    How to get WoWLAN to work on Windows?


    I could've posted this on SevenForums as well : How to get WoWLAN to work on Windows? Which WakeOnWiFi I made searches and tried different settings but couldn't get it to work.. I have two laptops to try it on, an "old" one and a brand new one. Let me know, thanks :)

    No i didn't. Well it's kind of not easy to understand.. But so far it says it IS possible since Windows 7. So why not working for me? I disabled the powersaver option in the wifi card settings, enabled WOL, did that on my router as well.. Then i just went to a known WAN website, input IP & MAC and push WAKE button.. But no, didn't work :/

    ADD: i followed this Revolution Wi-Fi: Wake on Wireless LAN and my settings here are accurate (intel card and all options available). yet not working. something must have been forgotten..
