    My gigabit NIC works great with this howto under Hardy.
    Code:
      *-network:1

    Red face Re: HOWTO: Set your system up for Wake On LAN (WOL)

    Hello all,

    I'm now getting officially frustrated with my motherboard an WOL.

    Motherboard ASUS P5K-E

    WOL works fine when starting after a WinXP session.

    Followed the guides and I'm pretty sure that everything went according to the steps mentioned in this thread.

    What differs my NIC from the problematic ones mentioned in this thread is that the led is lit (orange one). Then when I send my packet the otherone that indicates network traffic flashes rapidly.

    So I assume that the problem is not whether or not the NIC is set to receive WOL-messages but that it doesn't do anything with them.

    Does anyone know how to mend this, because I'm going MAD soon!!!

    A couple of posters in this thread asked about wake on LAN from suspend mode. We need to make it clear that waking from suspend is a completely different ball of wax than waking from a shut-down state. Check this thread for more info and a small guide I posted near the bottom.

    This could be potentially useful for you, in particular the NETDOWN setting. No gaurantees, but it might be worth a try.

    Arrow Wake up computer over Internet

    One more way is to remotely wake up PC over Internet with a service "Wake-On-LAN Online" - http://www.wakeonlan.me.

    It can be used with any device connected to the Internet and allows simple wake up PC just with a link to the page of the site with necessary MAC and IP address.

    Furthermore the wake up can be scheduled for certain time and date and the site will wake up the PC automatically in that time.

    More info on Wake-On-LAN configuration is available at http://wakeonlan.me/kb/tech/wakeonlan.php

    Re: HOWTO: Set your system up for Wake On LAN (WOL)

    guys, I have two question for you:

    1. Can you turn on a PC which was previously shut down using WOL? I mean if you type:
    Code:
    sudo halt
    and shut down your PC, can you turn it on again by sending the wake-up packet?

    I can only wake mine up when it is suspended. It doesn't not wake up if the PC was shut down using the above command.

    2. Why should WOL need an OS setting any way? If the bios let's the ethernet card to watch for the magic packet, it should be able to turn on the computer when that packet is received regardless of what OS you have, shouldn't it?

    BIOS won't leave the NIC in a WOL listening state unless it's told to. This is why you have to run a script on shutdown.

    As a quick note to those who were having problems with wol not functioning after a few minutes (or few seconds) of the computer being turned off, I believe it's something to do with the router connected to your machine.

    A lot of routers seem to have issues dealing with forwarded rules to inactive machines, especially after they have cleared the ARP cache (after all, the machine isn't present). If you can add a static ARP entry for your computer, it 'should' fix the problem.

    Re: HOWTO: Set your system up for Wake On LAN (WOL)

    Wow thanks Chris Tucker it was really bugging me that i couldn't start the Server remotely,

    Just a note under my BIOS i didn't have a option for WOL but i did have an option for "modem ring resume" which enabled the WOL support also i turned on the option for the server to boot up automaticaly following a power outage or more specfically to return to previous state
