    The past few months, wireless wake on lan worked perfectly. I used to wake up my iMac with the Remote app on my iPhone to play music on my stereo.

    However, since 2-3 weeks I can't wake up my iMac wireless anymore. I tried:
    - restarting my Airport Extreme
    - checked the things described on this page: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3774
    - turn on iTunes library sharing

    But this all doesn't seem to help. Am I overlooking something?

    Could it have something to do with a recent software update (iTunes, Remote, ...)?

    Well, after trying several other things like resetting PRAM/NVRAM, SMC reset, switching off/on Extreme, it looks like I found a solution.

    I decided to bite the bullet and did a complete reset of my Airport Extreme and configured my network again from scratch. Wireless wake on lan is working great now.

    [Rant] One of the reasons I switched from Windows to Apple was to avoid these kind of reinstalling/deleting/configuring/rebooting/etc.. actions :mad: [/Rant]

    Oh well, everything is working again :)
