WoL no longer working
my WOL is no longer working and i dont know why
i have enabled in the BIOS the power on by PCIe device which is the realtek NIC
i have windows firewall disabled for all public/private/guest networks
i have attached screenshots of what i have configured for the WOL to work
in the adv1/2 i have configured it like so, left the other ones untouched -
energy efficient ethernet - disabled
green ethernet - disabled
shutdown WOL - disabled
wake on magic packet - enabled
wake on pattern match - disabled
WOL and shutdown link speed - 10 - didnt touch this
EDIT - my ethernet is on a private network out of public or guest, is this a problem?
But what you didn't provide is the pfSense WoL details (assuming pfSense WoL is what is being used to send WoL packet).
Or if something other that pfSense WoL is being used to send the WoL packet. Details of that.
yes pfsense is being used to send the wol packet and it just doesnt work, it used to work
i go services > wake on lan type in my mac address and what interface its hooked up to (i get all this detail from diagnostic > arp table)
Packet capture the interface to see if the packet is being sent. Sniff the client interface to see if the packet is being received. If being sent but not received check all points in between. Process of elimination.
found out it was the shutdown wake on lan that was the issue, changed it to enable and while i was in there i enabled patter match, dont know if i need this but oh well
shutdown WOL - enable
wake on pattern match - enable
