Default Wireless Adapter that Supports WoWLan

Hello guys-

I've looking everywhere and I can't seem to find a wireless adapter that claims it supports WoWLan. I have a USB T-Link Wireless adapter that does not support the feature. I'm looking for any kind of wireless adapter that would support Wireless Wake on Lan. It's for my business and I need to get this working correctly. Anyone ever get this to work and can tell me what wireless adapter they are using?

Thanks!

Most modern pc's should support Wake on Lan

this is what shows on my wireless network adapter:



I don't see the property discussed in the article. I believe I need to buy a new wireless adapter to get this to work?

no luck

thanks for the try though. I feel like just trying to buy an up to date adapter and crossing my fingers but I just wanted to see if anyone knew.

That's your best bet, get a new one!

Why do you need WoL anyways?

I have a product that I need to demo at clients' offices and I want to put my computer to sleep and then wake it when I need to RDP to access my comp with all the stuff.
