Devices can still be awoken by Infuse, just with a delay of a few seconds. WoL provided nearly instant wake ups.

Thats not true devices are not waking up anymore or better it never worked realy well
Why not give us the possibility to enter the mac address in the setting menu?

This is something we may consider for a future update.

My server always took 10 seconds or so to wake so maybe wol never worked for me.

I assume this doesn’t affect the synology nas if justbthe drives are hibernating or whatever that state is called?

I'm having no issues what so ever in waking a WD MyCloud and iMac from Infuse. It does talk a little time for all 5 of the disks to spin up but no longer than when sitting in front of the computer.

As of iOS 11, Apple doesn't allow apps to view the MAC address of networked devices as we have been able to in the past. Unfortunately this means WoL is no longer available in Infuse.

An option to manually enter the Mac address of the nas would really be appreciated. Problem solved & everyone is happy. Please do consider such feature in one of the next releases.

Same here with a DS218+. Had to buy another app from the app store to get wake on land functionality working. Sad that infuse doesn't support such basic functionality yet. Maybe we see it in a future major release.

Just wanted to check on this, has there been any updates?

I read through the article James had posted, so it seems the ip addresses are still available to be seen. I keep my servers ip address fixed. Shouldn't WoL work in this case, if the functionality exist in the app?

Moving this to suggestions for now.

As of iOS 11, apps are no longer able to detect the MAC addresses of other devices it sees on the network. The MAC address is the part that is required in order to enable WoL and send the "magic" packet. Generally, WoL is not required to actually wake a device but it can help speed up the process.

The only option we have is to add a manual field that is available when setting up the share, where the MAC address can be entered, and this is what we are considering adding in a future update.

I think people who are technical enough to know WoL exists wouldn't mind tracking down the MAC address themselves. I actually created this account just to say I'd love to see this feature added. In a perfect world, under add shortcut -> "via Network Share" ->"Add Share" add an additional field for a MAC. I wouldn't mind entering it, if infuse could remember it per shortcut I create.

Hi... Do we have any progress on this? I think it´s clear Infuse will not be able to detect the MAC of the NAS device, but having the option to add the MAC address manually so send the WoL package to the NAS device will really be helpful

James, the device can be put on hold and on sleep. On hold works fine (with the 2-3 seconds delay of course) but sleep mode saves much more energy, specially during the nights and days out of home....

Thanks for the support on this

Frankly speaking, I don’t understand why they don’t add this simple feature.

This is great news!

It would be cool if infuse could automatically wake up the nas if a movie is selected that is stored on its hdd.

Take note that this thread is marked "Pending" that means that it's in the works and is targeted for an upcoming release. At this moment it's in the works for version 6.0.6 but depending on the big picture it may or may not slip a release or so. You can track the progress here https://firecore.com/forum/topic/13575
