    I built a small PC using the Intel D510M0 motherboard; the board has a RealTek 8111DL Gigabit Ethernet Controller on it and I want to set it up to Wake on LAN so I can start it remotely. I made the following settings in the Bios:

    Wake on LAN from S4/S5 Enabled Power On-Normal Boot: the system will wake from S4/S5 power state when a Wake on LAN packet is received and will follow normal boot order.

    And the following in the Windows 7 Pro settings for the LAN Adapter:

    Realtec PCIe LAN Adpater Wake on Magic Packet = Enabled
    Wake on pattern match = Enabled
    WOL & Shutdown Link Speed = 10 Mbps First

    I powered off the PC then from another PC logged into the router and issued the WOL command using the LAN adapter’s MAC address but nothing happened.

    The PC is on a wired network but it is not attached directly to the router, it is attached to a Linksys EZXS88W switch which is then attached to the router.

    Can anyone suggest how I might get this to work?

    Just to be clear, do you issue the WOL command from the menu of tomato or from some other location (or even via command line via the Etherwake command)?

    From the menu of Tomato, I don't know how to do it any other way.

    That did it, thank you very much. I had been playing around with this for about two years and now it works. I setup another PC on the same next work the same way and it too works.
    Thank you very much.
