How can I get Wake-On-LAN working on a RTL8111F/8168B chip?

Hi, I have an ASUS P8H61-MX-USB3 motherboard, which uses a Realtek RTL8111F/8168B chip? Wake-On-LAN is enabled in the BIOS, and running

ethtool eth0 | grep Wake-on"

gets me:

Supports Wake-on: pumbg
        Wake-on: g

I even added "enabled" to /sys/class/net/eth0/device/power/wakeup and it's made no difference.

At first when it wasn't working out of the box, I then downloaded the latest drivers (v034) for the chip and installed them, and "lsmod | grep r8168" now shows that module as running (Whether that is actually controlling the chip, or the default out of the box module still is, I don't know). I'm on a single boot system so I can't modify the WOL mode in Windows. I'm positive it isn't my router, as other PCs in my house can send and recieve magic packets, and be woken by them fine.

Does anyone have any more solutions? Is it a case of not having enough power. I'm on a 500w power supply but i'm only running onboard graphics and i've had no signs of not having enough power to run the system.
