    Wake on Lan not working - Dell Inspiron 530


    I have a Dell Inspiron 530 and I cannot get WOL to work.

    I have installed a new TP-LINK TG-3468 Network Card, which supports WOL.
    Remote Wake Up is enabled in the BIOS, as are the usual required settings on the Network Card properties.

    However whenever I hibernate, sleep, or shutdown my PC, the lights switch off on the Network Card so it is no longer receiving a connection.

    Running Win8.1 - have also disabled Fast Startup

    Any help would be appreciated!

    The Windows 8 drivers from tp-link may help, I can't seem to find any Windows 8.1 specific drivers from tp-link.

    TG-3468 - Welcome to TP-LINK

    Be sure and enable the WOL/magic packet settings via the power management tab.

Hi. Yesterday, I restored my Inspiron 15 to it's factory settings. Post-reset, I installed all drivers for Windows 8 directly from the Dell website except for the AMD driver which I took from the AMD website (just wanting to get the latest directly from the source, I guess). I also used that...

Can't access gpedit.msc on Dell Inspiron 15
I can't access gpedit.msc on my Dell Laptop. Searching for it in the Charms Bar Search option gives a Nil return. Do the Dell Laptops with pre-installed Windows 8 don't have the Local Group Policy Editor? I find it difficult to believe that gpedit.msc is missing in Dells. Can some expert please...
