ubuntu 11.10 -- wake on lan

After you setup the BIOS to allow wake up get the ethtool to setup the wake on lan;
sudo apt-get install ethtool

sudo ethtool eth0

Look for the Wake On settings then select one. The most common is "g"

sudo ethtool -s eth1 wol g

shutdown the machine and check that it can be woken from a wake up tool like "wakeonlan"
