Currently we don't have any reports like yours, but I will send your feedback up so that they look in to this.
Please uninstall your current driver and install the older 17.0 one found at the following web site:
Thank you for your answer.
I also tested the driver version 17.0 some day ago, but it did not work. So I downloaded the old 15.? version for vista x64 (file PROWinx64_v15_vista.exe), and now WOL is working again.
I have the same problem.
DH57JG (latest bios)
Wake on LAN from S3 and S5 works up to on v16.8.1. All v17.x releases are no good for UEFI boot on this board (But WOL seems to work on non-UEFI boot, my earlier setup).
After checking Network Connectivity — What is new in the latest Intel� Ethernet Software release?, in 17.0, I saw
- Updated Windows* e1k driver for various Intel® 82567, 82577, and 82578 (, which is DH57JG's network adapter) Gigabit Network connections
- Updated UEFI Boot ROM images
So it did look like that the changes broke the WOL function. So I will stick with 16.8.1 for the time being.
Unfortunately, this issue was never fixed and is still present 4 years later. The DH57JG still cannot properly do Wake-On-LAN due to this driver bug.
(for years I thought it was an issue with the newer BIOS versions of the board, but the BIOS does everything correct, only the windows drivers don't)
The Windows 10 drivers don't allow for Wake-On-LAN and the only drivers that initialize the hardware correctly are the 16.8.1 drivers which are made only for Windows 7 and from 07/2011 (very old).
These drivers do however work on Windows 10. They won't install with the "normal" installer but you can install them with the device manager.
Then don't forget to change the option "Enable PME" in the Advanced Settings (Properties of 82578DC Gigabit Network in Device Manager) to ON.
And now it will work. Really sad that Intel never fixed this
Understand that the drivers available on the download page for a particular board are those that have been fully validated with that board. It is possible that there are newer releases of this driver - with problems fixed - that could be used, but they do not get posted because they have not been validated. Here is a link to where you can download the latest (v20.7.1) releases of the Gigabit LAN packages:
Give these a try and see if it fixes your problem...
Thank you for the suggestion, but I've already tried that. The latest drivers no longer support this chipset.
Just wanted to post this information (and my solution) for other people who struggle with this.
