Brute-Force WoL

by on Mar.21, 2009, under Linux

For some time now, wake-on-LAN has not been working on my home server PC.  I had been using WoL to wake the machine via a cron job on my firewall before I got home from work, and also to power the machine on remotely if I needed to get a file or such.  I had guessed a kernel change was to blame, but several updates since have not resolved, and my search for related bugs only turned up advice that didn’t work.  So, I threw in an Intel e1000 and cabled it up (using the on-board for most purposes, as the e1000 is only PCI), and WoL “just works” with the e1000.  FWIW, the on-board is an Nvidia MCP55.  Problem solved… or at least worked around.
