Windows 7: Using WOL with Pattern Match on Asus P5B

Using WOL with Pattern Match on Asus P5B

Ok, I've gone through every BIOS, network card, and windows setting I can find any reference to over the last 48 hours, to no avail. I've mostly isolated the problem, just can't find anything that shows me how to fix it.

System Details:
Asus P5B-Deluxe w/ WiFi, Latest BIOS Update
On-board Marvell Yukon 88E8001/8003/8010 PCI Gigabit Ethernet Controller - Enabled and being used - latest Driver installed
On-board Marvell Yukon 88E8056 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller - Disabled and unplugged - latest Driver installed
Intel Core2Duo E6800
ATI Radeon HD3870

In a nutshell: I've got the system setup so that the network card SHOULD only wake up the computer if it sees the "Pattern Match" packets which have supposedly been improved in Windows 7. Magic Packet just won't work for what I need, so I disabled that even for the sake of ruling out issues.

Issue: Any time ANY network traffic comes across the network card, the computer comes out of sleep, even though I'm quite sure they don't fit the "pattern match" that it's supposed to be looking for. I've done packet sniffing etc, and the card is behind a switch all by itself. I have proved this theory a number of ways, including disconnecting every other device on the network which allows the computer to stay asleep, but as soon as you turn another device on, this one wakes up.

So, what I need to know is, is there something I'm missing regarding the pattern match packets?

Any ideas here? I'm at my wits-end.


/edit/ This gives some pretty detailed info on the Pattern Match details, but it didn't fix my specific issues.

I am having an issue with my Sabertooth X79, if I leave Wake on Pattern Match enabled, motherboard will randomly wake, sometimes within a few minutes of sleeping. I never actively gone out my way to configure anything with Pattern Match, I have to leave this disabled to stop computer from waking. I assume I have a similar issue to yourself? Did you ever get to the bottom of this?

Unfortunately I never did find a solution, and eventually gave up. I would love to have another hack at it if anyone ever posts some ideas...
