As a follow up to this question.

I've confirmed and double-checked

  • that the MagicPacket is not filtered
  • that the ethernet-card in the machine is powered after shutdown
  • that the MagicPacket is received by the ethernet-card - it's flashing, when the MagicPacket arrives

but still the machine is not waking up.

Q1 What kind of diagnostics can I apply to find out why the machine is not waking up?

Q2 If the machine is up and running, is there a way to verify that MagicPackets are handled correctly?

    Why is this question talking about a router? wol packets are not routable – Rui F Ribeiro May 12 at 19:14
  • @RuiFRibeiro All devices are in the same subnet and I've checked with wireshark that the MagicPackets don't get filtered. – participant May 12 at 20:01
