"that supports forwarding to a broadcast address"
Good luck with that.. But what you do is use a router that supports static arp, and then then just assign and unused IP the broadcast mac FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF
Then just forward to that IP. Another work around is just to vpn to your router and then send your WOL from the router or whatever vpn box you have up that is on 24/7/365 you can access on your lan.
Good idea. I was thinking of these options as well but was also thinking I may as well upgrade the wireless router seeing as 802.11ac is coming out soon ... seems the market isn't fully of pre cert routers unlike before 802.11n was released.
Thanks everyone for all the suggestions. I'll have a look into them.
