Difference Between Wake up on LAN and On Board Wake up on LAN ???

Q: Difference Between Wake up on LAN and On Board Wake up on LAN ???

I have ASUS G72.
Logmein software is able to wake the computer up with On Board Wake up is disabled or enabled in BIOS.

I have also Toshiba L505D.
Logmein software can wake the computer up only if Wake up on LAN is enabled in BIOS.

What is the difference between ASUS BIOS's On Board Wake up option and Toshiba BIOS's Wake up on LAN option?

UPDATE: I found out that ASUS's Option was for diskless boot and using network hard disks as hard disks. Nothing to do with Wake up on LAN.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Difference Between Wake up on LAN and On Board Wake up on LAN ???

One thing that could make a BIG difference here is the fact one is a PC and the other is notebook. The ATX Form Factor standard for PCs calls for the power supply to deliver +5Vsb standby voltage to various parts of the motherboard, to include the front panel power switch, RAM (for hibernate modes), and various devices (keyboard, mouse, NIC) for such "Wake on...". commands.

A notebook, however, does not have this standby voltage because obviously, it would run down the battery if the charger is not plugged in.

Hi,

I am new here. Hoping someone can help me out with this issue. I work in IT so am not a complete computer bonehead and am at my wits end with this.

My laptop is about 4 years old, it's a toshiba. For whatever reason, it started taking 5+ minutes to wake up from sleeping. If it sleeps for an hour, it's OK.. but if you leave it sleep all night and try to wake it up in the morning, it's quite cranky. After the 5+ minute wake up, it performs as normal. It was running Windows 7 Home 32 bit.

Troubleshooting steps that I have taken are as follows.

Reinstalled windows. Issue was resolved! but after about 2-3 weeks, issue came back. I thought maybe it was some type of windows update, so I reinstalled windows again and paid closer attention to the updates. Issue presented itself again after 2-3 weeks, and there were no updates immediately done prior to it starting.

I started to think maybe it was something related to my hard drive, so i performed laptop surgery and swapped out my original hard drive with a solid slate drive, and installed windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit (this laptop can support 64 bit so I figured why not upgrade.).

issue again was resolved for a few weeks, and now it's back to taking 5+ minutes to wake up again.

If you're turning the laptop on from scratch, it takes 10-15 seconds tops. if you're restarting, it's 10-15 seconds tops (man, I love SSD...)... if you're waking itup within the hour, its 1-2 seconds. But anything longer then that, 5+ minutes.

It's not clear to me what 'Wake by Thunderbolt' (hereafter WbT) does and whether or not it's required for 'Wake On LAN' (hereafter WOL).  In the T470s and T480s user guides, there's no mention that WbT is required for WOL so I'm thinking it's not.  But then again, since Ethernet is in the dock itself, and seeing how there are controls for PXE, I could see how it might be required. ReferencesT470s User GuideT480s User Guide

I have a Dell Optiplex 755 with WinXPPro SP3, 2GB RAM and an Intel Core 2 Duo E4600, and it is unreliable for Wake on LAN and Wake on Ring. I also wonder whether my Standby - Sleep - Suspend (S1 or S3) is working correctly.

When the PC is in Standby - Sleep - Suspend mode (S1 or S3), Wake on LAN and Wake on Ring work some of the time but not all of the time, and I'd like them to be 100% reliable.

These may be two different problems, but your advice will be appreciated. (Also, if I should post in a different forum, please advise.)

My Network Card is an Intel 82566DM-2 Gigabit Network Connection, and I recently upgraded its drivers using "generic" PROXP.exe from the Intel website, although this has not helped the problem. The specific driver file e1e5132.sys is now from 2009 -- it used to be from 2007. But, as I say, Wake on LAN from Standby was not and is still not reliable, both before and after the driver update.

In Settings .. Network Connections ... Local Area Connections ... Properties ... Configure ... Power Management, all the Wake on LAN options are checked ON:

- Wake on Directed Packet
- Wake on Magic Packet
- Wake on Magic Packet from Power Off State
- Wake on Link

But is there a way to re-install -- or maybe fix -- Windows that leaves everything else safe?

My main system has Windows7 and I have an HP Proliant Microserver with Windows Home Server 2011 (probably irrelvant) and Wake on LAN hardware. The server is "off" right now, but the LAN activity light is blinking, so the LAN card has retained power (for the W-o-L function).

Do I have all I need to wake the server from my desktop, or do I need to install extra software (to send the "magic packet", to wake the server). If I need 3rd party software, then what is recommended?

A:wake on LAN

You need to make sure your hardware supports wake on LAN (WOL.) Configuring WOL comes in a couple of parts. First your motherboard has to support the feature. Next, your network card also needs to support WOL. From the motherboard's BIOS, you need to go to the WOL settings and set that part of it up. This ensures that power is still applied to the NIC so it can receive the magic packet which triggers the wake up. Depending on your NIC, you may have to wire in a jumper which connects the NIC to the motherboard via a 2/3 wire cable (I forget which one.) This cable is to provide the trigger voltage to get the motherboard to power up the system. Some NICs can do it via the PCI bus.

Last piece is to get the magic packet utility which crafts the WOL packet and puts it on the wire. The way the utility works is you enter the MAC address of the NIC you want to receive the magic packet.

If you're doing this to wak the PC so you can use the attached printer, you're better off just buying a print server.

