Adds MAC address to remote router's ARP table and wakes computer on a LAN by sending a broadcast. Update the shell command object to contain your router password (replace the word password in the existing command), your target computer's local ip and MAC address, and your router's WAN ip address or dynamic dns host name (free from places like noip.com assuming your router supports it). Needs telnet enabled on router. Update WOL flow object to contain your router's WAN ip address or dynamic dns host name and the MAC address of the computer to wake. Also make sure wake on lan is enabled in the network adapter's properties in the device manager and in the bios (if applicable) of the target computer and make sure the correct port, usually 7 or 9, is forwarded in the router to the target computer's ip address and the correct port is set in the wake on LAN object in the flow. Flow can be used with a widget if desired. Custom icons for automate widgets are available at www.iconspedia.com assuming you are using an automate flow beginnings shortcut style widget and have a custom android launcher like GoLauncher or an app like Icon Changer from the app store that allows you to change shortcut icons.

Note: Requires BusyBox for telnet commands.
