what kind of Network Card (NIC) supports Wake-on-Lan? It seems that all the PCMCIA Network card do NOT support wake-on-Lan, is it true?

Also, I found that some newer PCI Network cards which support WOL, do not need a separate cable to connect to the motherboard, but the montherboard must support PCI 2.2, right?

Although my board support WOL, it only supports PCI 2.1. Is it no way to use the newer kind of NIC?

thanks in advance.

You should look at the box on the LAN card before you buy. Many NIC (such as Intel) nowadays support this fuction.

Yes

No. You should either upgrade your motherboard or change your LAN card. Of course, change the LAN change is easier and cheaper

You are welcome....

Also for software, you can go to download.com and find Poweroff. It is a good tool to make WOL works... I am using it to boot my company's computers..
