The "ethtool" utility is used to display or change Ethernet card settings. It was not possible to enable Wake-on-LAN for network devices using the Intel PRO/1000 Linux driver which had Wake-on-LAN disabled in their EEPROM memory. With this update, the ethtool utility is able to enable Wake-on-LAN for Intel PRO/1000 network devices.
