Hello guys (& girls),

I'm trying to set up my computer for waking on lan and I'm not sure if my motherboard (GA-7N400 Pro2, 'http://www.giga-byte.com/MotherBoard/Products/Products_GA-7N400%20Pro2.htm) has that capability.  The integrated LAN is a Realtek 8110S Gigabit LAN controller & under its advanced settings, WOL is enabled.  It says on the giga-byte's web site that there is a WOL pin header available.  I see the letters WOL on the board but it doesn't look like there are pins- just solder over where it is supposed to be.  The manual for the board does not make any references to a WOL connector.  Is it required to have a WOL connector if the adapter is integrated? If not do I even have the capability.  I believe I also enabled the proper settings in the BIOS.  Another thing- after playing with the settings in power management, I was still not able to get the lights next to integrated LAN lit. Thank you for all of your help out there!
