In the meantime, I attach the output of dmesg on my system, maybe someone with the same hw can make a comparison.

My dmesg output is the same except:

I would try to start from scratch like this:

Installing this BIOS version. It is not the most current one, but the one i run. After flashing: load/reset BIOS configuration to default. Don't change anything in the BIOS.

HP version: O41 04/02/2011
2011.04.02 (A) (27 May 2011)
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/Te ... b0d8637ec4

Install this nas4free version. No additional configuration is needed for wol.

9.1.0.1 - Sandstorm (revision 804)
http://sourceforge.net/projects/nas4fre ... 1.0.1.804/

After shutdown through web interface. Try to wake up the server like this:

Ok, I installed this one and loaded default optimal settings.
bios.png
Install this nas4free version. No additional configuration is needed for wol.
I downloaded again x64 embedded version from the link you wrote. Even if the default network configuration was wrong (I don't know why, but it sets IP address as 192.168.1.250, but my network is 192.168.178.x), I didn't touch anything.
In fact, the WOL uses only MAC addresses and not IP addresses.
After shutdown through web interface.
Without changing network configuration, the web interface is not accessible. I performed the shutdown through a USB keyboard and the console menu.
Try to wake up the server like this:

http://matcode.com/wol.htm
mc-wol.exe 00:9c:02:97:56:10
I downloaded again mc.wol.exe from that site and tried to wake the server with exactly the same command...
It doesn't work
The color of the power button stays yellow/orange, but I can see the activity (the related LED blinks) on the network.

Do you think I could have an old firmware of the NIC interface controller?

:(

Ok, I have already lost too much time for this. I'll buy a new NIC board to install in my server and I'll disable the damn embedded Ethernet controller by Broadcom. Maybe in a future NAS4Free version this strange bug will be fixed.

Many thanks to all of you that tried to help me. If some ideas about this problem will come to your minds, please share with me.

You're right, even on my N40L dmesg reports BCM5784.

Anyway some days ago I opened the case and extracted the motherboard and the Ethernet controller really mounted is the Broadcom BCM5723. I don't know why it's recognized as BCM5784, maybe they are very similar. On Broadcom website, I can find useful info only for BCM5723. Anyway in the programmer's guide of BCM5723 there are many references to BCM5784.

In the meantime I have checked the firmware version of the Broadcom chip under Linux (ethtool -i eth0):

driver: tg3
version: 3.123
firmware-version: 5723-v3.35
bus-info: 0000:02:00.0
support_statistics: yes
support_tests: yes
support_eeprom-access: yes
support_register-dump: yes

Here it appears a BCM5723. Can someone make the same thing? Maybe the different behaviour of WOL could be explained with a different firmware version.

Yesterday I tried to wake my n40l and it wouldn't wake on lan any more.
The thing is that I have installed the beta .833 firmware - perhaps there is something ommited there????
Anyways when I have the time I will install .804 again and hopefully it will work again.
If it doesn't.... we have a problem...

@pozz:
Just remembered that after installing the experimental firmware, I also changed the setting in the BIOS regarding sata/ide mode. (for full speed it has to be disabled, but when wol was working I had it (by mistake) enabled). This setting is logically irrelevant to the wol thing, but you can check to see what happens (perhaps it is a bug/limitation and this setting prevents wol from working). Long shot but worth a try...
In my case, at least, one of those two things made wol stop working anymore: either the experimental firmware, or the bios setting. Otherwise we are chasing ghosts...

Thank you for the suggestion, but I couldn't find those option in the BIOS. I have the option SATA Controller Mode in Advanced -> IDE Configuration, but it could be set only to IDE, RAID or AHCI (no Enabled/Disabled). The original setting was AHCI and WOL didn't work. I tried with IDE and RAID but nothing changed.

In the same menu, there's the option Data Write Cache that was Enabled. I tried to disable but nothing changed.

Broadcom says 3.35 is the last firmware version for my NIC controller. Has someone the possibility to check this info? Maybe WOL works on an old firmware version and not on a newer firmware.

The setting i am talking about is a setting in the hacked bios.
Southbridge config, sata ports 4/5. The proper setting to have full speed is to have the setting as disabled, but wol was working for me when it was by mistake set to enabled. ( again presuming that this setting could affect wol which i highly doubt...)

LATER EDIT:Just downgraded to version 804 which had wol working and all is ok again, So I guess changing something in the BIOS makes no sense.. It must have been a code ommision in the .820 experimental release...

