when i do the ethtool -s eth0 wol g it goes like this
[root@localhost admin]# ethtool -s eth0 wol g
Cannot get current wake-on-lan settings: Operation not supported
not setting wol
I have been trying to turn on my linux box using the wol program from a windows box, but it says in someway that the client is non reachable , the only way the magic packets is recieved is when i turn on the pc and i suppose it should not be that way hmm.
can anyone help set this ? i checked my bios settings but it seems to be old , the 3 pin connector is connect from the NIC to the motherboard but still doesn't work. what can i do ?
I believe, but don't hold me to this, that WOL is controlled by the BIOS. So if it isn't there, your BIOS doesn't support it. Have you tried googling for you BIOS to see what info there is? Or flashing your BIOS with the latest version?
