Windows 7: Wake On WAN doesn't work after extended period

Wake On WAN doesn't work after extended period

Alright,

Wake on LAN always works.

Wake on WAN works via dslreports after very short period of time after sleep.

Wake on WAN DOES NOT work after long period (~5+ minutes after sleep)


It would appear I have the correct settings set given the scenario. I've done the obvious.. Set BIOS and Windows settings correctly to my knowledge. I'm lost as to why I can't get it to wake up on wan after while. Any help... Very much appeciated. Thanks.

I have a computer that I use as a media center. I had been running Vista Ultimate x64. Using this OS I was able to use WOL just fine. All I had to do was enable WOL in the BIOS and in the network card properties. Against my better judgment I decided to try an upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate...
