Apple on their website describes a new feature in 10.6 - Mac OS X v10.6: About Wake on Demand. This functionality lets Time-Capsule or Air-port to wake a Mac from the sleep mode. So here comes my question. Is it possible to enable any third party WiFi router to wake my mac?

Welcome to Super User, but please read Are answers that just contain links elsewhere really “good answers”? and Limit to self-promotion in answers? Thanks! – Arjan Oct 16 '10 at 13:57

I don't know of any other devices that implement the Bonjour Sleep Proxy feature, but Apple's implementation is open source, and I don't think there's any reason it couldn't be supported by other manufacturers. There's some discussion here about adding it to Tomato, but it doesn't look like they got it working.
