This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Hello, I posted about this on the ubuntu networking forums but the thread quickly was buried with no replys.. Figured I would ask over here.
The short story is I'm wondering if anyone has successfully setup wake on wireless lan (magic packet to the wireless mac, while system is in sleep/suspend, while running linux. Specifically ubuntu 12.04)
I know for a fact my laptop supports WoWlan, because I dual boot windows 7, and when i sleep the laptop while on the windows partition, I can wake it up by sending a magic packet to the wireless mac address. If I try the same procedure while in ubuntu, it fails. The laptop will wake on eth0 magic packet, if sleeping but not if sent to wlan0 (if that makes sense, while running ubuntu).
My understanding is that the linux kernel (I'm running 3.3.5 currently) has supported wowlan for some time, as well as the wireless drivers (my wireless card is a intel centrino advance-n 6250)
Please if anyone has any experience with this, I would like to hear your thoughts or if anyone has any questions, also let me hear them.
Understandably this is a little frustrating simply because it works in one OS but not the other.
Thanks in advance for any assitance,

Reason: clarified something.
Peacedog, thanks for the welcome, and for the response.
I took a quick look at both of those links, it appears they both are geared towards wake-on-lan, as opposed to wake on wireless lan.
I'll have to read them more thouroughly but I am having zero problems with wake-on-lan on my laptop. If I have the laptop physically plugged into my network and I send a magic packet to the wired mac address, it will wake the laptop from power-off or sleep state no problem.
it's the wake on wireless that i'm trying to get working. If i boot the laptop into windows, it works but not from ubuntu 12.04.
Again, thanks for trying to help, I'll see if either of those links make any mention of wake-on-wireless.
I have been trying to find solution to the same problem the past one week with no luck , I tried the last link above but I am looking for some solution which is connected with the native functionality of the system itself
Distribution: Slackware, Windows, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Mac OS X
Hi cursez, Welcome to LQ. I haven't done any research on this lately, but the last I read it was only possible with Intel chipsets at the time. There may be more availability by now as this thread is a bit old.
