    WOL on local network


    Hi everyone

    I have two PC's on my LAN running Windows 10 ver 19042.572.

    I've just upgraded some bits on PC2 and reinstalled Windows. Before the upgrade, I was able to open up a RDP session and if PC2 was in a sleep state, it would wake it without the need for sending a magic packet to it.

    Now with the fresh install, this does not happen, however sending a magic packet through does wake it from it's sleep state and I am able to connect on to it.

    Would anyone know what setting needs to be changed to allow network traffic to wake the PC?

    WOL is enabled in the BIOS
    Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power is checked
    Allow this device to wake the computer is check
    Hibernate is disabled
    Fast startup is disabled

    :)

    Laptop updated to 1809. Can't get WOL to send out...

    Not sure the topic is exactly accurate. Here's the story:

    • Have been successful sending WOL to 2 other PCs in the house
    • Had problems with laptop and sent to HP. They upgraded it to 1809
    • Now when I send WOL packets the other PCs will not wake up

    Given that it was working fine on those PCs before, and the noted changes are to the PC sending the packet, I'm assuming that my sending PC needs something configured.

    My searches on WOL only find stuff about setting it up on the remote PC so it will wake up.

    Any suggestions about why my sending PC is not sending?

    Marvell Yukon 88e8056 ethernet WOL not working since upgrading to Windows 10

    Hi Kalpana,

    Thank you for you quick reply. I am not sure that article is of use as the network connectivity is working perfectly apart from the WOL function. i will follow step 6 just to be 100% sure but this seems to be a Windows 10/ Driver issue. As the Windows official
    driver does not resolve this problem, is there anything else you can suggest or do?

    WOL on local network

    Laptop updated to 1809. Can't get WOL to send out...

    Card is Intel, and am using Intel driver.

    My card is listed so should be good to go.

    and I got:

    Next I tried:
    Worked.

    So, I tried my WOL apps, and they work now too.

    I'm not seeing anything I actually changed, but I'm not complaining ;=)

    Thanks for your help.
