how to set Intel® Centrino® Advanced-N 6235 for wake on wlan (WoWlan)

Hello Community,

I built HTPC (AsRock Z77, I5-3570K, Intel® Centrino® Advanced-N 6235) and would like to use Ipad3 as remote controler togerher with XBMC

Well, still I can not realize configuration for wake on wlan (WoWlan) using Intel 6235.

Original delivered wlan card Realtek RTL8191SE (with MBO AsRock) was able to do WoWlan, but I replaced it with Intel 6235 because of 2 dual-band.

Present I have driver in use

Please for support in this matter

How can I use 6235 for wake on wlan!?

best regards and many thanks

Enabling and Initiation

WoWLAN is initiated upon suspend under the following conditions:

  • WoWLAN is enabled in the OS level, in the adapter settings dialog.
    • Note: the magic packet checkbox is optional and will limit the wake reason to be only due to magic packet received.
  • The WiFi adapter was configured by the OS with a valid WoWLAN configuration (wake patterns and/or protocol offloads), for example by an app using WoWLAN.
  • The WiFi adapter is associated with an AP.

It is also important to notice that in your case the wireless adapter and its integration must be validated by the system/motherboard manufacturer. Intel� Wi-Fi Products; Regulatory information regarding hardware installation or upgrade
