wakeonlan and ip_rt_bug

If you encounter something like this:

kernel: [811842.838329] ip_rt_bug: ->, ?

while using wakeonlan on your Linux box, you have forgotten to set the broadcast address correctly with the -i parameter of wakeonlan.

Always call wakeonlan with the correct broadcast address of your LAN:

wakeonlan -i aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff
