Wake on lan only works close to home
I have Teamviewer on my desktop at home. I have the Teamviewer app on my Android phone. I have WOL setup.
Here's the deal; my phone can wake up my desktop:
- at home, connected to wifi
- at home, not connected to wifi, mobile data only
But when I got to work this morning, took out my phone, and tried to wake up my desktop... nothing. When I got home, as stated above, it worked fine; was able to wake the desktop either connected to wifi or on mobile data only. HOWEVER...
I then disconnected my phone from the wifi, got in my car, and drove about a half a mile away... and was able to wake the desktop.
But at work (about 20 miles from home) this morning, I couldn't.
Anyone have any ideas, here? When it didn't work at work this morning I thought I needed to adjust my settings or something when I got home, but now I don't know what to think.
I thought about just driving further and further away to see if it stopped working at a certain distance from home, but I thought I'd ask for ideas here, first.
Tl;dr WOL via smartphone works at home and a half mile from home, but not at work.
P.S. I followed this video to set up WOL initially.
