If you are using the broadcast address to send the message (i.e. 255.255.255.255) you may need to enable it in the router settings.
2)Record your ethernet adapter
3)Send the packets on the app using the send test button
4)Then try and see them appear on the live recording, or pause the recording and then sort it by protocol and look for the protocol "WOL" it should be in blue.
If you don't find anything then most likely your router isn't forwarding the packets. If you do then it will probably be something to do with the WOL setup on your PC.
Also WOL only works on ethernet, and only wakes your PC up providing the last windows shutdown was clean (i.e. you don't turn it off using the power switch or it didn't crash during shutdown). Even if the PC is "off", then you turn the PSU off and on again it still wont work. I think this is because it resets your ethernet adapter and it looses it's entry in the routers ARP table (but It could be another reason).
Hope this helps!
