Wake on LAN not Working (Realtek LAN Controller)

I've been struggling to get Wake on LAN for a few days now.  Does anyone have any ideas? 

One potential issue I noticed is how I'm not getting any LED activity with the ethernet port while the system is asleep.  I talked to a MSI rep and he had no idea if that was normal behavior or not.

 

Summary:

1) MOBO: MSI X470 Gaming Plus
2) Router is Netgear R6400
3) BIOS ErP set to Disabled
4) BIOS PCIe and USB Wake functions Enabled
5) unRAID 6.7.2
6) S3 Sleep, using S3 Sleep plugin along with the information here http://lime-technology.com/wiki/index.php?title=Setup_Sleep_(S3)_and_Wake_on_Lan_(WOL)
7) I've been using this utility to send the wake packet: https://www.depicus.com/wake-on-lan/wake-on-lan-cmd
8 ) Wake from USB does work

 

Running ethtool eth0 yields this

MSI X470 Gaming Plus - Realtek® 8111H , WOL won't work under Unraid or some Linux platform.

Thanks for the recommendation.   I will buy that if nothing else works.  I found some other potential solutions which I'll try first.

Well I confirmed that I can get WOL working on Windows, but still can't get it working with unRAID.  Is it a driver issue?  I couldn't find any information confirming that my Realtek Chipset was known to not work.  Where should I be looking for that kind of information?

I would also be checking BIOS settings to see if there are any options about WOL.  See if the REaltek NIC has any BIOS options.

I have confirmed my BIOS settings are good.  WOL is lumped into the wake by pcie device setting.  I also disabled Erp for good measure
