Wake on Lan for a Dell Precision R5400



Wake on lan doesn't  works for me on a Dell Precision R5400.


Os: Windows7 64 bit

BIOS, Updated to version A07, settings:

Integrated NIC1 On

Low Power Mode: Off

Remote Wake Up: On

Suspend Mode: S3

Nic is Broadcom 5721C1 NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet PCI-E, 57XX, Gigabit Integrated Controller, BCM95722 PCI-E NIC Driver, dated Mon Oct 12 11:19:38 CDT 2009 , from Dell's site


Windows7 settings for the card:

[ X ] Allow computer to turn off this device to save power

[ X ] Allow this device to wake the computer

[     ] Only allow a magic packet to wake the computer

At the Advanced tab: Wake on lan capabilities: Both .


Magic packets arrive to the computer (tested).



What is missing?
