WOL is enabled in BIOS. When I boot into Debian Linux (v7 x64) on another disk, WOL works. With FreeBSD, I cannot wake the host by sending a WOL packet from all computers I've tried.
This MicroServer N40L only has the onboard Broadcom (bge) NIC installed.
I've tried enabling WOL via 'ipconfig';
# ifconfig bge0 wol wol_ucast wol_mcast
After a power cycle, the verbose from ipconfig doesn't provide any indication (WOL_MAGIC) that it's enabled or supported.
I've tried loading the NIC driver as a start up module in the loader.conf;
After a power cycle, still no go. I even tried loading known working driver (From FreeNAS forum post, see link below) to correct this;
Though 'if_bge.ko' didn't work as well.
