Re: Linkstation Wake on Lan (WOL)
The Linkstation has an ADMtek AN983 alright which probably could
wake on LAN. However when the Linkstation is sleeping or shutdown
it kills the ethernet link. As such it would be impossible for the
magic packet to get to the ethernet controller. I know when my PC
is in standby it can use WOL but the Ethernet link is still up and
shows packet traffic.
I would suggest either it was not implimented or not enabled.
There are a lot of undocumented things in the firmware using the
ATMEL processor we don't know about yet. Perhaps its still there
