Microsoft’s Windows operating system comes with the Wake on LAN (WoL) feature which is also available on the Windows 11 OS. It is a networking feature that has been used by IT professionals for years. As the name indicates, it allows you to remotely wake up a computer through a “magic” data packet sent from another PC on your network.
Its working is quite simple. The remote PC “listens” while in sleep or hibernation mode for the data packet and if the packet is detected, the PC wakes up. This allows easier access to other Windows machines across a network. If you want to enable Wake on LAN on Windows 11, then here is a step-by-step guide.
Step 1: Enter the BIOS Settings during the computer boot-up process.
Step 2: In the BIOS/UEFI section, go to “Power Options” or “Advanced” and then enable the “Wake on LAN” options.
Do note that the features or the sections will be different based on the computer’s manufacturer. So, you may want to check the PC maker’s support documentation for more details if you cannot find the option on your device.
Step 3: Now, when the computer loads, open “Device Manager” by right-clicking the Start menu and selecting the option from the menu that appears.
Step 4: In the Device Manager, expand Network Adapters, right-click on the Ethernet adapter, and select Properties.
