Getting Wake On Lan To Work


I can't get wake on lan to work on either of two different windows 7 computers. In both cases, the bios supports wol, and i've set it to do so. I've configured both network adapters to allow computer to turn off hardware to save power/allow wake on lan/only wake up based on magic packet (setting the "allow computer to turn off hardware to save power" is required to let the other two options be set).
I've tried several different wol clients without success. I've tried turning off the windows firewall on the machine i'm using to generate the magic packets. That has no effect, either. What's the trick to getting wol to work under windows 7?

Monitor Wont Wake Up

I installed windows 7 a week ago and my computer would go to sleep properly (ie: one click of the power button and everything was up and running on the desktop). In the last few days however, my monitor will not wake up. Just stays off and the status light is blinking like it is not communicating with my pc. The only way to get it running is by manually powering down on the pc tower. Not sure if i changed a setting but have checked power settings and they seem to be what they were when everything was fine.

Cannot Disable Keyboard Wake From Sleep

I have an asus n80vn notebook. I want to be able to wake up my notebook only by pressing the power button or the sleep button. I do not want any other keyboard key to wake my computer from sleep. Currently, pressing any key on the keyboard will wake my computer from sleep.

Here's what i've already tried:

1. Go to device manager -> keyboards -> properties -> power management -> uncheck "allow this device to wake the computer" why it doesn't work : there is no power management tab in my keyboard driver's properties window. I currently have four entries under "keyboards in the device manager:

Keyboard device filter
Microsoft ehome mcir 109 keyboard
Microsoft ehome mcir keyboard
Microsoft ehome remote control keyboard keys
There is no power management tab in any of these!

2. Go into bios, disable "wake on keyboard" why it doesn't work: there is no "wake on keyboard" option, nor anything similar, in my bios.

3. Open a command window, use the "powercfg -devicedisablewake" command to disable waking from the keyboard. Why it doesn't work: "powercfg -devicequery wake_armed" does not report any devices currently set up to wake my computer from sleep. Furthermore, "powercfg -devicequery wake_programmable" only reports that my network card and my usb mouse are capable of being set to wake my computer from sleep (both are currently set not to wake the computer); it makes no mention of the keyboard.

I'm resigned to the idea that i will need to edit my registry, replace my keyboard drivers, or something equally intensive to prevent my keyboard from waking my computer, but i definitely want to do so. If it matters, i have the computer set only to go into s3 sleep, and have disabled hibernation. Any ideas?

Sata Drive Doesn't Wake From Sleep

Have a clean install, firmware and all drivers are up to date. Windows 7 enterprise, x64
2 hard drives are installed in the system - 120 gb intel ssd with os install and 2tb wd caviar green which is used as a misc. File storage drive-system works fine until pc goes into sleep mode. If the pc wakes from sleep the 2tb drive is not accessible and does not appear under my computer found an article referencing a hotfix: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/977178/, however i can't figure out what to download. The following are the files available as a download in the hotfix request page:

Windows 7/windowsserver 2008 r2   all (global)  x86   sp1fix299433 windows 7/windowsserver 2008 r2all (global)x64sp1fix306215 windows 7/windowsserver 2008 r2all (global)x64sp1fix299433 windows 7/windowsserver 2008 r2all (global)ia64sp1fix299433 windows 7/windowsserver 2008 r2all (global)ia64sp1fix306215  

Then there is a reference to manifest files (. Manifest) and the mum files (. Mum), as well as additional files for all supported x86-based versions of windows 7 what exactly do i need to download and install?

Lan Or Internet Setup Issues

I recently had to reinstall my os. I now have the basic xp professional with no sps. My problem is this: internet explorer will connect only if i power cycle my modem and even then it won't always do it. Even when it does it will only stay connected for 10-30 seconds then i'll lose connection. When that happens, my isp can still see my modem so i know the problem is between my computer and my modem. The only firewall i have is whatever the defaults are on xp professional. I am using a usb cable between the modem and computer because it won't pick up the modem through ethernet.

I know it is physically set up right unless it matters which usb you plug it into(it's currently plugged into the one right next to the ethernet port, i'm guessing that it has something to do with how my computer is communicating with my modem. Also, "obtain ip/dns automatically" are both selected. Basically, everything is at default.

