Dear Sirs,

I am writing to you regarding the above mentionned MB (and most probably on
all nForce4 mb's) Wake on lan capabilities.

At page :
you mention "The on-board ethernet device doesn't seem to support WOL (also
not mentioned in the manual)"

Please not that i am using this capability with this MB es follows (This is
a known 'bug' from Nvidia nforce4 chipsets):
If your ethernet's MAC address is *00:AB:34:FE:67:CD for exemple, you will
need to type the address the other way round to wake your computer using
wol. You will have to type "wakeonlan CD:67:FE:34:AB:00″ in a terminal. It
of course also works through the internet.
