NUC6I5SYK WoWLAN (wake on wifi) config problems

Jump to solution

Hello,

does someone have experience with configuring his NUC with WoWLAN, wake on wifi? I tried so many different things, like BIOS settings, registry hacks, driver config and disabling fastboot.

Long story short: Nothing works.

The only thing I get working is, to start the NUC via WoWLAN from S3 (hibernate), but not from S5 (power off). I heard that this should be possible. I think the blocking point is, that the wifi connection in S5 breaks down. I can perfectly see that in the web interface of my Fritz.box. On S3, the device is shown, on S5, it's not.

I know, I know... no, power, no wifi, but it SHOULD work from what I read... just how?

I'm very thankful for every hint!

kind regards,

Mehrsau

PS: I'm using Win10 pro, if that's important at all.

Thank you for bringing this to my attention.

 

I have checked specifications for your current Intel® NUC.

 

I do not see wake up from Wi-Fi support. This would be for LAN only.

 

Please check LAN and Wi-Fi specifications attachment

I do not believe that the M.2 interfaces (one of which is used for the AC-8260 card) can be powered while in S5. If this is at all possible, the only way (that I can think of) would be using a USB-based wireless solution (the NUC's USB interfaces can be configured to stay powered in S5).

Hope this helps,

Thanks a lot to both of you!

I'm really surprised of your profound input. Didn't expect that, to be honest.

Sad thing, it will not work after all, but that's all right.

Thanks again!

No problem. Wake-on-Wireless has been a problem child for years. As a matter of fact, wireless support was dropped from the original USB 3.0 industry specification because, at the time, they couldn't resolve all the (wake-related) problems...

Hey. How did you manage to make it work in S3?

I have wake on lan enabled for the wifi device in device manager, yet it is does not power on the device.

I confirmed WOL to be working properly through LAN - router is asus ac68u
