    Does NUC6i3SYH support WOL=Wake on LAN functionality (S.O. Win 7 )?


      Has some one Enabled the Wake on LAN functionality successfully for Win 7?

      According to other thread, It seems that there are some problems in Ubuntu systems.

          Hello Paqui,


          Yes, it is supported. Below you will find the steps in order to set up this configuration.


          Wake-on-LAN must be enabled in the board BIOS and then configured in the operating system.


          To enable Wake-on-LAN in the BIOS:

          1. Press F2 during boot to enter BIOS Setup.
          2. Go to the Power menu.
          3. Set Wake-on-LAN to Power On.
          4. Press F10 to save and exit the BIOS Setup.


          To configure Wake-on-LAN in Windows 8* or Windows 7*:

          1. Go to Device Manager.
          2. Expand the Network Adapters section.
          3. Right-click the adapter in use and click Properties.
          4. Click Advanced tab.
          5. Select Wake on Magic Packet from the Property list.
          6. Expand the Value section and select Enabled.
          7. Click Power Management tab.
          8. Select the check box for Allow this device to wake the computer.
          9. Click OK.


          Regarding Ubuntu, this operating system has not been officially validated to work with this Intel® NUC Kit; therefore, we do not have documentation of the possible scenarios with Ubuntu. We do know that a lot of NUC owners are using it successfully on many different Linux distros, and maybe you can try using their Forum support; Ubuntu Forums.


          Please let me know if it helps.
