Re: HP Procurve 1800-24G WOL

The 1800-24G is a fairly basic Layer-2 only switch, a WOL packet (broadcast) will go out to all stations connected - no special configuration is required.

If you are trying to wake a machine from a different VLAN, you would need to enable ip-directed broadcast on the interconnecting router - not on the 1800.
