I am trying to turn on my PC over the LAN, and I am having problems. Here is what I have done.

Supported ports: [ MII ]
Supported link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
Supports auto-negotiation: Yes
Advertised link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full

Supports Wake-on: pg
Link detected: yes
/usr/sbin/ethtool -s eth0 wol g
Cannot set new wake-on-lan settings: Operation not supported
not setting wol
