    Hi all,
    How can i enable WOL on Dell Power Edge 2900 III Tower with 2 Broadcom BCM5708C NetXtreme II GigE
    I’ve seen nothing in OpenManage or BIOS to “enable” it.
    or any work around to get same functionality
    I’ve consulted the documentation several times with no luck till now

    any ideas would be a great assist

    Thanks in advance

    I found a solution IPMI is a good choice
    ipmitool.exe -I lan -U user -P password -H ipaddr power on

    or

    ipmitool.exe -I lan -U user -P password -H ipaddr chassis power on

    IPMITool for winodws

    IPMI seems to be working whenever the system is on, but I can’t connect when the system is off.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Try looking at advanced properties of the NICs. On some Dell workstations, WOL won’t work unless you choose ‘Enabled’ for the setting ‘Enable PME’. On the Properties pane for a NIC, click on the ‘Configure…’ button near the top. On the next pane, look for the setting name I gave you and set it to ‘Enabled’. Also, check the settings on the ‘Power Management’ tab, and make sure all the tick boxes associated with turning the NIC off to save power are cleared.
