[Z790 HERO] Wake-on-LAN (WOL) Solved

Level 7

Disable Fast Startup

  1. In the Search bar enter control panel. Select Control Panel from the list of results.
  2. When Control Panel opens, select Power Options from the menu.
  3. Power Options window will now appear. Click on Choose what the power button does from the menu on the left.
  4. Now click on Change settings that are currently unavailable.
  5. Uncheck Turn on fast startup option and click on Save changes.
  6. Fast Startup is a feature that can be activated or disabled from your Windows 10 settings. When enabled, you will be able to power off your device faster than usual. But, in some cases, the WOL protocol will not work when the mentioned feature is activated. Therefore, you need to disable it to fix the problem.

After making these changes, check if the Wake-on-LAN feature is working. This also helps when Wake on Magic Packet is missing.
