Maybe a little bit out of topic, but I need to be able to use a wake on lan on my elastix server (when my UPS has only a minute of power left, I'm forcing a shutdown, but my server bios does not know how to start automatically when the power is back).

My bios has the wol enabled, and I'm trying to set the
ethtool -s eth0 wol g
but I have that answer:
Cannot set new wake-on-lan settings: Operation not supported not setting wol

however my card seems to support the wol
Settings for eth0:
Supported ports: [ TP ]
Supported link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full
1000baseT/Full

Current message level: 0x00000007 (7)

My card:
01:05.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82540EM Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 02)

Any ideas for a linux dumb like me to make it work?

Seems that updating the intel driver for the eth card solved my issue.

now the ethtool -s eth0 wol g is working.
