    Old saying "If it seems to good to be true, it probably isn't." It was too easy. I'm starting to think it's some odd bug in the IP stack in the latest build. FWIW, WOL works fine on the three systems I've tried it on. I'm fresh out of ideas now, so we must hope you stumble upon something.
    Well, thanks for all the helpful suggestions. I blame MS because it was working fine until an automatic Windows update caused a crash resulting in a re-installation of the O/S. None of the repair or recovery options would work by the way!

    If I ever find a solution I'll post it up of course.

    Ed - Are the machines you tested running build 1709?

    Yes: all I have up and running right now is either production 1709, or Insider Preview versions that are newer than that (Windows 10 Pro Build 17101.1000, currently). Does that help, or hurt, here?

    I was running Insider Previews for quite a while but stopped because the program became too intrusive on my everyday activities.

    Thanks for the info.
