Cialis Compare Levitra Viagra

Cialis compare levitra viagra I got Wake-on-LAN almost working on my desktop computer. Cialis compare levitra viagra It took some trial and error, cialis compare levitra viagra but here are the essential steps:

  • Cialis compare levitra viagra I configured my Gigabyte S-series GA-MA790FX-DS5 motherboard BIOS to have PME Event set to enabled; this enables wake-on-LAN which means, cialis compare levitra viagra apparently, cialis compare levitra viagra that the NIC still receives a little bit of power in order to check for the Magic Packet. Cialis compare levitra viagra I also tweaked the ACPI configuration by setting the ACPI Suspend Type to be S3(STR), cialis compare levitra viagra so that when I do a suspend (rather than hibernate or power-off), cialis compare levitra viagra only RAM gets power and not the CPU.

  • Cialis compare levitra viagra I changed /etc/rc./init.d/halt so that it ends with:

    # Wakeup-on-LAN
    
    /usr/sbin/ethtool -s eth0 wol g
    sleep 5 # one source claims this matters
    
    exec $command $HALTARGS
    
  • Cialis compare levitra viagra I created /etc/pm/sleep.d/99network:

    # Restart the network interfaces after suspending

    case "$1" in
        thaw|resume)
            service network restart
            ;;
        suspend|hibernate)
            /usr/sbin/ethtool -s eth0 wol g
        sleep 5 # one source claims this matters
            ;;
        *)
            ;;
    esac
    
    exit $?
    
  • Cialis compare levitra viagra To allow waking up my desktop from the outside, cialis compare levitra viagra I made sure my router allows WOL packets to reach the machine. Cialis compare levitra viagra One can do this either by setting the machine to be the DMZ server or by explictly configuring these packets to be routed through (typically on port 9)

  • Cialis compare levitra viagra Possibly unnecessary but it can’t hurt: Disabled the standard r8169 driver and instead installed the official r8168 RealTek driver for my onboard Realtek 8111B ethernet chip. Cialis compare levitra viagra I followed the directionsin the README, cialis compare levitra viagra which essentially amount to the steps here.

  • Cialis compare levitra viagra Possibly unnecessary: I created /etc/pm/config.d/config with contents:

    SUSPEND_MODULES="r8168"
    

Cialis compare levitra viagra That was enough to enable suspend-to-LAN. Cialis compare levitra viagra To actually wake the computer, cialis compare levitra viagra one needs a client that can send the Magic Packet to the wakeable machine. Cialis compare levitra viagra These clients thus need the IP address of the machine (or a broadcast address) and the MAC address of the NIC that is a wol-able.

  • Cialis compare levitra viagra I got an Android app for my phone, cialis compare levitra viagra aWOL that allows multiple profies for various machines that can be woken up remotely.

  • Cialis compare levitra viagra I installed ether-wake and wol clients on various computers from which I want to wake up my desktop.

Cialis compare levitra viagra This set-up seems to work pretty well. Cialis compare levitra viagra There are some occasional issues I’m encountering that I’m still trying to debug:

  • Cialis compare levitra viagra Rarely, cialis compare levitra viagra I’ve noticed that if I suspend or hibernate and resume too many times too quickly, cialis compare levitra viagra these operations start failing with a Device or resource busy message in /var/log/pm-suspend/log, cialis compare levitra viagra but if I wait for a while and try again, cialis compare levitra viagra it starts working.

  • Cialis compare levitra viagra The remaining problem is this: if I’m powered off for too long, cialis compare levitra viagra the card does not respond to the Magic Packet. Cialis compare levitra viagra This defeats the whole purpose of this feature, cialis compare levitra viagra obviously, cialis compare levitra viagra so I’m trying to figure out under what conditions this happens. Cialis compare levitra viagra I found this problem mentioned elsewhere, cialis compare levitra viagra but no solution as of yet. Cialis compare levitra viagra I asked Gigabyte customer support, cialis compare levitra viagra but have not heard back from them yet.

    Powered on or off, one should always respond to the Magic Pocket.
