    Hello all, I'm trying to get wake on lan to work with a new PC I have. It is an HP D220 MT. The motherboard has an onboard broadcom NIC. I've downloaded 3 different programs to send the "Magic packet" to wake the computer but no luck so far.

    There is a WOL header on the motherboard for me to plug a cable into but since the NIC is onboard I didn't think I'd have to do this, especially since when the computer is powered off the NIC still shows link lights, which tells me the NIC has power, which is supposedly the only reason you normally need to run that cable from the WOL header to a NIC.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Look for a jumper on the board, or a setting in the bios... I searched google for references, but all I can find is that it supports WOL and not how to enable it.
