Limitation
WOL cannot resume from S5 in AC
Reference:
ECR129967 Win 8:Wake on LAN cant resume from S5 in AC Mode

Reason :
Limitation approved. Help center info

WOL cannot resume from S4 in DC with BIOS Settings: AC and Battery
Reference:
ECR166870 RG2:W864:WOL wakes system in DC mode,BIOS set to AC mode
Reason :
Limitation approved. Help center info

Modify Option is grayed out
Reference:
ECR220226/ECR220227Win7/Win8.1:RTK:Modify option in Ethernet Installer is not clickable
Reason:
The Modify's behavior is the same with Remove, it is unnecessary create two the same options in the installer.
But the Modify option cannot remove from installer, because it is installer limitation.
Therefore, we grayed out this option to disable this function.
Restriction
Information
1. #111753 WOL function testing is not working in Windows 7 Intel ethernet (Permanent Limitation)
2. Ref CMVC: #111838 W7:Wake on Link/Lan not working in Win7 using Realtek ethernet
3. Wake on LAN design based on Microsoft Website http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2776718
The "Wake on LAN" (WOL) feature wakes a computer from a low-power state when a network adapter detects a WOL event. Typically, such an event is a specially constructed Ethernet packet. The default behavior in response to WOL events has changed from Windows 7 to Windows 8.
Windows 7
In Windows 7, the default shutdown operation puts the system into the classic shutdown state (S5), and all devices are put into the lowest power state (D3). WOL from S5 is not officially supported in Windows 7. However, some network adapters can be left armed for waking if enough residual power is available. Therefore, waking from S5 is possible on some systems if enough residual power is supplied to the network adapter even though the system is in the S5 state and devices are in D3.
Windows 8 and Windows 8.1
In Windows 8 and Windows 8.1, the default shutdown behavior puts the system into the hybrid shutdown state (S4), and all devices are put into D3. WOL from S4 or S5 is unsupported. Network adapters are explicitly not armed for WOL in either S5 or S4 cases because users expect zero power consumption and battery drain in the shutdown state. This behavior removes the possibility of invalid wake-ups when an explicit shutdown is requested. Therefore, WOL is supported only from sleep (S3) or hibernation (S4) states in Windows 8 and 8.1.

Defect Reference: ECR167902 W8:Realtek:Shutdown WOL is available in DM
