I also like to do that, but many of my machines seem to not support it,

What are those good guides on how to set it up for Debian?

wiki.debian.org/WakeOnLan was all I needed. man ethtool is worth reading too.
No, those etherwake packets are not IP packets, they're "raw" ethernet
packets and are hence not routable over the internet: you can only send
them from a machine on the same physical ethernet network.
I agree. But there are other tools that send the magic packet as UDP. That way you can send the packet to a local subnet broadcast address and still have the machine wake up.
