I recently had Comcast triple-play service installed. An Arris TG862G gateway was installed. I now want to be able to send a Wake-On-Lan message from the Internet to a machine on the LAN that is hard wired to one of the Arris router's ports.
My router's IP address is 192.168.1.1. Using the web-based GUI for the router, I have assigned a static IP to the computer I want to wake (192.168.1.50). Unfortunately, it seems I cannot set a port-forwarding rule to forward Wake On Lan packets to the broadcast address of 192.168.1.255, so instead I have it set to send to 192.168.1.254, as I was hoping to use the following trick, which worked well when I had Verizon FIOS and an Actiontec: »Verizon Online FiOS FAQ

Unfortunately, it seems that I cannot connect to the Arris via telnet. Does anyone have any other suggestions as to how I can get this working with the Arris?
Thanks in advance.
