HOWTO: Forward remote WOL packets through a "home" router
It seems like most routers will not allow the broadcast address (192.168.1.255) of a 192.168.0.xxx type of network (with subnet mask 255.255.255.0) to be specified for a port forward (the magic packet port). However, all you have to do is change your subnet to 255.255.255.128 and the broadcast address becomes 192.168.0.127 and the router has no problem with that!
It took me forever to find how to do this, so I thought more people may find this interesting.
