I've tried with NFORCE-Linux-x86-1.0-0292-pkg1.run, but this certainly does not work "out of the box" on my Abit NF7-S rev. 2.0. I'm really curious how this works with your Chaintech.

Is there anyone else that has successfully enabled WOL with the nvnet driver? For now, I think I will stick with forcedeth. Even if WOL is possible with nvnet it is a pain to get networking back, when you install a new kernel.

Unfortunately, the forcedeth team remains tacent for now, I guess they are busy.

My specs:
Abit nf7-s
2.6.8.1 kernel
0292 nvnet revision
Debian sid