I had the same problem, N54L Server with latest NAS4Free SW and WOL not working. I found now that in my case the difference is the network speed of the Ethernet link. When the NAS4Free server has a gigabit link when it is powered off is WOL working. When I connect the server to a 100MBit WOL is not working.

So the WOL patch for the Broadcom driver is still not perfect.

This is interesting, because my Ethernet link is 100Mbps and it is not working. Unfortunately I don't have a Gigabit link to test WOL functionality in that case.

Hi!

I am using 9.3.0.2.1213 and though I have read that the bge patch should have already been included in the trunk development, WOL is not working out of the box with my HP Microserver N40L... Does anyone have any advice on how to get it working the easy way? I have checked I have the latest BIOS from HP, also the integrated NIC with latest firmware upgraded, ...

Thanks a lot in advance!

Hi,
I'm using the patched version of the BGE driver, the one made for previous 9.2 release, get it from here: viewtopic.php?f=58&t=5916&start=25#p33465.

This driver works fine also with current 9.3 release after executing the same procedure as reported here: viewtopic.php?f=58&t=5916&start=25#p32411.

Briefly:
  • 1 - Log into nas webserver, move to System->Advanced page.
    2 - Open the loader.conf tab and enter the variable if_bge_load with value YES
    3 - Extract the patched driver somewhere in your NAS (i.e. in a CIFS share).
    4 - Log into your NAS using SSH
    5 - Remove previous if_bge.ko driver (in previous release it was in gz compressed format), following the brief procedure in the thread I suggested above
    6 - Copy the patched BGE driver from the CIFS share, using SSH or the File Manager available into the web interface
    7 - Reboot the NAS.
Try yourself and post your results!
Simon

After two years I decided to try the latest Nas4Free release, 11.0.0.4.4141. Unfortunately WOL doesn't work yet.

Here arinci suggested to use the bge driver compiler for an older FreeBSD release, because it works with WOL and because it works with FreeBSD 9.3.

I haven't tried yet, but I think the old good bge driver doesn't work anymore with the latest FreeBSD. Do you have other suggestions?

Nas4free 11

I finally got fed up waiting for the freebsd patch to appear through the official updates

I found the 10.3 patch here
https://bitbucket.org/NamTaf/bge-wol-freebsd-10.1-patch

And downloaded the device driver from here
ftp.freebsd.org

Created a new patch file - if_bge-rel11.c.patch (below)

Compiled in a freebsd jail on my HP NL40 Microserver - running 11.0.0.4 - Sayyadina (revision 4303)
to create new if_bge.ko (inclided in the zip file below)

Then followed the instructions here
http://forums.nas4free.org/viewtopic.ph ... 6&start=25

WOL now works for me on my three HP ProLiant Turion II N40L MicroServer machines

From searching the internet there appear to be some warnings about the bge0 driver with wol
which are not on 1xGB lan. I am using a 1xGB lan and have not had any issues.

Many thanks to Adam Jones for the Freebsd 10 patch

If you download this and use this - its entirely at your own risk
I am not a device driver expert - I simply replicated what Adam did on rel 10
Have been using this for about 1 month - moved abut 20 TB of data through the NIC and so far so good

Hope this helps someone

Thanks markko71 for let us know and MHS0027 for your effort.
It worked for me also :-)
In my case the mount command was
# mount /dev/gpt/gptroot /cf
Hope to be patched in the next version.

Hi.

I just upgraded from Nas4free 11.1.0.4 - Atomics (revision 5579) to XigmaNas 11.2.0.4 - Omnius (revision 5774) on my HP Microserver N54L and WOL isn't avaliable any more.

Is there a way to get WOL avaliable again ?

If I understood what happened correctly, the patches to make WOL work in 11.1.0.4 stopped systems with Broadcom LAN chips from booting 11.2.0.4 so were removed. I think the team is waiting to see how many people ask before doing anything. Asking again in the Release Builds section might give your request better visibility.

Hi, the discussion starts exactly here: viewtopic.php?f=78&t=13807#p85480. Just read the thread till the end. And this is the final decision of the developers: viewtopic.php?f=78&t=13807&start=30#p85576 - the WOL problem should be fixed upstream in FreeBSD kernel, so this is FreeBSD developers' task. Maybe you should submit a bug report to FreeBSD development team.