Setting Lan / Wlan Priorities

I'm running w7-64 up-graded from vista on an hp hdx16-1200 connected through an hp dock to a netgear wireless router (cable connected from router to dock). If i have a lan connected and wifi enabled, the pc selects the slower wifi connection. Backwards to what i'd expect/want. When i turn wifi off, it selects the lan. Until i installed w7, the appropriate priority was set. Lan/wlan switching is not available in my bios. Hp is telling me that there was a setting in vista that ms eliminated in w7 and they have no recommendation for me other than turning wifi on and off.

Driver Problems - Lan Wireless Atheros

My wireless driver keeps disappearing. I have asked here once and got the reply to change my power management settings. I have done that and no luck. I lose the driver when i am not on the internet for a while. It totally disappears and i get a usb device not recognized and code 43. I have downloaded the driver from hp to my desktop and reinstall. It then asks if i want to upgrade and i answer yes and it tries but says it can't. After restarting several times, the new driver is finally recognized. I cannot work and need to know what to do. If no solution, can you tell me how i uninstall and reinstall vista without losing more.

Command Prompt Does Not Display Lan Settings

For a college assignment i have to go to the command prompt and type in 'ipconfig/all'. From there i should be able to see the host name, mac address, default gateway, subnet mask, etc, however. This information does not show. Its either all zeros (in the case of the address)  or its just not there at all. I can go into the network connections and view these details there. But they will not show in the command prompt. I spent 40 minutes on the phone with geeksquad just for the guy to tell me "i dont know what to tell you". Does anyone have any ideas?  This is rather troublesome considering a lot of my work has to consist of accurate screen shots of the command prompt. Thanks in advance!

Connect Laptop To Wifi And Lan Simultaneously

Win 7 laptop connects to either internet via wifi or network drive via lan but not both simultaneously. Trying to map a network drive from a win 7 laptop and browse the internet at the same time but can't. Fter switching from verizon dsl to fios at the office. Can no longer access the network drive through my ethernet lan while using the internet. I can do either one or the other but not both at the same time. If i toggle between the ipv4 or ipv6 settings on the pci controller for the lan, i can map the network drive and then lose the connection to the internet.

Here's what i mean: properties of the pci-e fast etnernet ctrlripv4=enabled + ipv6=disbaled = mapped network drive - internet connection ipv6=enabled + ipv4=disabled = internet connection - mapped network drive. Any ideas on how i can have both a mapped network drive and access to internet would be appreciated.

Internet Lan Disconnects Multiple Times

I updated to windows 7 on a 64bit desktop and a 32bit laptop. The laptop is wireless to my linksys router with no issues. My hp printer is wireless and has no problem either. The desktop is hardwired to the router and will disconnect from the lan and the internet multiple times a day. The troubleshooter will say the default gateway is unavailable and it resets the network adapter. The connection will work for awhile again and then the cycle starts over. Never had a problem with vista, it has been since the windows 7 upgrade that i have had problems. I have checked my network adapter drivers and they are up to date.

Wireless And Lan Network Adapter Icon Disappeared

I have an acer aspire 8920g running windows 7 ultimate having updated frm windows vista 32-bit. My problem is that for some reason my network adapters, both wireless and the lan ports don't show up in the area they used to, and also both of the drivers i had in my network adapter section in the device manger had a yellow question mark over them which means the device is not working properly because windows cant load the required driver.

This meant i couldn't load the internet, through using another pc i managed to reinstall and update one of my devices/drivers (intel wireless wifi link 4695agn) but my other one (atheros ar8121/ar8113/ar8114 pci-e ethernet controller) hasn't stopped having this error (code 31 error) even though ive downloaded the latest drivers from the atheros website which means i still cannot use my lan ports. Does anyone have any idea what may have happened?

Usb, Lan, Ps2 Devices Fail At Startup

To put this very briefly, at the bios screen, they all work fine. Lan registers, keyboard and mouse are powered and functioning. However, upon reaching the boot screen with the "starting windows" title, the mouse and keyboard power down and do not react at all despite replugging. Tried with alternate ps2 keyboard and mouse. Lan also stops functioning. Any help on this topic would be greatly appreciated. P. S. I'm going to try last known good configuration, but i doubt it would work edit: oh and i'm on 64-bit ultimate. Edit 2: yep. Didn't work. Also, safe mode produces identical results (everything fails to function)

Using Several Lan Cards On One Computer To Share Internet Connection

I'm aware that there are many threads and questions already posted about internet connection sharing but i find my problem very specific. I have one computer running on windows 7 and it has 3 lan cards:

1) internet connection
2) connection with 2nd computer
3) connection with 3rd computer (via wifi, ad-hoc)

The idea is simple - i want to share the internet connection with 2nd and 3rd computer. I belive i understand idea of ics but there is one thing bothering me - when enabling ics i have to specify the interface that i want to share internet connection with. When i set it to connection [2] there is no problem with internet connection on the 2nd computer but still there is no internet on the 3rd one and vice-versa. The whole configuration was running fine on xp, but as far as i remember there was no need to specify the 'share' interface so the [1] connection was shared with all others. Is it possible to set up such configuration on windows 7 without using any additional switch or router devices?

