I am just writing to express interest in this topic.

Can the Inspiron 1720 wake on lan?

If so, does it need to be a wired ethernet connection? Or can it be woken on a wireless connection?

Under power management in the BIOS (Ver. A09), it appears that you can set it for a usb device to wake the computer, but I don't see an explicit setting for WOL.

 

Did you end up having success Josh12345?

 

TL;DR Can I wake the 1720 on lan? If so, what conditions must be met?
