Hello

I am experiencing some technical challenges

I have been following several guides, tips, and documentation but I cannot manage to successfully wake my computer via Wifi by sending magic packets

 

From what I have been reading the card support it

I believe my windows and power options are correctly setup 

I would love to hear your thoughts or if there is some user that successfully managed to wake the computer via Wifi using this card model

 

Regards

Raff

Hello, @Raff

 

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.  

 

I am sorry to hear what is happening with your Intel® Wi-fi 6 AX201, I will gladly assist you here. 

 

Did you make sure you have followed all the steps to enable it in Windows and BIOS? For WoL (Wake on wireless LAN) to function, your computer's BIOS and operating system need to be set up correctly.  

 

We recommend you to contact your Motherboard Manufacturer to enable the Wake on wireless LAN in BIOS. 

 

For Windows 10, follow these steps: 

 

  1. Open Device Manager by selecting the Windows button and typing, Device Manager
  2. Expand the Network Adapters section and double-click the Wireless device. 
  3. Select the Advanced tab. 
  4. Make sure Wake on Magic Packet is enabled (this is the default setting). 

 

If the PC won't Wake on wireless LAN after completing the steps detailed above, try disabling Fast Startup in Windows: 

 

  1. Type Power Options in the Search bar. 
  2. Select Choose what the power buttons do
  3. Select Change settings that are currently unavailable
  4. Uncheck Turn on fast startup in the Shutdown settings section. 
  5. Click Save changes
