    Wake on Lan - Not Working


    My Inspiron 7586 does not wake on lan when the signal is sent from my phone or another PC if thte PC is sleeping. My network card and the BIOS are both set to be active for wake on lan.


    I would appreciate any assistance since Dell seems to be of no help (the "tech" did not even know what a wake on lan was).

    :)

  2. Wake On LAN is Not Working


    I have been unable to get Wake on LAN functionality to work in Windows 10:

    • I am attempting to do a Wakeup on LAN to my desktop computer which is running Windows 10 from my laptop which is also running Windows 10. The desktop computer is connected to my router through a wired Ethernet connection and the laptop is connected to the same router via a wireless connection
    • I'm doing this within my Local Area Network so I'm not going through a router from the external network
    • I've upgraded the driver on my network adapter to the latest version
    • I've enabled all the required functionality in the BIOS to enable Wake on LAN
    • I've turned on all the required settings in my network adapter to enable Wake on LAN
    • I've disabled "Fast Startup" in Windows 10
    • I'm using the "Wake on LAN" software application from Aquila Technology
    • The software is installed on both my desktop and laptop and I've tested it with the desktop in "listening" mode and verified that the desktop receives "magic" wake-up packets when it is up-and-running
    • When my desktop system is powered down and I send it a Magic Packet in exactly the same way as I did when it was powered up, nothing happens and it doesn't respond to the wake-up packet

    Any suggestions of what I can do to further troubleshoot this problem?

    Thanks,

    Wake on lan not working.

    Hi Raunak,

    Thank you for bringing up your query on Microsoft Community.

    Apologize for the difficulties that you're experiencing in Windows 10.

    Please be assured that we will do our best to help you.


    • What is the make and model of your computer?
    "Wake on LAN" is a powerful and convenient feature that enables users to remotely power up their computer over a network, saving energy while also allowing remote access to the computer when needed. However, Wake on
    LAN, like many features that offer additional convenience, can also create a security risk by enabling power up capability on a computer which should only be powered up locally.

    I suggest you to install Ethernet card drivers from the manufacturers website.

    Also Use Network Configuration Settings. Please follow the below steps to troubleshoot with the issue:

    1. In the Run box type “ncpa.cpl” and click “ok”.

    2. Up next from the window that will be displayed choose “configure”, click on “advanced tab” and pick the “Enable PME” option.

    3. Change the value into “enable”.

    Hope it helps.

    Kindly let us know if you have any further query on Windows, we are happy to assist you.
