Wake-on-lan - can you set NSA-221 to wake on magic packet?

I've read a lot about Wake-on-lan in the ZyXEL NSA-221, but everyone is talking about it from the wrong end from what I am looking for. Like how you use the NSA-221 to broadcast a WOL packet on your local subnet. I installed the FFP 0.7 on an usb key, but didn't seem to find the feature I was looking for: I would really like to be able to wake up the NSA-221 with a broadcast packet from my router (ether-wake -b [mac address]). That doesn't seem possible, but I wanted to hear around here if anyone had played with it and got it to work. Or confirm that it isn't possible.

I don't think it's possible. I haven't tried it (don't have an 221), but AFAIK there are no Oxnas based NASses which support WOL. So I think this SoC just don't support it.
(And in case you wonder, your Nas is doesn't contain much more than an Oxnas SoC.)
