Wake on LAN using docking station


New Member

I'm running a Windows home server which wakes all my devices via WoL to run an automated backup. Therefore I bought the official dock. When attached, the Microsoft surface Ethernet adapter pops up in the device manager. However, despite activating wake on magic package in the advanced settings in the device manager, the surface does not wake as intended. Typically WoL has to be enabled in UEFI/Bios but I could not find any according setting.

As this I a major problem and I urgently need the automated daily backups to run it would be great if someone could help me.
