I've got a Biostar TA790GXBE motherboard with onboard Realtek RTL8168D NIC. This has three boxes under Power Management: Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power Allow this device to wake the computer Only allow a magic packet to wake the computer I've added a Realtek 8139B NIC which only has the first option, with the second greyed out and the third not present. However, under Advanced it has: Shutdown Wake on Lan: Enabled Wake on Lan Capabilities: Magic Packet & Pattern Match Wakeup on ARP/Ping: Enabled Wakeup on Link Change: Disabled Wakeup using APM Mode: Disabled I want to connect this NIC to the router for Internet access, with the onboard Gigabit NIC connected directly to another PC for RDP. If I run a WOL monitor, I can see it receives the Magic Packet on this interface, but it refuses to wake from shutdown, hibernate or standby. In the BIOS it only has two relevant options: Power-on by PCIE/onboard LAN Wakeup by PCI Is there any way to get WOL working with this card or will I have to give up on this idea?
