Posted on 2006-05-15

I've just installed FreeBSD 5.4-RELEASE and enabled WOL on my ethernet device.  sysctl -a now shows it as dev.sis.0.wake: 1.  But whenever I shut down the system I cannot get it to wake up again.  I can get it to work fine in Fedora with ethtool and in Windows, but cannot seem to get it working here.
