Microsoft Windows Logo Program System and Device Requirements — 124
To improve the system performance by decreasing the load on the system processor, the PCI network adapters must be bus masters.
Note: CardBus and Mini-PCI implementations do not need to be bus masters.
B126.96.36.199 Any included diagnostics or utilities work and can be accessed from the Network Connections Properties page.
B188.8.131.52.2 Network adapter supports configuration capabilities and registry settings for performance tuning.
See B184.108.40.206 for requirements related to NDI parameters and the Properties page DLL.
B220.127.116.11 Devices that support WOL correctly wake from D3
B18.104.22.168.1 IEEE 802.3 devices support for Wake on LAN from D3 using Pattern Match and Magic Packet
B22.214.171.124.2 WOL is not implemented for PC Card/CardBus devices.
B126.96.36.199.3 USB network devices do not support WOL while on bus power.
External networking devices using USB are not required to support Wake on LAN while operating on bus power.
B188.8.131.52.4 Wireless devices and network devices on mobile PCs are not required to support WOL.
No wireless network connection is required to support Wake on LAN.
Mobile PC Note For mobile PCs, network device wakeup is not required.
B184.108.40.206.5 Support for power state D3 is required for all devices that support Wake on LAN.
For all devices other than IEEE 802.3, support must comply with Network Device Class Power Management Reference Specification if implemented.
The Network Device Class Power Management Reference Specification, Version 2.0, provides definitions of the OnNow device power states (D0–D3) for network adapters. The specification also covers the device functionality expected in each power state and the possible wakeup event definitions for the class.
Network communications devices that directly attach to the PC over a bus that is power managed such as USB or PCI, must comply with this specification.
Note: Network Device Class Power Management Reference Specification does not yet define wakeup mechanisms for ISDN adapters or any network communications adapter that uses ATM signaling, including ADSL.
B220.127.116.11.6 If power states are implemented, comply with Network Device Class Power Management Reference Specification, with exceptions.
Correct support for states D0 – D3 is required if implemented for all other devices, except those that have more than two PHYs or that implement a Fiber PHY.
