I have an Android phone running the Tasker app. I have a home computer running Windows 7 as well. Is there any way I can have Tasker detect that I've arrived at home, and send a "Wake On LAN" packet to the computer somehow? What configuration do I need to do on Tasker and on the PC itself to support this scenario?

You could check out this wake on LAN plugin for Tasker / Locale. (Haven't tried it - would be interested to hear how you get on if you give it a go)

Downloading it now; will try it when I get home today. –  GWLlosa Oct 28 '10 at 13:49

@GWLlosa did you try it out? –  FoleyIsGood Nov 3 '10 at 18:29
    
Yes, but it was kind of hit-or-miss. Mostly cause it turned out my locale itself on that phone was hit or miss; Samsung Galaxy S had GPS issues. –  GWLlosa May 4 '11 at 15:23

This works for me. http://tasker-profiles.blogspot.com/search/label/Wake%20On%20LAN

An answer which is nothing more than a link to another destination is no answer at all. What about linkrot? Better to put enough of the information here to answer the asker's question and provide a link to give credit and where more details can be found. –  Al E. Jan 4 '12 at 17:12
