Default Wake on lan - is my onboard NIC supported?

Trying to play with wol, wake on lan for the first time.

I've got this motherboard: Asus NCCH-DL - it is from 2004.

The onboard NIC is: Intel®PRO /1000 CT Network Connection

I've got Phoenix Bios V6.00PG

I can't find anything about wol capabilities in the bios, but this strikes me as weird as the motherboard supports two CPUs.

Also, I don't know if this has any relevance, but if I turn the computer off the lan port is still lit.

My question is: Can I set up WOL with this setup, or do I need to get another NIC?

Edit: The lan controller is Intel 82547GI (according to the manual for the mobo), which seems to support wol. However, there is nothing in the documentation that says where in the bios it should be turned on. I can't find it when looking for it either.
