Wake-on-Lan over Wifi/WLAN - Possible ??? (1 Viewer)

Just a quick question. I had my router connected through LAN to my HTPC, and could wake up my HTPC while hibernating by sending a magic packet. Great feature if you are too lazy to grab the remote and hit the power button, but even more so if you want remote access.

Now, since then I have moved my router to a different room (to get better wifi coverage across the house), and the HTPC now has a Wifi connection.

Big question: Can I still use Wake-on-Lan ? At the moment, I have a USB Wifi adapter from Netgear, is it possible to use that? Is it possible with a PCI wifi card? or not possible at all ?
