Introduction

Every BIOS is different so that not every has an option to enable or disable the Wake On LAN functionality.

In a general way to enable the Wake On LAN there should be a section for Power Management or if the NIC is PCI attached the option should be in the PCI peripherals section.

Cable needed

Some older network cards requires a cable to be connected before they can use the Wake On LAN.
