I have a Asus M2N-E SLI motherboard and wake on lan problem. I never used this feature but now it would come really handy.
Anyhow, I have enabled the feature in Bios and on the network card (motherboard integrated) in Windows (7 Pro 32bit). If I shut down my computer, the lights on the ethernet plugin blinks, so I am sure that network adapter still works. But it won't wake the computer up if I send a package (I tried using wolcmd.exe)
If I put the computer into stand by and then try wolcmd.exe, it works. Sadly I don't need that feature...
Did anybody have any problems using WOL on Asus motherboards?
I don't know what motherboard you have but in the UEFI BIOS have you enabled the "Power on by PCIE/PCI" option in 'advanced mode' Advanced>APM?
Otherwise, in Windows, try enabling the "Shutdown Wake-on-Lan", "Wake on Magic Packet" and "Wake on Pattern Match" in the advanced tab in your NIC preferences.
Also go to the power management tab and (making sure the 2nd and 3rd boxes are ticked) untick the "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" box.
To WOL over the internet, you will have to open a port on your router.
I assume they need the IP to connect to the computer you want to WOL and the MAC address because it is contained in the Magic Packet.. Correct me if I'm wrong please.
