Okay, i have installed it on another Ubuntu system but i am unsure on what to do now. I made a search on "wakeonlan" to see what files it installed but i am not sure if its something i can use or not. I made a picture as you can see below i hope it gives you guys a clue.

What you want you need to find out is what files the wakeonlan package provides which you can do with

Code:
$ dpkg -L wakeonlan
In this case the only interesting file is /usr/bin/wakeonlan which is a perl script

Code:
$ file /usr/bin/wakeonlan
/usr/bin/wakeonlan: a /usr/bin/perl -w script text executable
So find out if perl is installed on your NAS.

Code:
$ which perl
If it is then you can try copying the /usr/bin/wakeonlan file over to your NAS and see if it works. It might, or it might not depending on whether various other perl related bits that the script uses are also already on the NAS. If you've got perl on the NAS, but not other require bits, you can try working out which perl bits need to be copied over. The wakeonlan package depends on two other packages use

Code:
$ apt-cache search wakeonlan
to see them. The 'dpkg -L' command mentioned above will show you which files those packages provide.

Its not going to well to be honest. Look below

Code:
$ dpkg -L wakeonlan
This one isnt working for me i just get the reply "-sh: dpkg: command not found"

Code:
$ which perl
And this one dosent return anything at all, it just jumps to the next line.


Maybe i need to find another solution for my problem, do it in some other manner. I am getting the feeling that this system realy isnt made to be used for anything else then the NAS client.

You need to run that on the machine on which you have wakeonlan installed, not on your NAS.

If there is no output then you don't have perl installed.

After a world of pain I found a solution. I found a package I could install on my NAS that’s called “Optware” which allows the use of ipkg. I was able to install a Wake on Lan pack with the command

Code:
ipkg install wakelan
I just wanted to let you know, and thank you for all your dedication in this matter!! You where most helpful and I think I learned allot more about linux so thanks arizonagroovejet!
