Stupid questions may follow:

  * Make sure that the BIOS actually supports wake-on-lan
  * Is there a cable running from your NIC onto the motherboard ?

See ya

interesting reading for you :-)

You didn't tell us what revision of the card or indeed driver you are
using.  If it's a "B" then that's bad as they don't do WOL properly.  If at
all.  "C" cards should WOL OK.  You really need to be using the latest and
greatest driver for these cards to work right - early drivers did strange
things.  It is rather unfortunate that you have these cards - everything is
probably OK hardwarewise.

Have a look at your driver source there may be comments regarding WOL -
what kernel are you running?  You don't have a Abit motherboard do you -
they are strange and have different WOL settings.

Searching on the web a bit more will no doubt find you Donald Becker's
comments on these drivers regarding WOL. Linux Journal Oct 2000 had a nice
little article that used WOL technology.

Are you using the enable_wol=1 3c59x module parameter?

1. waking up a powerbook with ether-wake

I am trying to use a Linux system to send a wake-on-lan packet to a
powerbook that's running MacOS 10.3.x. The command I am using is

ether-wake -D -i eth0 00:30:65:F9:C1:62

So far, it doesn't seem to work. Any suggestions?

-akop

2. hp-hs = ntfs ????

3. "wake many" vs "wake one" in listen/accept

4. HELP Network Errors

5. 3c905c with Wake-on-lan ?

6. Sound editing/mixing software and hardware for Linux?

7. Wake On Lan broken since kernel version 2.4.14

8. Warning messages from /usr/include/arpa/inet.h

9. Wake on Lan

10. wake-on-lan only works when machine is off!

11. How to wake-on-lan ?

12. Wake-on-LAN

13. WOL Wake-ON-LAN: sending Magic Packets
