I Cannot make WOL (Wake on LAN) work with r8169 driver (Gigabyte A P35-DSP3 Motherboard under Gutsy AMD64).
Since I'am slightly game addicted I have a second partition with Windows XP and I can tell that after shutting down from XP WOL is working OK (WOL from my DD-WRT router).
After shutting down from Gutsy there is no way to wake up my PC.
I have tried many things as suggested in different forums :
- adding startup scripts to enable WOL through the "ethtool -s eth0 wol g" command (command is executed without any error and 'ethtool eth0' returns consistent WOL flags)
- removing '-i' option on the 'halt' command from the /etc/init.d/halt script
- using the Realtek official driver ( r8168 ) in place of the Gutsy provided r8169
- forcing network shutdown (ifdown -a --force) before 'halt' command in /etc/init.d/halt script
In particular it seems to me that my issue is not related to the bug #127010 (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/sysvinit/+bug/127010)
