I’ve been playing with Dell Command Configure recently and will be doing a few posts on my work.
First up is enabling Wake On Lan (WOL) on Dell Optiplex, Latitude, XPS, Insprion, systems. The main advantage is this can be done remotely, through Windows, and can even be scripted.
You’ll need Dell Command | Configure which you can grab from here. If you are interested in more features, you can read up on the full documentation in the Reference Guide here.
After you install it, you can open the aptly named “Command Configure Command Prompt” tool. From there, you can enter all your arguments that you want to change. To change your Wake On Lan settings, simply type in:
cctk –wakeonlan [enable, disable, enablewakeonwlan, lanorwlan]
The options above are what you can do. You can set it to wake on just wireless, or both wireless and ethernet LAN. For both wlan and lan, your command would be:
cctk –wakeonlan lanorwlan
