Wake on Wireless LAN?

I have a Lenovo E530 with an on board Broadcom BCM43142 WLAN device.

Should I be able to get Wake on Wireless LAN to work?

I have the newest drivers from Lenovo. I do have it set to allow to wake device with a magic packet in the device manager. I am plugged into AC at the time I put the computer into standby and when I send the magic packet.

I can wake the same laptop when it's connected via Ethernet.

Any ideas?

Nothing. The laptop does not wake from sleep.

Look for it in BIOS settings.

Don't see anything relating to Wireless Wake on LAN in the BIOS. That's generally a separate setting from Wake on LAN, which is in the Bios and on and works (laptop wakes via Ethernet).

As suggested above, WOL does NOT work for wireless, only wired. If you want that capability, you'll need to use a wireless ethernet bridge. Not as convenient, of course, since you have to dangle this device off your ethernet port, but they are quite small these days, and at least it does work assuming you have the WOL feature in your BIOS.
