What is Wake-on-LAN

Basically put, Wake-on-LAN, otherwise known as 'wol' is the ability to switch a computer that is connected to a network (be it the internet or intranet) on. This can be a very useful ability.

Does my motherboard support Wake-on-LAN?

For Wake-on-LAN to work, the target computer motherboard must support this feature. Generally speaking, the Wake-on-LAN (non)ability of the target motherboard will be specified by the hardware manufacturer. Sometimes, this ability is evident by browsing through said motherboard's BIOS and looking for something like 'PCI Power up'. Most modern motherboards should support Wake-on-LAN.
