I have been having some problems with Wake-on-LAN (WOL) and I need some help.
First, I have a "HP Media Center PC m1264n" with Windows XP Media Center Edition. According to the HP site, it has an Asus PTGD-LA motherboard (also listed as Goldfish3-GL8E)
I also have a new D-Link DFE-5300TX+ (rev F) Ethernet card that I use to get to the internet.
So, a while ago I found about WOL and decided to try it. I have sucuessfully forwarded the right ports to my router's brodcast address, and using many different magic packet tools and a packet sniffer on another computer on my network and the blinking activity lights on my router, I have confirmed that the magic packets are getting sent.
But, my computer won't turn on. Here are the WOL related settings that I have checked:
in the properties for the e-net card I have checked "allow the computer to turn this device off to save power" and "allow this device to bring the computer out of standby" and under the advanced tab, I have set "wake up type" to 'all'. Also in the BIOS, the only WOL related thing I found was enable WOL in S4 (and I enabled it) what does the S4 mean?
The e-net came with a 3 pin cable to connect it to the motherboard somewhere, but I can't find where to put it. But when I turn my computer off, the green lights on the e-net card are still on, so is the cable even needed. And if it is, could someone tell me where to connect it (motherboard and computer listed above)
I have tried UDP ports 7, 8, and 9, as well as some other random ports over the internet, and just a subnet brodcast
Are there any settings that I missed, or do I need to connect the WOL cable somewhere
Any help is appreciated
