  18. VLAN Id - 1
  19. Wake on Magic Packet - Enabled
  20. Wake on pattern match - Enabled
  21. WakeOnLAN From PowerOff - Enabled

I'd be tempted to change to opposing settings on items 1, 2, 7, 8, 9, 12, 13 (setting the speed to the maximum bandwidth the adapter is built for under the last item, which is presumably Gigabit LAN...)
