How to disable Power saver options using PROSetCL.exe (in the Power Mgmt Tab of Network Adapter)

Jump to solution

Hi All,

I want to disable the Power Saver Options in Power Management Tab of the Network adapter via command prompt using PROSetCL.exe.

I want to mainly uncheck the below mentioned Power Saver Options...

- Respond to ARP requests without waking system

- Respond to NS requests without waking system.

Can someone please let me know how to do this.

My actual intention is to wake a system in the network by Pinging its IP address. The OS is Win 7 Ultimate.

I am assuming that i will be able to achieve the above by enabling the WOL options and disabling the above mentioned options.

In case i am wrong in the above approach , please correct me.

Regards,

Praveen kumar Araveti

If you want to wake up on a ping (or any other directed packet) you need to enable wake on directed packet. This will only work if your device supports that capability.

I do not see any reason to disable the "Respond" settings to get wake on LAN to work, but here is how to configure those settings using PROSetCL along with examples I captured from my laptop.

To change these settings:

 

- Respond to ARP requests without waking system

 

- Respond to NS requests without waking system.

1. Find the index of the port you want to configure. Example:

 

C:\Program Files\Intel\DMIX\CL>prosetcl Adapter_Enumerate

Number of adapters currently present: 1

1) Intel(R) 82579LM Gigabit Network Connection

2. Find the names of the settings for your network port. Example:

 

C:\Program Files\Intel\DMIX\CL>prosetcl Adapter_EnumerateSettings 1

*PMARPOffload - Enabled

 

*PMNSOffload - Enabled

3. Find the valid values for the setting you want to change. Example:

C:\Program Files\Intel\DMIX\CL>prosetcl Adapter_GetSetting 1 *PMARPOffload

1) Intel(R) 82579LM Gigabit Network Connection

*PMARPOffload - Enabled

Valid Values: "Disabled"

 

"Enabled"

4. Change the value of the setting. Example:

 

C:\Program Files\Intel\DMIX\CL>prosetcl Adapter_SetSetting 1 *PMARPOffload "Disabled"

1) Intel(R) 82579LM Gigabit Network Connection

Successfully set value: 'Disabled'

You can check to see if your network port supports wake on directed packet using PROSetCL. Example:

C:\Program Files\Intel\DMIX\CL>prosetcl Adapter_GetWakeOnSettings 1

1) Intel(R) 82579LM Gigabit Network Connection

Wake On LAN Options:

Wake From Power Off - 'Enabled'

 

Wake On Directed Packet - 'Unsupported'

 

Wake On Link - 'Disabled'

 

Wake On Magic Packet - 'Enabled'

As you can see in the example from my laptop, Wake on Directed Packet is not an available option. I would need to use a magic packet to wake up my laptop.

I hope this helps.

Hi Mark,

That was very Helpful. Exactly the information i was looking for.

Even the board i wanna test shows " Wake On Directed Packet - 'Unsupported'".

Thanks a Ton.
