Wake up on lan from power off state
Posted on 2007-11-14
I've got a problem trying to configure my Dell Optiplex 745 (and I assume my 755) to wake up on lan from a powered off state. I have enabled the wake up on lan option in the bios, but my machines will not wake up using my remote wake up tool (something I downloaded off the net called rw.exe (essentially the same as Magic Packet)).
Anyway - I'm figuring that either my network card, a Broadcom NetXtreme 57xx, is not capable of wake on lan or it needs to be configured to allow wake on lan from a powered state.
Is anyone able to help me here. Pretty Please?????!!!!!
