The OS doesn't need any support for WOL, all the settings are done in
the BIOS.
Sometimes it's a setting that only says "low power mode" - when it's
enabled, no power is sent to the network card while the computer is
asleep, so no wakeup is possible. A simple way to check is to look at
the NIC while your computer is in sleep - the ethernet connection
light(s) should be on
