Windows 7: Remote wake MCE from xbox / Wake on Lan

Remote wake MCE from xbox / Wake on Lan

When I was using MCE 2005, I used to be able to wake my MCE via xbox360. After I upgraded to Windows 7, I seem to have lost this functionality.

My initial suspect was that Wake on Lan is not working. When I check my driver setting on Windows 7 machine, it is checked so I would assume it is set correctly.

Anyone knows what could be the problem? Or any experience to share?

Thanks.

Those setting mentioned, WoL in the BIOS. THere are also some settings in power management that effect this.

I have checked the driver setting and it is set correctly.

I have check the bios but there is no settings that I could find that relates to wake on lan.

Any other suggestion?

Did you go through all your power settings? Go to advanced settings to see them all.

My BIOS has no Wake on Lan setting either. However, it is enabled by default.
