WOL (Wake On LAN) no longer working

Somewhere along the road from 7.0 to 7.1 WOL stopped working for me.
I have an "82546EB Dual Port Gigabit Ethernet Controller" which, after
shutdown, has link lights on the card and switch.  Nothing has changed
on the PC or NIC BIOS.  I noticed new wol ifconfig settings, and add
"wol" to my rc.conf, with no effect.


$pciconf -vl
em0 at pci0:0:8:0: class=0x020000 card=0x118a8086 chip=0x10798086 rev=0x03 hdr=0x00
    vendor     = 'Intel Corporation'
    device     = '82546EB Dual Port Gigabit Ethernet Controller'
    class      = network
    subclass   = ethernet


Thanks for any help.
