with my two previous ISPs I have setup my modems and routers to be able to wake my Mac via Wake on Lan functionality by forwarding port 9 UDP. With current setup, same Mac, a new Rogers modem CGN3 in bridge mode, I am able to wake the Mac (connected via ethernet), using my iPhone while on my home wifi network. I use an app called iWOL pro, or one of the many websites that does WOL. When I try from outside my network, by turning wifi off on the phone or from my pc at work, my Mac fails to wake.
I suspect the problem is the modem, as I know the modem itself does not allow for this functionailty when in regular "router" mode.
Thanks for any help,

Thank you for the interesting post. In bridge mode, the modem should be just passing through the traffic. Anybody in the Community has any ideas about this issue?
Hitron CGN3ACSMR router - trying to port forward for Wake on Lan
Hi. I'm not having much success with this. I've made sure all the settings required for Wake on Lan are set correctly, assigned a static IP address to the PC I'm trying to wake, forwarded port 9 on the router to the static IP, etc.
But when I try and wake the sleeping PC from another PC on the network - nothing. No errors, but it stays fast asleep.
Can anybody offer some clues? Thank you.
Does not work in hitron router mode 😞
