    Enabling WOL From Windows

    We have a nearly 230 Brand New Stone Computers, they all have realtek RTL8168/8111 Gigabit ethernet Nics. You can enable WOL from device manager, by opening up properties of the nic, going to advanced and select wake on lan after shutdown and selecting enable. but to be honest i would rather not do that for 230 machines! so was wondering if anybody knew what registry entries it might alter to enable it, so i could run a script at startup that would enable wol for all the machines.

    Any Ideas

    The important settings are

    * In the BIOS of each machine
    * Possibly under the power management tabs in the properties of the NIC in device manager ( I think - could do with confirmation of this )

    Depicus

    If your motherboard manufacturer has a utility you may be able to do it remotely but not sure on this

    Use reg shot, to find the key.

    But as MacShinobi has already said you'll also need it enabled in the bios. Although a lot of machines come with it enabled now.

    Yeah i have managed to find the registry key i think!, just got to test that it is working! i found where in windows i could do it, advanced tab of the nic properties, didnt think about using reg shot to see what changes, but o well, see if what i have works!

    Thanks
