Check the driver settings in windows, often more options are found there. It also goes off when ‘S3’ mode is selected in bios. I might add that it would appear that many others are having the same problem i.
What PSU have you got? This would mean that power is not being supplied to LAN when computer is shut down.
I’ve bought one of your adored MSI mainboards and it doesn’t do what I want it to do. The thing that I still think points to the problem is the fact that the green led on the onboard LAN NIC goes off when the computer is shut down S1 mode. The computer starts from ‘shut down’ S1 mode via a ‘magic packet’ if I send the ‘magic packet’ within a few minutes of shutting down, therefore I assume all addresses, port-forwarding, wol bios settings etc are correct BUT 2: H31m3 problem remains v31m3 the same and the led on the RJ45 socket of onboard lan still goes off when PC is shutdown.
Does anyone have any other suggestions? Home Help Search Login Register. Last year I lost interest in this problem after getting nowhere.
G31M3 V2 OnBoard LAN – WOL works Intermittantly
I’m leaning to the idea that the problem is a fault with the motherboard or on-board NIC. I’ve re-read this thread and everything I wrote initially is still the case and the problem. Incidently, in both those shut down modes the ‘num lock’ led on the keyboard is still on so I gather the PSU is still supplying 5V to the mainboard.
How old is the Windows installation? The last reply I had was from ‘Cronnin’ suggesting checking bios setting. I’m guessing that charged capacitors are allowing the restart after short power off time but are discharging and preventing activation via LAN after a period of time.
Could you be more specific with what driver settings I should be checking?
When I shut down the target remote computer I can restart within a few minutes using a ‘magic packet’ so I assume all router port forwarding and LAN settings are correct. In addition, today I’ve just flashed the MB bios and upgraded from ver. Now I’m keen again to try to get WOL working on my computer.

But, if I leave that target computer switched off for half hour or more I can no longer start it using the ‘magic packet’. Please login or register. Are motherboard drivers installed? Also check these settings:
