http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello everybody, I'm a complete newbie on this board, so thanks in advance for the time u may spend to help me deal with my small problems. So here we are: I m running karmic on a dell optiplex 330, with a broadcom network controller NetLink BCM5787, and wol doesn't want to work since upgrade to karmic. I have done that : Code: sudo ethtool -s eth0 wol g and added the line Code: ethtool -s eth0 wol g to /etc/rc.local file. This worked just fine on Jaunty. But since the upgrade, it hasn't been working. I tried a fresh install, but it brings the same result. I somehow think that a driver or something related to the network has changed between jaunty and karmic to explain this problem, but i don't know what i need to do to solve it. Thank u for your help, it will be greatly appreciated ! (HowTos)
