sequence variables out, along with their use in the ProcessLogFile function.

  2. Thanks for this informative article. I had some troubles with Win 10. For example, after I upgraded it from win 8, my Wake-on-LAN does not work. I tried many things and finally I solved the problem.
    Here you can find how to configure Wake-on-LAN on Windows 10.
