Remotely Changing NIC Driver Settings in Windows 10 Help

06/08/2020 302 views

I currently trying to set up Wake-On-LAN for our mostly dell network and figured I need to change 3 things. I need to Edit BIOS settings Via the Dell Command |Configure tool, set up relay smart labels per subnet in KACE, and Change the NIC driver settings to allow Wake-On-LAN. I am stuck on the NIC driver settings. I need to disable Energy Efficient Ethernet and enable Only allow a magic packet to wake the computer. I cant seem to find a way to do this en masse to our systems remotely. Is there a way to do this via KACE script? Or is there a better way to do this that I am not seeing?

Fairly new to this so any information would be extremely helpful.

You will still need to use a Dell Software utility that sets bios settings, its called the Dell Client Configuration Toolkit and you can find more details about it from this link


Basically you will need to create a script to run the command with switches that you need to enable wake on LAN
