First of all, restart your computer and go to computer's Setup utility:

Wake-On-LAN Computer Configuration - BIOS

Choose the Wake on LAN from S5 option as Power on.

Restart your computer again then run Device Manager and select Ethernet adapter. Depending on your Microsoft Windows version and your adapter you can find "wake on", or "magic packet" options like these:

Router Configuration

If your computer is connected to Internet using a router with NAT you need to set it to forward all broadcast traffic from some port on your PC. This will only works if you have a dedicated, always-on internet connection, and a configurable router (for instance, a Cisco, Linksys, or D-Link). The below example shows how to configure your Cisco router:

interface FastEthernet0/0
description connected to EthernetLAN
ip address
ip access-group 100 in
ip directed-broadcast 100
ip nat inside

interface FastEthernet0/1
description connected to Internet
ip address
ip access-group 101 in
ip directed-broadcast 101
ip nat outside

ip nat inside source static udp 7 7777 extendable

access-list 100 permit ip any any

access-list 101 permit udp any host eq 7777
access-list 101 deny ip any host

In this case a magic packet has to be sent to the router's IP address, port 7777.

The below example shows how to configure your D-Link router:

Wake-On-LAN D-Link Configuration

The above examples show how to forward Wake-On-LAN magic packets to the broadcast address of your LAN.

If your router does not allow to enter the broadcast address you can use Static DHCP or IP Address Reservation.
First, you need to bind IP and MAC addresses of your computer:

D-Link Router Static DHCP
outer IP Reservation

Then configure your router to forward magic packets directly to the IP address of your computer.
