      Add static ARP to Sagem F@ST 2504 running Custom Sky V2.8 Firmware on PC boot?

      I had script that was fed into netcat to add a static ARP entry to my router every time my computer boots. This is required for me to perform WOL over the net. If I don't do this (or just do it manually) the router eventually loses the ARP entry and will not start the PC.

      For some reason the script is no longer working having worked fine for a year or 2.

      Does anyone know a way to telnet or ssh into the router at PC start-up (e.g. a batch file in the start-up folder) so the ARP can be added each time the PC boots?

      Just to add the router does seem a bit sluggish when logging in using the web interface. Could it be corrupted in some way?

      Unfortunately Sky blocked any ability to Telnet into their routers.

      I managed to get it working again. I think the script that is fed into netcat has to be formatted in a certain way. I can't find any help on the subject but with a bit of playing around managed to get it functioning again.

      I have no idea why it stopped working in the first place though :/
