I am planning to buy a second-hand intel Mac Mini to use as a media center, web server and file server. I want the Mini to be asleep as much as possible but also always available. To do this I plan to use the 'wake on demand' feature of Snow Leopard.
However, 'wake on demand' is not available to older Macs. Is it possible to work around this problem?
The only solution I can think of is to use a second router to connect to the AEBS and connect the Mac Mini to the second router via a wired connection. Would this solution work? Are there any other alternatives?
I want to connect to the mac mini via wifi. I guess my question could be stated more clearly as "does the 'wake-on-demand' feature in Snow Leopard work over a wireless-to-ethernet bridge?"
