We are looking for a Fiber, PCIe network adapter that supports Wake on LAN (WOL). We prefer 10Gb. Does Intel make such a thing? Why don't network adapters such as the X520 support Wake on LAN (WOL)?

Hello Ashaw3, Thank you for posting in Intel Ethernet Communities. The X550-T1 and X550-T2 support wake on LAN with an auxiliary connector. These would be the only 10Gbe adapters with support. Your system would have to support such a feature. See the readme under "Wake on LAN is unavailable" for more details: https://downloadmirror.intel.com/22283/eng/readme.txt We would have to check the specific reason for this, but it seems there is very little support on the adapters 10GBe and up. Let us know if you have any questions. Best regards, Daniel D Intel Customer Support Under Contract to Intel Corporation

Thank you for responding quickly Daniel.

 

The X550-T1 and -T2 use copper connections. We need a Fiber connection. Are you aware of any Fiber, PCIe network adapters? We prefer 10Gb, but 1Gb might be ok.

 

Regards,

Adlai

Hello Ashaw3, Thank you for the reply. We will check if there is any information on a 10Gbe fiber adapter supporting WOL. Will provide an update soon. Let us know if you have any other questions. Best regards, Daniel D Intel Customer Support Under Contract to Intel Corporation

Hello Ashaw3, Thank you for waiting. The X550-T1 and T2 are the only adapters that support WOL at 10G. This is because the X550 has an auxiliary connector to supply power. Standard PCIe interfaces will not supply enough power to wake the 10G adapter from standby. This is not required for 1G adapters and some 10G integrated LOM adapters.
