    NIC Settings

    We have a large number of RM ones and they all have the Intel 82567 network cards. By default the NIC is set with PME as disabled so we are unable to use WOL.

    I know how to go into device manager and change this so that PME is enabled but I don't want to have to do this for all of them, also if the computer is ever rebuilt the setting goes back to default.

    Does anyone know if I can change the default to be enabled?
    Or where in the reg this is set?

    Thanks

    Wouldn't that be a bios setting?

    There is a setting in the BIOS to enable or disable WOL but this is enabled by default.

    It's the setting on the NIC driver that is causing the issue

    Yes, but the NIC driver won't initialise until Windows has loaded. I'd definatly plump for a bigger dig around the BIOS.

    Or perhaps look for a motherboard jumper, but that's rather old school, before the BIOS option was common.

    Although the drivers are not loaded until windows loads, some of the advanced settings actually toggle values in the NICs NVRAM especially WOL settings, why would they even bother to put these options in the windows driver settings if they are not going to be used by the NIC?

    It works on most of the Realtek, Broadcom and Intel systems I have tried.

    I found where the setting is kept in the reg: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0007]

    I made a custom reg change and have applied it to a test workstation which worked. So I am going to apply it to the others and see how it goes
