I gave it a go anyway, and viola, LAN working.
I don’t have a ‘driver disk’ as such, just what I could find on their site. My home theater PC is set to automatically enter a low-power sleep mode after 25 minutes of inactivity.
I’ve no idea what happened 1st time sound etc. If you left the controller alone for a minute, your character would fall alseep. Man I’m glad I’ve got another computer to get on the net with, otherwise I’d need to change the motherboard to get the Everest stuff, then change to check the adapter, then change to download the driver, then change to install the driver I set both just to be sure.
Once did, I was able to wake up the machine remotely exactly as desired: When I get home from work I’ll do just that.
Remotely Waking Up Your PC
That was true in my case, so I figured it should work. This arrangement works out fine most of the time. Have something to contribute to this discussion? In case you missed it the board is an old Abit AN7 socket A. What I na7 is a way to remotely wake a sleeping computer.
Well I decided to just get a generic chipset driver for an nForce2 mobo. Fortunately, one already exists: This works well with Vista’s Media Center, which wakes the machine up when it’s scheduled to record.
Remotely Waking Up Your PC
Unfortunately, mashing all the buttons on my keyboard didn’t seem to work. Soon to be solved. Any help greatly appreciated.
It’s on the way. But now I can’t, because the machine is often asleep. You had to frantically bash all aan7 controller buttons to wake your character up, which he did only reluctantly. This way I can avoid the additional electricity cost of a computer turned on around the clock. I’m going to ask Abit, but thought perhaps you guys could tell me what I’m doing wrong.
And then I remembered the properties page for the network adapter in Device Manager: I thought installing the chipset driver would do the onboard LAN, but it didn’t.
ABIT AN7 – motherboard – ATX – Socket A – nForce2 Ultra 400
Please be thoughtful, detailed and courteous, and adhere to our posting rules. Vitaly Evseenko, ve matcode. These utilities send a specially crafted “magic ethernet packet” to the target PC which initiates the wake-up sequence. Thanks for your help caperjack: Most modern motherboards have integrated ethernet ports that support Am7.
Here’s how to tell if yours does: It’s a symbolic victory for lazy people everywhere.
If they are, it’s likely you can use Wake-on-LAN. But a sleeping PC can be incredibly annoying when I’m sitting at my desk and I need to access that machine remotely.
