But most drivers in Linux disable WOL per default (on the NIC). It's a common problem: WOL works if I boot into Windows then shutdown. When I shutdown from Linux the PC doesn't wake up. Only a few drivers in Linux 2.4.x (vanilla) provide a kernel option like "enable_wol=1", usually you need a kernel patch (if you can find one).

Are there similar problems on FreeBSD?
