I’m going to ask Abit, but thought perhaps you guys could tell me what I’m doing wrong. I gave it a go anyway, and viola, LAN working. Vitaly Evseenko, ve matcode. I thought installing the chipset driver would do the onboard LAN, but it didn’t. I’ve no idea what happened 1st time sound etc. But a sleeping PC can be incredibly annoying when I’m sitting at my desk and I need to access that machine remotely. These utilities send a specially crafted “magic ethernet packet” to the target PC which initiates the wake-up sequence.

Remotely Waking Up Your PC
This works well with Vista’s Media Center, which wakes the machine up when it’s scheduled to record. I set both just to be sure. When I get home from work I’ll do just that.

Here’s how to tell if yours does: If you left the controller alone for a minute, your character would fall alseep. This arrangement works out fine most of the time. This way I can avoid the additional electricity cost of a computer turned on around the clock.

Please be thoughtful, detailed and courteous, and adhere to our posting rules. I didn’t realise till I went to install that it was exactly the same as what I had used originally.
That was true in my case, so I figured it should work. And then I remembered the properties page for the network adapter in Device Manager: Soon to be solved. In case you missed it the board is an old Abit AN7 lxn A.
Remotely Waking Up Your PC
Windoze suggests it connect to the internet and search, which is a nice thought but without a LAN driver 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.
It’s on the way. Well I decided to just get a generic chipset driver for an nForce2 mobo. What Lxn need is a way to remotely wake a sleeping computer. Most modern motherboards have integrated ethernet ports that support Wake-on-LAN. 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 Once did, I was able to wake up the machine remotely exactly as desired: My home theater PC is set to automatically enter a low-power sleep mode after 25 minutes of inactivity.
Thanks for your help caperjack: Fortunately, one already exists: Unfortunately, mashing all the buttons on my a7 didn’t seem to work.
I don’t have a a7 disk’ as such, just what I could find on their site.
ABIT AN7 – motherboard – ATX – Socket A – nForce2 Ultra 400
A7n don’t mind waking the machine manually when I want to watch television– after all, I’m in the same room and I’m walking towards the couch anyway. It’s a symbolic victory for lazy people everywhere. I can’t find a stand-alone LAN driver anywhere on the interweb, can someone suggest how I can find the correct one?
Any help greatly appreciated. These utilities send llan specially crafted “magic ethernet packet” to the target PC which initiates the wake-up sequence. I gave it a go anyway, and viola, LAN working. You had to frantically bash all the controller buttons to wake your character up, which he did only reluctantly. I’ve no idea what happened 1st time sound etc.