Lan Ethernet Adapters Install Error - Parameters Are Incorrect

Lan ethernet adapters give install error "parameters are incorrect". Windows 7 recognizes adapters but will not load drivers. At wits end. Windows 7 recognizes on board lan adapter "realtek" drivers. Assigns driver, however won't load driver states install error parameters are incorrect. On board lan adapter actually worked for two weeks then crashed. Bought a pci lan adapter, looked it up on windows compatibility website. All good.

Turned off onboard lan in bios. Installed, windows 7 like before recognized driver however won't load driver states like before install error parameters are incorrect. Using the troubleshooter, states does not see any networking equipment. Stated wired adapter may have problems. Well no doo doo! Have tried multiple drivers i downloaded nothing seems to work. I have no idea what parameters are incorrect means or how to proceed at this point.

Edimax Ethernet Card 10/100/1000 Lan Card Problem

I have windows seven (new to it) there was a problem with my onboard ethernet controller (it seems that 7 does not support it though it's installed) so i bought a new edimax ethernet card 10/100/1000 with realtek 1869 chipset. This card should be fully supported by win 7 (since its written on it and has a special driver to win 7).

I installed the card and everything went well, after wakening my pc from sleep mod it took him a long time to recognize the ethernet cable and when it did i had no internet access, restarted the computer and then again after restarting the same problem recognized the cable but no internet access, tried unplug and plug the cable, this time it helped i got the internet back.

Every time i shutdown the pc or it was in a sleep mod i have the same problem with the no internet access thing. What shall i do?

Can't Share Internet To Lan From Huawei 3g Internet Adaptor

I am in severe need of some help because i am about to go crazy trying to figure this out. I recently upgraded my mom's pc to windows 7 and i'm having trouble getting her network back in order. She has a huawei mobile broadband adaptor (3g), model ec168, that i'm trying to use to supply internet to her laptop and xbox360 via her router. I had it working for the last year when windows xp was still on her pc, but since installing windows 7, i can't get it to work. I'm using the same settings as i was before but i get nothing.
Here are the settings that used to work:

1. I enabled internet connection sharing on her 3g adaptor and shared it to the lan adaptor.

2. I set the lan's ip address to "192. 168. 0. 1"/subnet mask was the usual "255. 255. 255. 0" and the default gateway/dns server fields were left blank (since the pc was serving as the gateway and the dns sever).

3. I turned off dhcp on the router and set the router's ip to "192. 168. 0. 10"

4. I left the xbox360 and laptop set to "automatic"

With these settings it worked like a champ on xp, but i get nothing on windows 7. Also, everytime i turn ics "on" through the 3g adaptor, it says that it has assigned the ip address of "192. 168. 137. 1" to the lan. Not sure why but it does.

Cannot Get Second Monitor To Work

I am connecting a second monitor to my sony vaio-vgn-sz650n-by vga. Before upgrading from vista to 7, it was working just fine. After upgrading, i plug it in, screen blinks, but no display on second monitor. It is a dell g2210 by the way. I tried restarting my computer with monitor connected, without it connected, and went into the display settings where you can change resolution, etc. On the different monitors, and nothing there. Tried to "detect" monitor, still nothing. Tried updating the driver, nothing(maybe wrong driver?). I would love to get this problem solved as school is starting and i need to use my computer a lot, and really like having dual monitors.

Cant Get Microphone To Work

As the title says, my computer does not recognize when i plug a microphone in. I am using a pair of headphones with a microphone attached to it. I have tried 2 different sets so i know the actual mic works.

Under control panel -> hardware and sound -> manage audio devices, recording tab, it says "no audio devices are installed" i have tried using 2 different ports and it still doesn't work.

I am running windows 7 home ultimate. Can anyone shed some light on what i can do?

Edit: i recently installed to windows 7 from vista, could it be that some sort of audio driver didnt get installed or xfered over correctly? How would i figure this out?
