Trace route determines the path to a destionation (if not prohibited by firewalls). Is is being impelemented for very fast path determination.
(WoL) Wake-on-LAN allows you to wake up a device via your network, the internet or VPN by sending a magic packet to wake it up. Please note that the remote device must be configured to listen to those kind of packets for being able to be woken up.
For WoL to work you should always configure the LAN Broadcast address instead of host address to prevent problems with timeouted arp caches and thus not possible packet delivery within the target network. (e.g. for Host 192.168.1.42 network mask 255.255.255.0 you should use 192.168.42.255 as WoL host address)
The Wake on LAN feature has been successfully tested with Airport Express, Airport Extreme, TimeCapsule and quite some other vendor's devices such as Cisco, Draytek, AVM routers. In bridged, routed LANs as well as over the Internet through IPSEC VPN connections.
