Wake on Lan on Debian/Proxmox host


Mar 12, 2019
Hello guys!

I would like to enable and use Wake on Lan option on my laptop with proxmox installed over Debian.

As far as I know my debian system does not have ip and does not have internet connection by ethernet cable (it does not show in router connection aswell). If i need internet connection i just turn on wifi and use it that way but i am not sure wake on lan is working over wifi - probably my laptop doesnt support that.

With this config https://pastebin.com/sNPSRrNY my VMs have internet connection and is working fine. I read a lot of articles about config interfaces and wol and i have conclusion i need to set static ip on my laptop with debian/proxmox so i did it: https://pastebin.com/1nqN3WLg and i restarded laptop

After that my VMs lost connection i needed to set it to previous settings to turn it back.

What i need to do to have ethernet connection on ma laptop and working internet on vms in the same time with the same cable?

Sorry for my bad english. In advance thank you for your time
