    Intel NUC DC3217BY + Apple Thunderbold to Ethernet WOL

    michaelkrtikos

      Hello everybody,

       

      I have purchased the NUC DC 3217BY (the thunderbold edition) in which i am running Windows 7 home premium with service pack 1. Since there is no LAN on this model i purchased also an Apple Thunderbold to Ethernet adapter which i have installed with the Broadcom netxtream drivers.

       

      Although everything seems to work fine with the internet connection, i cannot make the Wake On Lan work. As soon as the NUC falls asleep, the link indicator on the router is goes dark so no power after sleep. I have all the correct settings in BIOS and on windows but still i cannot make it work.

       

      Is this a problem of the drivers? Does anyone with the same configuration solved it somehow?

       

      Also, if this is not possible to solve, can i leave the NUC on 24/7 or is it going to cause any problem to the board?

       

      It is very important to me to have a WOL for my NUC. In case it is not possible via the Thunderbolt, could you please let me know if any of the WiFi Modules support WOWLAN?

       

      I have been googling a lot but i do not have a clear answer... Thank you for your time!

       

      Thank you very much
