You mention that you installed Linux on a seperate HDD and once you booted into Linux the WOL doesn't work anymore.

If you boot into Windows normally as before, shutdown etc... and try WOL again, does it work still?

Before troubleshooting it I'd like to know if it still works at the hardware level. This would be evidence that Windows or Linux is causing an issue and not the hardware.

Seriously??? Again, you are either not reading or understanding what's been said, or are trying to troll folks.

To keep it simple for you, saying what an issue is is not called 'blame', it's called fact. Since, again, you cannot understand what's been said or are just not paying attention, we will again break it down for you:
  • Per the OP's first post, Debian 8 was used, and WOL WAS WORKING
  • Windows was installed on another hard drive and booted, whereupon WOL DID NOT WORK
This is a very, VERY simple bit of deductive reasoning here. Again, this is not 'blame'..it is fact. Again, either it was turned off INTENTIONALLY by the OP in the driver, or whether the driver is old/outdated/etc, and turned it off in that particular version makes ZERO DIFFERENCE; one of those things had to have been done. Running Windows disabled WOL is the short answer.

Again, as Ser Olmy pointed out, only a total power-reset will restore the settings from BIOS, to re-enable WOL.

Also, the OP has posted ONCE, yet this thread has 17 replies now. IMO - I think it's time to let the OP test and get back to us.
