Hi czm97176,

Do you mind to elaborate how you have it tested?

i use WOL everyday (1408 bios) through ASUS RT-N66U and AiCloud (Offical Apps from ASUS) , everything work and i am happy with that.
However, after upgrade to 1604 , enable the APM ( Powe on By PCIE/PCI ), WOL is not working anymore,
after that i restore it back to 1408, it work again,
i tested it twice. i am pretty sure the new bios break the WOL function.

Why did you upgrade BIOS, what other issue did you have since you upgraded?

upgrading BIOS makes sense to me when one wants to utilize UEFI boot (secure & fast enabled) and enjoy better hardware compatibility with win8 features and such... I went this route myself recently ... otherwise I would stay on old good win7 pro and 704 BIOS for MVE ...

I think people noticing trouble with latest BIOSes, really should open tech cases with ASUS support ... I wouldn't count on insta-solving them, but at least their development team knows how widespread the issue is and could replicate the problem if properly described ... ultimately fix the root cause in next release :)

to be fair to the OP - Asus change-notes don't really help matters

"Improve System Stability" - without further elaborating

therefore anyone whos had any instability, be it crashes, resets etc etc - that they can't directly attribute to something else- should update

if the bios update said something lke "increase system stability - network card" or something - people would be able to make a better judgement to whether the bios update is worthwhile or not

as it is - most people would perform a bios update that says "Improve System Stability" - why wouldn't you !

I hope I did not come across as beating up on OP with my, to some, retorical question. Perhaps there was an actual issue. But all too often BIOS is upgraded just because an upgrade is there (been there myself, just been lucky so far, thatīs all). And with product description being as vague as youīre pointing out, Buckster, itīs bound to drag some trouble in itīs wake.
So, before just blindly updating BIOS, have a search on the BIOS revision in question, and ask around if it in any way applies to your particular issue(s).
