Windows 7: Wake On lan

windows 7 64 ultimate

same problem here, got a dual boot xp / windows 7 machine.
All normal WOL settings are configured and pc wakes up when shutting down from xp. But not when shutting down from windows 7.

I got ;

win 7 64 ultimate
asus p5b deluxe mainboard with marvell 8001 and 8056 network card.

WIN 7 Home Premium 64bit


Just thought i'd wade in with my WOL experianced with an Acer Aspire M3800 as i came across this form while trying to figure out why i couldnt get WOL working.

I have wol set up for a number of PCs on my network and when I bought this PC it specifically said, WOL ready. So after setting everything in the bois and on the adapter I was extreemly confused as to why it wasn't working.

Long story short - Drivers!

The NIC is an Intel 82567v2 and after going and getting the drivers from Intel more WOL opens appeared in the power management tab regarding WOL. I set these to accept magic packet and bingo, all started working.

Hope this helps someone one day, I never thought OS drivers would matter when the PC is off, live and learn.

...and two years later, I am having problems configuring my M3800.

Thanks for the heads up, I will look at the drivers when I get home.

This is why posting resolutions is so valuable!!!
