Slav replied to jnus's topic in XPEnology General discussionHello Derek, yes, I got it running on DSM4.2. Since this is not a N40L specific topic, I created a new general thread for this topic: http://xpenology.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=665 I hope this can help you.
Hello, since WOL has not worked for me out-of-the box, I decided to create this thread where we can share experience on this topic. For some reason activating WOL over the GUI (Control Panel|Hardware) fails and does not have any effect. If WOL is supported by your HW configuration this is how you should get it running (DSM4.2): Prerequisite: • Find out the real MAC address of your Ethernet adapter (not the faked one by xpenology!) e.g. by booting linux/win form liveCD • Enable WOL options corresponding to your HW in BIOS 1. Activate the WOL setting on your Ethernet adapter: a. Enable SSH service (Control Panel|Terminal) and login (e.g. via putty) as root with admin password b. Run following command: “ethtool -s eth0 wol g” (assumed eth0 is your Ethernet adapter) 2. Power off your system as usual 3. Now wake-up your system by sending a WOL magic packet using the REAL MAC address of your Ethernet adapter. There are many tools over internet which can do this; such a functionality is integrated in some router’s FW (e.g. dd-wrt) Your system should boot up normally -this worked for me on two different systems. Now I am searching for a good way how to persist this setting in synology. As a work-around you can set up a task (executing the above command) with DSM 4.2’s integrated Task Scheduler or via the 3rd party “Cronjob Editor” which is periodically executed once the system has booted. Have fun!
