connected to a switch or hub, connect it and shut the server down.
7. Shut the system off. The connection LED on the NIC and switch or hub will
remain on indicating the NIC is monitoring the network for wake up packets
directed to its MAC address.
8. Send a wake up signal to the MAC address of the WOL enabled NIC, and the
system will boot.
Note: If the system boot is interrupted before the OS and the NIC driver are loaded, the
system will not be able to perform WOL again until the system is rebooted manually and
the OS and driver are allowed to load and reset the NIC’s WOL registers.
