Often times, a WOL header is present on a MOBO for connection to a PCI
NIC card, and the onboard NIC will not respond to WOL b/c it requires
that the chipset receive power at all times (from the Standby voltage
circuit) and doing so would require the chipset to have 2 different
power connections. I have not checked my a7n8x to see whether this is
the case, but this WAS true with my SIS735 chipset based mobo (ECS
k7s5a). Also, usually a "magic packet" transmission program is
required to wakeup a computer via a network connection, depends on the
NIC.

I don't know of a single wireless NIC that has WOL capabilities, i.e.
maintains the 5v connection for this to work. If you think about it, this
makes sense because the card has to be able to filter out all other radio
signals for a correct wake-up signal.

I believe the Linksys LNE100TX does.


That one wireless? I have a LNE100TX wired NIC and yes, you're right, WOL
works just fine.
