Wake on Lan not working on this router

Hi All

 

been having a few probs getting my new XR500 to work with WOL

 

(upgraded from an R7000 running dd-wrt which worked fine...)

 

I also use an mobile app "iShutdown" which can wake, sleep, hibernate, shutdown etc my pc at home while im outside of my LAN.

 

this app and any other WOL app i usually would use , no longer works with the XR500.

 

this is a big no no as i frequently need to check in on cctv , nas, home pc etc etc.

 

Have port forwarded usual ports for the app and port 9 for WOL, but it just doesnt seem to work.

 

Have i to do some special tweak on the XR500 to get this working ?

 

thanks 

Model: XR500| Nighthawk Pro Gaming Router

Hey if you've seen my last post on the Netduma forum I would highly recommend calling Netgear Support so that you can get it resolved as quickly as possible.
