Wake On Lan doesn't work for the following on board NIC card in a HP VL400
computer :
01:04.0 Ethernet controller: 3Com Corporation 3c905C-TX/TX-M [Tornado] (rev
I'm using Ubuntu(Edgy)

I've tried already with the following :
Add the following to /etc/modules
3c59x options=0x408

Add the following to /etc/modules
options 3c59x enable_wol=1

but without success.

I've the same machine but with windows xp installed on it, and there it
Wake on Lan is enabled in the BIOS

Some outputs

alef at FIRSTLOOK-UB:~$ sudo ethtool eth0

alef at FIRSTLOOK-UB:~$

I don't have the following lines
	Supports Wake-on: g
	Wake-on: g
and this is not a good sign.
Maybe the driver is not good in Ubuntu?

Does somebody have some other ideas?
