Wake on LAN/WAN application for Symbian Belle

Development ended! If anybody wants to carry on, let me know - contact is at the end of this page.

WakeOnLAN for Symbian Belle mobile phones is a simple tool which allows you to wake ethernet devices, such as computers, media centers, network storages, etc. from sleep, hibernation or stand by mode (soft turn off) over the LAN (Local area network) or WAN (Wide area network = internet).

Download WakeOnLAN from the AppList Store (recommended*)Download WakeOnLAN from the AppList Store

* AppList is the recommended source of applications, because it has its own store application similar to the original Nokia Store application. It checks for updates automatically (also shows notifications in the widget) and allows you to browse and install new applications.
