    Hello everyone

    I have a problem configuring WOL, in that the NIC will turn off during standby, even if I disable 'turn off this device to save power'.

    I should also note that occasionally the disable feature will re-enable itself for no apparent reason.

    When I turn the device back on from standby (through the method of sneakernet) it will say 'Local Area Connection is now connected', so I can easily determine that the reason my Wake-On-Lan isn't functioning is because of a NIC turning off.

    Does anybody have any ideas on what I should do?
