Is this computer behind a router? Often a router will ignore incoming pings/packets that the PC itself did not ask for. This is a stealth situation so that external hackers on the internet cannot "see" your computer that's behind your router.

HOW do you get INTO "stealth" mode? [Solved] - Wireless - Networking

"Many home wired and wireless network routers have a feature called "Stealth Mode". Stealth mode allows you to make the computers on the inside of your home network virtually invisible to hackers.

Stealth mode prevents your router from responding to "pings" from hacker's port scanning tools. Hackers use these scanning tools to find unsecured ports and services on your computer. They could use this knowledge to mount a port or service specific attack. By not responding to these requests your router makes it look like there is nothing running inside your network.

Check your router's setup guide for instructions on how to enable this feature if it is available."

If this is your case, you need to see if there's a router setting to disable stealth.

On page 6 and 7 of your UEFI BIOS manual, you should try the settings marked as shown:


PME Wake up from S5
The item enables the system to wake from S5 using PME event.
Options: Disabled (Default) / Enabled

Ring-In Wake up from S5
This item enables the system to wake from S5 using Ring-In event.
Options: Disabled (Default) / Enabled
