BOAMOT-467 - Stone / Asus (Q87) CS-B - Wake on LAN (WOL) does not work


Systems based on the Q87 CS-B motherboard (BOAMOT-467) may not give reliable wake on LAN functionality. Wake functionality may only work when the system has been powered down through the operating system (with the AC mains not disconnected from the power supply) or it may not work at all. This is evident on machines shipped up to and including 27/1/2014.