On my networked laptop I am trying to send magic packets. I'm using a wake on lan program from magicpacket.free.fr

So far I've sent packets using 4 different configurations:
1.
IP address (192.168.100.150)
subnet mask 255.255.255.255
port 9
mac address (xx-xx-xx-xx-xx)

2. IP address (192.168.100.150)
subnet mask 0.0.0.0
port 9
mac address

3. external IP address (66.183.50.30)
subnet mask 255.255.255.255
port 9
mac address

4. external IP address (66.183.30.50)
subnet mask 0.0.0.0
port 9
mac address

All four configuration send magic packets to the Vista PC which show up on the packet sniffer (I have port 9 forwarding to 192.168.100.150). However, only configurations 2 and 4 will actually wake up PC if it is sleeping. I don't understand why that would be case. This is important to me because in the end I want to use my linux NAS to send a magic packet to the Vista PC. However, the program that I have on the NAS for this purpose does not allow me to set the subnet mask. I suspect that it defaults to 255.255.255.255, because the NAS is unable to wake up the Vista PC (but when awake the Vista PC receives the packet just like all of the examples above).

thanks

A:help with wake on lan

My method for WOL with our Vista boxes at work:

Device Manager > Network Controller > Advanced > WakeOnLAN From PowerOFF > Enabled
Device Manager > Network Controller > Power Management > Allow the computer to turn off this device: unchecked
Device Manager > Network Controller > Power Management > Allow this device to wake the computer: checked


When I want to wake one, I simply ping it.

Granted, with this configuration, the occasional broadcast/icmp traffic will wake one up at random... but as long as that's not a big deal for you, the above should work just fine.

I'm upgrading my current media server to a more powerful one and it's coming with Windows 7. My current one has Vista and I never tried to do this on it, so not even sure if it is possible.

The server basically sits in my office and stores a bunch of media- movies, TV shows, music, that I've ripped from my own personal collection onto my hard drives. It also holds hundreds or thousands of photos, songs I've written, all the other stuff like that. I have shared folders that I can access from my Macs and iTunes running all the time to stream media to Apple TV's.

What I'd like to do, ideally, is have my computer go to sleep after I'm done using it. Maybe after 15 minutes of idle, or even a couple hours- just so it's not running 24/7 like the current one.

I'd like for it to wake up when I click my shortcut in the dock to a shared drive on the server, or by turning on the Apple TV or trying to access a movie, etc.

If it can't be completely sleeping, I'm up for other energy saving methods, but my main goal is to keep the system ready to stream etc, using as little energy as possible when not being used.

Any suggestions appreciated!

(Windows 7 n00b)

Thnx

A:Wake by LAN? Etc...

I guess there are programs on the internet that can put it to hibernation/standby/shut down at a set time, or after being idle.

As for waking it up; Some computers start up from standby just by moving the cursor, or disconnecting a USB, basically by anything happening to it.

Sorry i'm not much of a help, but maybe it will give you some ideas ;)!

My quistion to you is that will I need any soft ware on the client end to
put on or do i just install the nic card, plug in the 3 ping connector andaway i go? having difficulty googling that specific question.

thanks in advance!

You need to enable the WOL capability, usually in the BIOS setup. Obviously, your MB also has to support the capability. What make/model is the MB in question?

Please bear with me as I'm very much new to this. My laptop run on Win 7 and my Desktop (server) runs XP. The network is already setup to work with in the office. My desktop is connected to a modem and my laptop connect wireless to the desktop via the modem. I use my laptop from time to time in the field and than needs to connect to my back end db that is on my desktop (sometimes the desktop is off due to power failure or when it is shutdown I want to start it remotely). I downloaded WOL but do not know how to implement it. Must I install WOL on both computers

Please help me through the steps

Q: Wake up

Each time I wake my PC (Windows 7), it relist's all my connected hardware, HDD's, jump drives, etc. (shows pane asking what I want to do with the drive).
Is there any way to stop this?
Thanks
Bret

A:Wake up

Hi! N2Abyss, welcome to 7F

Sounds like it is rebooting when it wakes. Can you look into the BIOS when it starts to see if there is a setting there?

Also check the event viewer logs to see if there might be an error associated when this happens.

I have 2 Win7 x86 machines on a LAN. I can wake the desktop (192.168.1.2) from the laptop (192.168.1.3) using mc-wol.exe utility and the appropriate MAC address.
I have also created a batch file that works manually, if I add to the startup folder it works but only when the local user logs on. How do I run the *.bat file during the boot sequence, without logging on? Is this possible in Win7?

Sorted, used Scheduled Task and created a new teask to initiate the batch file during start-up.

A:WOL - Wake on LAN

Shouldnt have to run any batch file... just enable WOL in bios and send the WOL signal to the pc u want to wake up.

Has anyone had success in getting the XPS 15 (9550) to work with wake on lan on either the local network (WOL) or the wide network (WOW).
 
I’m somewhat experienced in WOL/WOW with various computers over the years, but have not been able to do so with the XPS 15.
 
Because the XPS 15 has no built in ethernet port, it requires the use of a USB 3.0 or Thunderbolt ethernet adapter.
 
I am currently using the Anker 3-Port USB 3.0 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter (RTL 8153 chipset + USB Ports VL812 chipset according to online specs). With the Anker adapter, the ethernet works very well. However, I can’t WOL/WOW to work using my time tested procedures.
 
The XPS Bios Power Management Tab has support for Wake on WLAN and USB Wake Support. I configured both to be active. I also configured System Configuration/USB PowerShare as active.
 
I downloaded the latest drivers for the Anker adapter (Dec 2015) and found the expected options for WOL/WOW in the Device Manager/Network Adapers/Realtek USB Gbe Family Controller/Power Management and Advanced tabs.
 
Upon shutting down the XPS, the green indicator light on the Anker adapter also shuts off, which causes me to suspect that there is no power with which to accept the magic packet signal. However, the USB 3.0 hub is powered to some degree, enough to start charging an iphone.
 
If anyone has had any success with wake on lan with the XPS, or has any ideas/recommendations, please advise.
