Gigabyte EP35-DS3R wake on lan (WOL) with integrated NIC

Hi all,

does anyone have this card and could confirm that WOL with the integrated NIC is not available?

I have RTFM, it mentions Wake on Ring (modem), Wake by keyboard, mouse, PCI activity (called PME), alarm (on time), and I cann't believe that such a basic feature as WOL is not supported.

The last option would be to buy an ethernet card for PCI slot, I guess.

Anyone succeeded with the integrated or external NIC?

Hi Milan - I have the same issue. Did you find an answer?

Yes, I found it - I have put another NIC into PCI :-( It does not have to have a separate cable to attach to the motherboard (there is no plug anyway) since it communicates directly through PCI.

The internal NIC gets powered off once the computer is halted. It is interesting how such an old functionality remains often unsupported by manufacturers.

Thanks Milan.
