We sold a lot of those boards, and I could not remember any claims for 
WOL support, so I went looking through the literature.
Can you show me an instance of something where Tyan claim they provide 
WOL support on this board?
Looking here:
http://www.tyan.com/products/html/tigermpx.html
ftp://ftp.tyan.com/datasheets/d_s2466_270.pdf

I see no reference to WOL.
Looking at their FAQ i see no mention of WOL:
http://www.tyan.com/support/html/f_s2466.html

They DO sell a server management card that provides equivalent 
capability plus other features:
http://www.tyan.com/products/html/m3289.html

While I understand that you want this to work, I see no reason to 
complain that they do not properly support something they never claimed 
to provide.
That they even tried to help at their tech support strikes me as going 
beyond the call of duty.

Could it be that you are expecting too much? And bitter about not 
getting your way?
