How to enable Wake on RDP for DH67GD running Windows 7 Pro x64?

Community Manager

There are a few posts, like this and this, which indicate that Windows 7 supports "Wake on RDP". Judging from these superficial descriptions, there's nothing to it!


Unfortunately, I can't get it to work. My NIC settings in Device Manager look nothing like those show in the 2nd post referenced above. Instead there are 4 WOL options listed on a new "Power Options" tab, all of which are enabled (see screenshot below). What else do I need to configure for this to work?

The computer in question is based on the Intel DH67GD with 82579V NIC on board, which has a hard-wired (Cat 5) network connection. WOL is enabled in BIOS. I am using RDP strictly within a LAN moderated by a Cisco/LinkSys WAG354G (EU).

P.S. I have meanwhile succeeded in getting the system to respond to magic packets when in S5 (i.e. I can wake it up using WolCmd.exe from but no other network activity wakes it. What am I missing here?
