Switch to Windows. The wake on lan just works without needing any messing around.
Why WOL should have any interaction with the OS escapes me since it operates when the computer is powered off and therefore no OS is running. Perhaps the Linux NIC drivers disable WOL in some way that survives a power cycle.

Right, you'll have to enable it (for some reason) via ethtool. Search the forums and/or the wiki for detailed instructions.

Given it's activated in BIOS and you're waking from the same network, it should work. No idea why it should fail.

well I thought it was enabled. my output shows below
xbmc@xbmc-desktop:~$ ethtool eth0
Settings for eth0:
Cannot get device settings: Operation not permitted
Cannot get wake-on-lan settings: Operation not permitted
Cannot get link status: Operation not permitted
No data available
have gone and enabled it as per below.

So your output:
Is showing your NIC supports it and currently set for WOL via magic packet. Not sure why it wouldn't be working. Maybe hit up the Ubuntu forums.

Do you have port 7 forwarded in your router?
If not then that is probably why it is not working.
- rflores2323 - 2010-06-03 00:46
Yes i did forward that port
