Wake-on-LAN and the em driver (freebsd 7.x)

How can I get the WOL (wake-on-lan) feature to work on my 7-stable system? I
have a dual-boot system with an Intel PRO/1000 PT card that works great with
FreeBSD, but the WOL only works under XP. Is there an ifconfig option (or
similar) to enable WOL under FreeBSD?

I notice that the LED on the gigibit hub for system is not lit after FreeBSD
"halt -p", but is lit (low-speed) after XP shutdown.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks. Kent
