Hey! this is really crazy :) but it works! To bo honest - I really do
not know what crazy bug could cause problems like this. I thought it's
NIC thing to manage all the work about WOL. I thought OS only sets NIC
into "WOL mode".

But seeing this - one packet for windows and one magic packet for linux
