"modem laptop wake".. stuff like that.. been discussed a lo.. here's one to start you out: Remotely startup laptop...? (wake on lan)??
I believe you need a line emulator, ring generator or other circuit to produce the approx. 90vac 20-60hz ring signal.Originally Posted by Rafster
jeese like half this thread's words were "NOOB".... hm... it IS the newb forum though...
Searching isn't always best, otherwise forums would have no point b/c people would have to look instead of specialized help... and people (cough the guys that half their posts are just negative "NOOB" accusations (^^^) would have.. well... less posts to brag about!!!
lmao thats my two-cents..
But seriously I'm going to try and use a laptop and it took me 20 minutes to find info thats half-way worthwhile.
lmao... i dunno I just felt compelled to say this
ps: POST WHORE?!?!?! 2 months and 919 posts!!! OMG! POST WHORE! lmao jk jk jk jk
oops again too ****ed,, wong buttons!!,,,,,,,,,sue me!!
I searched and found this wonderfully usefull thread with "veterans" offerring no usefull advice what so ever.
The best defense is a good offense aye
Unfortunatly my lappy has a seperate board (that the buttons are soldered directly onto) that pushes onto pins on the mainboard. No luck for me, haha. Lifebook B btw.
I DO appreciate the usefull info though.
I think the best way, and possibly the way I'm gonna do it is with a linksys WRT54g or WRT54gs router with an upgraded firmware (hacked) that upon start up sends a lan wake up signal to the specified computer... do a search for "WOL" and "WRT54g"... a little bit more expensive, and bulkier but it gives you more options... like a portable wireless hotspot...
Incidently I actually own that router... But My wireless g usb adapter (wusb54g) shuts off when the pc hibernates.
~being a usb adapter it won't work for this - does anyone know of any software to keep a usb port/touchscreen "Awake" during hibernation so you can wake it up as you would with a ps2 mouse (fyi my lappy has win2000pro)
