With Ubuntu 18.04. I want to configure my eth0 as wakeonlan thx to the following yaml file in/etc/netplan :

  version: 2
  renderer: networkd
      dhcp4: yes
      dhcp6: no
      addresses: []
        macaddress: xxxxxxxxxxxx
      wakeonlan: true

But doing so leads to very bad network speed (as if there were 2 protocol stacks conflicting - but I cannot provide evidence at that moment).

The other side effect is that when this yaml file is present, the icon representing the network is the following :

Whereas when there is not this yaml file, the icon is as follows :
