We sold a lot of those boards, and I could not remember any claims for
WOL support, so I went looking through the literature.
Can you show me an instance of something where Tyan claim they provide
WOL support on this board?
I see no reference to WOL.
Looking at their FAQ i see no mention of WOL:
They DO sell a server management card that provides equivalent
capability plus other features:
While I understand that you want this to work, I see no reason to
complain that they do not properly support something they never claimed
That they even tried to help at their tech support strikes me as going
beyond the call of duty.
Could it be that you are expecting too much? And bitter about not
getting your way?
