    Default Asrock 970 extreme 4 WOL?

    I dont see a BIOS setting to enable/disable it and when I power it down from linux I note that there is no power on the NIC so it looks like things are totally disabled. Is there any way to do WOL with this board?

    NM found the issue its a bug in Fedora. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=826652 that they don't seem to be in any hurry to address.

    The fix I adopted was to add an init script that runs on reboot to set the driver for the NIC into the proper state.

    Here is the content of the init named mywol;

    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    ### BEGIN INIT INFO
    # Required-Start: $network $local_fs $named
    # Default-Start: 3 4 5
    # Default-Stop: 0 1 2 6
    # Short-Description: Starts/stops the foo service
    # Description: Starts/stops the foo service
    ### END INIT INFO
    start() {
        ethtool -s eth0 wol g
        retval=$?
        return $retval
    }
    
    case "$1" in
        start)
            start
            $1
            ;;
        *)
            echo $"Usage: $0 {start}"
            exit 2
    esac
    exit $?
    Replace eth0 with the name of your network interface. Then;
    chkconfig --level 345 mywol on
