I have an HP 420Z that I'm using as a backup server running TrueNas Core 12 (the new name for FreeNas) This server sits in a shelf in the basement and I used to turn it on with WOL as needed. However the onboard NIC has ceased to function and for the life of me I can't get it to work with 2 different NIC cards I know have WOL . One is an Intel Pro 1000 dual Port and the other a BroadCom NetExtreme 1000. The motherboard settings are the same as when the onboard Nic was working except now it is disabled in the Bios. Not that it matters since it doesn't work if it is enabled either.
What I need to find is card that will actually turn the workstation on like the old onboard NIC did. Any ideas will be appreciated.

which intel pro 1000 card model do you have? they make client (desktop) and server models and only the CT model had WOL support for desktop systems as far as i recall. also the pro 1000 line for desktops did not have a specific win 10 intel based driver it uses the generic microsoft pro 1000 driver that lacks the WOL support the intel driver had for earlier OS's
as such this card appears not to have WOL support under win 10 due to the driver being a generic one and i believe the generic MS win 10 broadcom 57xx driver has the same issue
try locating a broadcom win 10 57xx client driver, once this driver is installed you should be able to configure the card for wol
the only such driver i could quickly find was on the HP enterprise web site

Off hand I know it is a Dell 0G174P Server card and that FreeNas/FreeBSD shows there is support for WOL when checked with ifconfig -m. Since the machine is apart at the moment I can't tell you what Intel model it shows up as but it does have WOL support. The problem doesn't seem to be the card but keeping power to the card so it can actually wake up. The WOL settings in the HP Z420 bios seem only to affect the onboard Nic. Even when the machine was "off" there would still be some activity shown with the onboard Nic and that isn't happening with the card. It could even be possible that this can't be done because of the way HP did their bios but if that is the case I'm hoping somebody would know that definitively.

again,....................if the driver does not support "WOL" then it's a moot point that the card does,.... as you will not be able to enable/use WOL since the generic MS driver for this card has no support for WOL under windows 10.........got it?

replace windows 10 (sorry,habit) with Truenas12..... rest of statement stands
it appears that like i said truenas current release may not have fully implemented WOL in your cards drivers
for the z420 WOL is located in the bios at Advanced -> Device Options ->S5 Wake on Lan

You are correct if I was living in April of 2019 (your first link) or June of 2011(!) (your second link). My card is supported, I didn't just randomly pick a NIC card and hope it worked. Perhaps I should have been more specific in my original post when I said "I KNOW THEY WORK WITH WOL" because they have both been in FreeNas boxes previously.
