    Wake on lan after power of not working (intel I218-V)

    Dear all
    I'm trying to get wake on lan working on my new computer after a shutdown from windows. I'm using the following hardware/software:
    Asrock X99 Extreme 4 with onboard Intel I218-V --> connected trough wired lan
    Windows 10 EDU 64 bit
    The wake on lan works when I put the system in hibernation or sleep. However on shutdown it doesn't work. On shutdown the lights on the ethernet connector of the motherboard are off. If I boot the system to the BIOS and shut down from there the lights are still on and the wake on lan works. So it seems like windows 10 is disabling the network card on shutdown.
    I tried changing the following settings:
    - in BIOS: turned on wake-on-Lan. and turned off Deep Sleep
    - in windows in the divice manager at the power management tab of the I218-V I made sure to select: "wake on magic packet", "wake on pattern match", "wake on magic Packet from power off State".
    - Disabled "fast start-up" from windows 10 as I found some people had problems with that combination.
    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to make sure windows 10 does not disable the network card on shutdown so that wake on lan still works?

    I am seeing the same thing on my Asus X99A II with the Intel I218-V but have not figured out the right combo of settings either, though I think M$ update has changed the Driver recently as it doesn't have the "fancy" properties Tab I had when I built the system now, and I think Allow the Computer to turn this device Off to save Power was checked again ( pretty sure I disabled it while TSing previously.)

    currently on Driver from M$ dated 4/5/2016


    edit : reinstalled Intel Driver that came with my MB and it is version .... 8/13/2015 and I have all the Fancy dialog boxes (DBX) back in the Properties Driver Tab again ...... I'll see if this makes a difference.

    I'm using the latest intel drivers (version according to the driver tab). On other systems there normally is in the Advanced tab of de device some enable wake on lan or enable PME. However this is not present in my version.

    When i looked on Intel today I found a driver which says it is version 21.0 , so I am guessing the don't use the 12.15. part on going back to the original driver on the MB CD, I do seem to have more options available like wake from power off and a few others , wake with magic packet was disabled though by default. I suspect the intel Driver may have options the WU M$ Intel WHQL doesn't have. Certainly it has way more information and "helpful "notes" in each section.

    it looks like you are on version 23.1 as Intel would call it , i'll have to look more at intel for that one....

    I didn't find Driver 23.1 on Intel but in a readme for v21.0 I found theses note on Wake on Lan Known Issues.

    *** Edit.....Removed notes as they didnt apply............ fix is further in thread on page 2

    in bios -> "PCI devices power on" -> is it "enabled" ? if not, enable it

    is the LAN lights working when you shut down the computer?

    Dear batlhilz

    That specific setting was disabled in the BIOS. After enabling it works perfect.
    Thank you very much!
    @Kbird. Maybe you intel LAN card is also disabled by a comparable BIOS setting?

    No unfortunately , I had already checked that , and tried with ErP on and Off, but I am wondering if the new Bios on my MB last week broke the WOL in the Bios as I noticed last night after looking under the desk in the dark that the Link light is no longer showing when the Computer is off, which pretty much explain why it won't wake anymore.

    Weirdly I was just told on the Asus Forum by a Mod , that Windows 10 does not support WOL from S5 ie OFF only from S3 (sleep) or S4 (Hybrid Sleep) which is weird cos I could of sworn it WAS working .....


    *** THIS IS FALSE *** see the fix further down in the Thread....

    I installed the Latest Driver at Intel ...Version 21.. and now see on the Driver tab it is the Driver number you said ,

    Intel actually refers to the PACKAGE as version 21 (Link Speed Tab of Device Manager) not the actual Driver Version used that comes in the zip file.

    However This is still not working for me , so I suspect something in the New Asus Bios 901 has changed.
