Windows 7: Wake on Lan (WOL) Working Successfully? Please post MOBO

Wake on Lan (WOL) Working Successfully? Please post MOBO

I really need Wake on Lan to work (you can see my issue thread here: Wake-On-Lan not working after a long sleep)

I'm considering building my own PC parting out a Dell I just purchased.

If your wake on LAN consistently works (ie after being off or asleep for hours at a time, and you can wake it up from outside your local network) using Win7x64 would you mind telling me what motherboard you use and NIC (if not onboard)?

Any suggestions of working setups would be most helpful.

Thanks in advance.

Don't know if you ever got your WOL worked out, but I just posted an answer here:

Has anyone successfully got Outlook Express working in Windows 7?
Yeah, I know the workaround. Virtual XP with Outlook Express, move the shortcut to the all users start menu in XP and I can use it "standalone" in 7. The problem is that when you click any links via this method, they open in the virtual mode's browser, which is really laggy for videos and...
