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
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.
