ethtool version 3

Problem Description:

It is not possible to use WOL with the VIA VT6120/VT6121/VT6122 chipsets. WOL
flag g is set by default.

Steps to reproduce:

#ethtool eth0
Settings for eth0:
        Supported ports: [ TP ]
        Supported link modes:   10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
                                100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full
                                1000baseT/Half 1000baseT/Full
        Supports auto-negotiation: Yes
        Advertised link modes:  Not reported
        Advertised auto-negotiation: No
        Speed: 100Mb/s
        Duplex: Full
        Port: Twisted Pair
        PHYAD: 0
        Transceiver: internal
        Auto-negotiation: on
        Supports Wake-on: puag
        Wake-on: g
        Current message level: 0x00000002 (2)
        Link detected: no

WOL does not work, no matter what flags for WOL are set.
Comment 1 Martin J. Bligh 2006-05-03 07:38:51 UTC
Please file fedora bugs in their own bugzilla, or reproduce on mainline
Comment 2 Jon Nelson 2008-07-16 09:23:25 UTC
Is 2.6.25.9 a recent-enough kernel?
I can't make via-velocity WOL work, either.
Comment 3 grider.4 2015-02-19 17:14:42 UTC
It still does not work. I know a bug was patched for this driver a year or so ago to allow it to boot from lan, but this is still broken. Old hardware, I know, but thought I'd mention it here again.

Ethernet does not power down when asleep as I can see the LED flicker when I send a WOL packet but nothing happens. If I suspend from command line, I can wake it, but it is confused and does not renegotiate the ethernet connection correctly. The ralink r8169 on the otehr conputer works fine.
