ABIT AN7 Motherboard
Vitaly Evseenko, ve matcode. I’ve no idea what happened 1st time sound etc. Most modern motherboards have integrated ethernet ports that support Wake-on-LAN.
I thought installing the chipset driver would do the onboard LAN, but it didn’t. Have something to contribute to this discussion? Any help greatly appreciated.
I didn’t realise till I went to install that it was exactly the same as what I had used originally. Well I decided to just get a generic chipset driver for an nForce2 mobo. I gave it a go anyway, and viola, LAN working. It’s on the way. If they are, it’s likely you can use Wake-on-LAN. This arrangement works out fine most of the time.
Thanks for your help caperjack: 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 My home theater PC is set to automatically enter a low-power sleep mode after 25 minutes of inactivity.
You had to frantically bash all the controller buttons to wake your character up, which he did only reluctantly. I can’t find a stand-alone LAN driver anywhere on the interweb, can someone suggest how I can find the correct one?
I’m going to ask Abit, but thought perhaps you guys could tell me what I’m doing wrong. In case you missed it the board is an old Abit AN7 socket A. Soon to be solved. I set both just to be sure.
AN7 Overclocking Review Page 1
This works well with Vista’s Media Center, which wakes the machine up when it’s scheduled to record. Unfortunately, mashing all the buttons on my keyboard didn’t seem to work. But now I can’t, because the machine is often asleep. Windoze suggests it connect to the internet and search, which is a nice thought but without a LAN driver I don’t have a ‘driver disk’ as such, just what I could find on their site. It’s a symbolic victory for lazy people everywhere.
And then I remembered the properties page for the network adapter in Device Manager: Once did, I was able to wake up the machine remotely exactly as desired: This way I can avoid the additional electricity cost of a computer turned on around the clock.
I don’t mind waking the machine manually when I want to watch television– after all, I’m in aan7 same room and I’m walking towards the couch anyway.
But a sleeping PC can be incredibly annoying when I’m sitting at my desk and I need to access that machine remotely. If you left the controller alone for a minute, your character would fall alseep.
That was true in my case, so I figured it should work. Fortunately, one already exists:
