How does WOL work with newer computers? If it is enabled in bios then why doesn’t a super packet wake the machine up?

    Not sure what "newer" means but I use WOL to wake up my Homeserver running Win7 Ultimate in the basement... Specifically mc-wol 00:26:18:FB:95:B7 runs from my laptop on the kitchen table & wakes up the Homeserver every time. mc-wol is from http://www.matcode.com/wol.htm. I tried a few before finding this one. It's free, it's portable & it works! Your server computer must (1) be in StandBy, (2) WOL via your NIC must be enabled in BIOS and (3) be using hard wire NIC - not a wireless. Gary
