Windows 10: WOL from shutdown

    WOL from shutdown

    I am trying to get my computer to work with WOL from shutdown.

    Motherboard is Asus Sabertooth x77.
    In the UEFI the only settings I can find is Power on by PCIE/PCI which is enabled (says to for WOL function), then I see a option to boot from network devices which I don't know if it has anything to do with WOL but tried the 3 settings and it did not help.

    I am trying to get it to work over LAN then I want it to work over WAN.

    I should be able to WOL directly from my router (and WAN) as I can login into my Asus router remotely) The router has a option to WOL directly in the router settings.
    I also have phone WOL apps that send the packets but don't work.

    I can get it to work with sleep or hibernation but not shutdown so seems to be a motherboard setting I am missing.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    I would check the settings in Device Manager for the network controller:
    How to Enable Wake-on-LAN in Windows 10

    You need to watch the link light on the router for the computer in question - it needs to stay on when the computer is shutdown for WOL to work.
