Wake on Lan (WOL) does not work with Marvell 88E8001 Gigabit Ethernet Controller (skge)
Last modified: 2009-06-22 00:23:59 EDT
Description of problem:
I would like to use Wake On Lan with my desktop to decrease wasted up time. Enabling and shutting down from Windows, WOL works with magic packet (from my CentOS box).
Using setool in Fedora, to enabled WOL with magic packet, and WOL fails consistently.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
100% on shutdown from Fedora/Linux
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run command as root: ethtool -s eth0 wol g
2. Shutdown machine
3. Send magic packet
No response from target NIC even if it is visibly active on attached network switch
Machine turns on successfully

There have been no responses to this issue. I have since had to buy a new network card to get reliable performance on Linux with gigabit. But I still have the same motherboard. Is there anything I can do to help resolve this issue?
Is wake-on-lan enabled in your BIOS settings for that network device?
Yes it is. It works 100% if enabled from Windows. It does not when attempted from Fedora.
See bug #477186 for more discussion about this issue. You may be seeing the acpi problem.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
The solution given in bug #477186 solves my problem. However I still can't continue using this network port on my machine as it's gigabit support seems very flaky.
