I've been trying to get WOL to work for weeks on my Ubuntu server 13.04 install but it just doesn't seem to work.
I notice when I suspend the server with "sudo pm-suspend" or via the desktop gui, the NIC card turns off. I.e., there is no blinking lights on the network port. I don't know if that's the issue but in my
/var/log/syslog, I also saw that my ethernet was not one of the PCIs that had "system wakeup enabled by ACPI":

But according to "cat /proc/acpi/wakeup" my ethernet card IS supposed be to enabled:
Device S-state Status Sysfs node USB1 S3 *disabled RP01 S4 *enabled pci:0000:00:1c.0 RP03 S4 *enabled pci:0000:00:1c.2 GLAN S4 *disabled EHC1 S4 *enabled pci:0000:00:1d.0 EHC2 S4 *enabled pci:0000:00:1a.0 XHC S4 *enabled pci:0000:00:14.0 HDEF S4 *enabled pci:0000:00:1b.0 PEG0 S4 *disabled PEGP S4 *disabled
From my "lspci -tv", you can see that "pci:0000:00:1c.2" is the Atheros ethernet card:
+-14.0 Intel Corporation Lynx Point USB xHCI Host Controller +-16.0 Intel Corporation Lynx Point MEI Controller #1 +-1a.0 Intel Corporation Lynx Point USB Enhanced Host Controller #2 +-1b.0 Intel Corporation Lynx Point High Definition Audio Controller +-1c.0--- +-1c.2-----00.0 Qualcomm Atheros QCA8171 Gigabit Ethernet +-1d.0 Intel Corporation Lynx Point USB Enhanced Host Controller #1 +-1f.0 Intel Corporation Lynx Point LPC Controller
I also set
/sys/class/net/p2p1/device/power/wakeup to 'enabled'. As well as ran
sudo ethtool -s p2p1 wol g and inserted that into my
I have enabled the equivalent wake on LAN/PCI in my ASRock Bios.
ethtool p2p1 (p2p1 is my Qualcomm Atheros QCA8171 Gigabit Ethernet name) shows this:
Supports Wake-on: pg Wake-on: g
So what do I do?? I followed every guide and suggestion I found. Do you think it's a driver issue? Is there a way to update the Atheros driver? Has anyone been able to wake on lan if the NIC card has no blinking lights? With the system up, I used wireshark and was able to detect the WOL packets sent from my local dd-wrt via the command
/usr/sbin/wol -i 192.168.1.254 -v bc:5f:f4:be:38:e4 -p 9. I also was able to receive the packets from a windows machine with a WOL generator. Anyone has any suggestions as I'm just out of ideas.... Thanks in advance for reading.
lspci -vv is as such if that helps anyone:
