I picked up a dual pro1000 off ebay the other day, and finally installed it
in my server last night.  The em interfaces show up normally, but one
feature that I enjoyed from the fxp that I was previously using, was the it
properly supported WoL without doing anything special.  I have a similar
pro1000 card in a windows server, that works with WoL as expected, and
considering the family lineage, I was kinda expecting the em to work with
WoL right off the bat.

The fxp0 is still in the machine (onboard), but I would rather not keep it
plugged in just for the luxury of being able to wake this box up... I wish
the em would work like I want!

Anyone have some suggestions on getting the em to understand the magic
packets?

Thanks,
