I use WOL (sometimes) with freeBSD and ports/net/wol/
Basically, when I am not at home to wake up my desktop via wol from
my nat-box.
The nat-box is RELENG-4_7 with two fxp (Intel NIC) and the desktop
a ASUS CUSL-2 with 933mhz pIII and another fxp running RELENG_4.
Other setups may differ.

It was some time ago when I used this for the first time, but I can't
remember to have turned something on. It just worked ;]
Be sure to also check the posting from Alexander Kuehn regarding
the hardware issues.
