Welcome to thinkpads.com!

Wake-on-LAN should work if it is enabled properly and the packet sent correctly. I would suggest reading this article:

https://www.howtogeek.com/70374/how-to- ... enable-it/

and if you still cannot get it to work, then come back and we will see what we can do. To keep things simple, I would first try using a hard-wired ethernet connection instead of trying to do this over wireless (WiFi) and see if it works there. If it does, then try wireless.
