AFAIK WOL does not work with WIFI adapters.

Option 1. Use computer that connects with an Ethernet wire.

Option 2. Configure a WIFI device (Wires Router, or AP) to work as a bridge, leave it ON and connect the Bridge via wire to a computer.

I.e., the Bridge get the signal for a Wireless Router and Wake the computer through the Ethernetcable.

- Make sure WOL is enable supported & enable on your motherboard, ensure WOL from S3, S4, & S5 state is enable.

- Make sure your router is not blocking WOL or enable WOL UDP.

- Know your public IP address and send the WOL signal to the public IP to test
