Dear All!

First my configuration:
Slimserver:
Via Epia with Windows XP SP2 (MediaCenter edition)
Slimserver V 6.5.0
100MB wired network

Squeezebox 1 (2 was wrong! Sorry)
connected with network cable, no wireless network used


Now my question:
How can i configure slimserver, so that the server goes into standby (S3) some minutes after (or immediatelly after) the squeezebox was powered off?
And also that the server wakes up when i switch the squeezebox on again?

Can I configure the sqeezebox to send a WOL (magic paket) to the server? (If yes, i would be able to set the "Only managed stations can wake the system" in the device manager.)
But up to now i think the squeezebox didn't sent any IP paket to the server, because the server even doesn't wake when this option is disabled and only "this device can wake the system" is enabled).
Any ideas?

Regards
Erich

the BIOS of your server. As for your other question, check out the
PowerSave plugin.

Why wouldn't it work on a wireless LAN bridged with a wired LAN?
That's the usual configuration for a network isn't it?

If the computer side is wired and the Squeezebox side is wireless and
it's a bridge, not a router, then yes, it should work.

Hello!

First one correction, i have a squeezebox 1 not 2.
It doesn't support WPA and therefore i don't use the wireless network. But the slimserver and the squeezebox is in the same wired network. There is only a switch between the server and the box. Therefore the WOL (magic) paket should be transfered from the box to the server.
If i use a PC in the same network to send a WOL to the server the server wakes up as expected but when i power up the squeezebox the server remains in standby and the squeezebox shows "Cannot find slimserver...".

So if i want to hear music i first have to jump up two stairs, power up my server then went downstairs again to listen music.
That's not so good...

Any ideas?

AFAIK, routers that combine a router with a WAP let the WAP act as a
bridge between the wireless network. I guess it's possible to act as a
router between the two but I doubt that this is very popular in home
environments.

Sorry, the Squeezebox 1 does not support WoL. See the Wiki:
