Wake on Lan does not work. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have my Windows 7 set up so that when it is asleep it will wake up when a request from another computer on the network files a request. Well it will not wake and allow access. I have tried turning off password on waking from sleep, but that does not work either. Is there a work around, or do I have to turn off sleep all together?

  • You may have to set the wake option in the BIOS setup, and also in the Properties of the Network Adapter (device manager)
