Hello everybody,

I installed Ubuntu Server 19.10 on a machine and I am trying to get WOL working.

I set the BIOS correctly and the Wake-on to G for the relevant ethernet card.

Here is my "ethtool " output:

        Supported ports: [ TP ]
        Supported link modes:  10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
                                100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full
        Supported pause frame use: Symmetric Receive-only
        Supports auto-negotiation: Yes
        Supported FEC modes: Not reported
        Advertised link modes:  10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
                                100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full
        Advertised pause frame use: Symmetric Receive-only
        Advertised auto-negotiation: Yes
        Advertised FEC modes: Not reported
        Link partner advertised link modes:  10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
                                            100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full
                                            1000baseT/Half 1000baseT/Full

        Link partner advertised auto-negotiation: Yes
        Link partner advertised FEC modes: Not reported
        Speed: 1000Mb/s
        Duplex: Full
        Port: Twisted Pair
        PHYAD: 0
        Transceiver: internal
        Auto-negotiation: on
        MDI-X: Unknown
        Supports Wake-on: pumbg
        Wake-on: g
        Current message level: 0x00000033 (51)
                              drv probe ifdown ifup
        Link detected: yes
here is the relevant output of lspci:

03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 15)
I installed the r8168-dkms packaged, which I found loaded through lsmod.

I connected the machine via an ethernet cable to another one, set them on the same network (tested through ping) and the tried with both the linux Wakeonlan command and with a "Wake on Lan" windows appllication. Both failed.

Previously, I tried the same but using a windows installation. With Windows on this machine the WOL worked, therefore the BIOS is ok.

Does anyone have any idea?

Thanks in any case Smile
