Detailed Description

The Disable-NetAdapterPowerMangement cmdlet disables specific power management features on the network adapter. If no power parameters are specified then all power management features are disabled.

Parameters

-ArpOffload

Manages the address resolution protocol (ARP) offload capability of the adapter.
The computer, when in low power mode using the ARP offload technology, is able to offload the responsibility of handling responses for incoming ARP protocol requests.

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.

-D0PacketCoalescing

Manages the D0 packet coalescing capability of the network adapter.
This feature enables power saving on the computer by reducing the number of receive interrupts. This reduces the number of receive interrupts by coalescing random broadcast or multicast packets. The processing overhead and power consumption is significantly reduced on the computer.

-DeviceSleepOnDisconnect

Manages the device sleep on disconnect capability of the network adapter.
This feature allows the device to stand-by in a low power mode when media is disconnected and wake when media is connected again.

-RsnRekeyOffload

Manages the Wi-Fi robust security network (RSN) rekey offload capability of the network adapter.
The computer, when it goes into sleep state, is able to offload the group temporal key (GTK) rekeying for wake on wireless LAN (WoWLAN).

-SelectiveSuspend

Manages the selective suspend capability of the network adapter.
The network drive interface specification (NDIS) selective suspend interface allows NDIS to suspend an idle network adapter by transitioning the adapter to a low-power state. This enables the computer to reduce the power overhead on the CPU and network adapter.

-ThrottleLimit<Int32>

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

-WakeOnMagicPacket

Manages the wake on magic packet capability of the network adapter.
The magic packet is a broadcast frame containing anywhere within its payload 6 bytes of all 255 (FF FF FF FF FF FF in hexadecimal), followed by sixteen repetitions of the 48-bit MAC address of the target computer, for a total of 102 bytes.

-WakeOnPattern

Manages the wake on pattern capability of the network adapter.
A wake pattern refers to network packet filters that determine if incoming network traffic should wake the computer. These patterns can be enabled on the network adapter.
The following wake patterns may be supported by a network adapter:
- Wake Pattern
- Wake on new incoming TCP connection for IPv4 and IPv6 including TCP SYN IPv4 and TCP SYN IPv6.
- 802.1x re-authentication packets
- Bitmapped Patterns. Most network adapters can be programmed with bit-mapped pattern filters. Bitmapped patterns are defined by a bit-map mask and a pattern filter. As a network packet is received, it is masked using the bitmap mask and then compared to the pattern filter. If there is a match, then the network adapter wakes the computer.

<CommonParameters>

This cmdlet supports the common parameters: -Verbose, -Debug, -ErrorAction, -ErrorVariable, -OutBuffer, and -OutVariable. For more information, see    about_CommonParameters.

Inputs

The input type is the type of the objects that you can pipe to the cmdlet.

  • Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#ROOT/StandardCimv2/MSFT_NetAdapter PowerManagementSettingData[]

    The Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance object is a wrapper class that displays Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) objects. The path after the pound sign (#) provides the namespace and class name for the underlying WMI object.


Outputs

The output type is the type of the objects that the cmdlet emits.

  • Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#ROOT/StandardCimv2/MSFT_NetAdapter PowerManagementSettingData

    The Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance object is a wrapper class that displays Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) objects. The path after the pound sign (#) provides the namespace and class name for the underlying WMI object.


Examples

EXAMPLE 1

This example disables power management on the network adapter named Ethernet 1 and restarts the network adapter.


PS C:\> Disable-NetAdapterPowerManagement -Name "Ethernet 1"

EXAMPLE 2

This example assigns a variable to the network adapter named Ethernet 3 and then inputs that variable into this cmdlet.


 

PS C:\> $netAdapter1 = Get-NetAdapter –Name "Ethernet 3"

 

PS C:\> Disable-NetAdapterPowerMangement –InputObject $netAdapter1

 

This cmdlet uses the pipeline to select the network adapter named Ethernet 3 and then pipe that object into this cmdlet.


PS C:\> Get-NetAdapter –Name "Ethernet 3" | Disable-NetAdapterPowerMangement

EXAMPLE 3

This example disables power management on the network adapter named Ethernet 2 and specifies that the network adapter is not restarted.


PS C:\> Disable-NetAdapterManagement -Name "Ethernet 2" -NoRestart
