Hello,

Is Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 supports wake on wireless LAN from power off (S5) state? WoWLAN from sleep (S3) state works fine, but I can't wake my copmuter from power off state.

Hello joe,

In order to WOL from Powered Off (or S5 state), the NIC drivers must support WOL from powered off and this option must be enabled in the driver control panel. The PC, after being shutdown initially, provided the motherboard does not lose power, will resume upon receiving a WOL packet provided the BIOS supports this and the option is enabled.

I checked the driver (17.0.0) settings and there is no option like "Wake on Magic Packet from power off state".

Is there any chance to add this option to next version driver?

We are checking if this is supported.

I have just received the confirmation that only S3 is supported (as long as the system manufacturer has implemented this feature in their system).
