    WOL Wake on LAN - Dual Boot W7/XP inconsistent

    but was suggested to post it here instead:

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Hello,

     

    WOL works, however its not consistent.

     

     

    DELL DIMENSION 2400 (dual boot) XP-NIC setting gets disabled after successful WOL.

     

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Configuration:

     

    DELL DIMENSION 2400 (dual boot) (to wake up)

     

    XP (installed first) / W7 Enterprise (two partitions on same drive)

     

    BROADCOM 4401 NIC

     

     

    HP Pavilion Media Center (dual boot XP/W8 PRO) (sends magic packet to wake up DELL) 

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     

    After a successful WOL of the DELL DIMENSION 2400, the next WOL never works.

     

    It seems the XP NIC setting for:

     

    Power Management

       Only allow management stations to bring the computer out of standby  (gets disabled)

     

    WOL then works only when the Power Management is re-enabled.

     

    Is there a way to have a consistent WOL for the DELL DIMENSION 2400

    Cheers,

    GR

  • Hello,

    Thanks, but those links don't address the issue.

    "WOL is not consistent."

    It seems the XP, NIC setting for:

     

    Power Management

       Only allow management stations to bring the computer out of standby 

     Gets disabled, after successful WOL.

     

    WOL then works only when that Power Management setting is re-enabled.

    Is there a way that the Power Management setting always stays enabled ?

    Cheers,

    Gary :)
