I recently downloaded the Epic100 device driver for my 10/100-TX-M LAN
card running under Linux. The device driver (C source, uncompiled) does
not appear to have any dealings with power management (-M), unless I
just missed the referent.
When a WOL card is powered up, does it automatically ping the motherboard
to wake up, whether or not the motherboard is already hot? Or do I need
to do some diagnostics to determine wake states?
If the motherboard is cool (sleeping), do I need to wait after pinging
the WOL port for the motherboard to wake up?
