Package: netbase
Version: 4.25
Severity: normal

I'm using an Intel desktop gigabit card (e1000 driver). WoL works once
when I turn the system off right after power on, e. g. when it's
sitting at the grub screen.
However, after a shutdown -h or similar, the machine will refuse to
wake up, because the NIC was apparently shut down with the system (LED
is off).
There're various explanations floating arout for this:
- WoL ia not turned on via ethtool (it is)
- the interface is being brought down prior to shutdown (commenting
out the relevant part of init.d/networking didn't help)
- the driver module is unloaded prior to shutdown (no way to check)

Something shuts dows the card completely, even when it should stay on
in soft-off state.

Feel free to move this to kernel-image-2.6-k7, but I don't think it's
a kernel bug, really - my other machines with different NICs and
kernels behave the same.

The stock Debian testing kernel has for some months now included an
e1000 driver version that does not exhibit the problem. Sorry for not
closing the bug earlier.
