Re: How to disable PCI LAN?

if you boot into BIOS, and go to Network under Config, what are your Wake On LAN and Ethernet LAN Option ROM options set to? I always disable on all of my machines.

 

if you do this, are you able to remove the PCI LAN options from your BIOS boot order screens?

 

regards.

Will this affect Wifi services?

Re: How to disable PCI LAN?

no.

the settings are specifically for remote booting/admin of the pc over a wire vs physically at the keyboard. i believe it takes specialized software, found almost exclusively in big corporate shops, to even use the remote boot/admin features.

 

as i mentioned, i turn them off on *every* pc i have or support and every one of these machines has no problem whatsoever using wired or wireless ethernet.

 

hth clarify a bit.
