Could someone tell me precisely what is to be enabled in the BIOS or anywhere else to use the WOL function on a P5Q ?
I use a "freebox" (a modem provided by a french internet provider, which transmits TV, DSL and phone trough the ethernet plug), which is also configured as a router.
Is it power on by PCIE device, or PCI device, or external modems, that i have to enable ? Any other things to check ?
Thanks in advance.
Power On By PCI Devices - likely triggered by PME pin in PCI slot
Power On by PCI Express devices - likely triggered by WAKE# pin in PCI Express slot
The Ethernet chip on your board is referred to as Atheros L1E, but
it appears Atheros bought Attansic, and it might be an Attansic
chip. It may be PCI Express, so in the BIOS, I'd want to enable the
second setting of the two.
(L1E not listed)
Then, in Windows, you'd need to get to the properties page for the
Ethernet adapter, and select the appropriate flavor of WOL there.
Chips support different kinds of waking. For example, some chips
support a mode where they'll wake up when any packet is received.
They may also have a mode for waking only when a Magic Packet
is received. On my current computer, there are two separate
settings, such as WakeOnLan from PowerOff [Enable] and
Allow This Device To Bring The Computer Out Of Standby.
The second Ethernet chip on my motherboard, has six options
for WakeOnLan in the properties page for that chip. One
option being Link Change (which presumably is triggered
if the LAN LED on the back of the computer changes state,
such as when power is applied to the router).
Details of that nature are not typically documented,
because many Ethernet chips do not have datasheets
available for them. Companies like Marvell or Intel
are more likely to have full featured designs.
Purchasing a separate Ethernet card is one
solution, if the onboard Ethernet doesn't have
the necessary feature in the Properties page.
