    Default How do I 'Wake on Lan' on z75 Pro3 mobo?

    Question stated in title. I cannot find the function in mobo settings.

    Wake from sleep works, but I want to be able to wake my pc from a powered off state.

    On my MB (different from yours): ACPI Configuration -> Ring-In Power On

    There could also be settings that affect things in your OS.

    Thanks, I enabled it but it didn't seem to work.

    I checked my Network driver and all Wake on Lan settings are enabled.

    I've never actually used WOL.
    How are you testing to see that it works?

    (Suppose that having another computer on a LAN that tries to access yours while shutdown should trigger it?)


    Possible that WOL won't even work if computer is in a shutdown state?

    I'm using the 'Wake up' function on my N66U router.

    I wouldn't be surprised if WoL doesn't work on a shutdown pc, but it would be a nice feature so thought I would just ask.

    Ring-In Power On means I have to send a special 'WoR' packet instead of WoL packet. Just need to figure out how to try that.

    Try enabling: PCI Devices Power On & see if that makes a difference?
