How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Improve WOL functionality with default MAC and IP address configuration

It would be nice if we could specify a default MAC on device import. This way we could set the hard-wired MAC as the default. Or if there is a way to detect hard-wired vs wireless MAC so we can exclude the wireless MAC for WOL.

The other piece to this is the broadcast address. We would need a way to specify the broadcast address for the wired IP address? Currently when we remove a laptop from a cart or dock it connects to wireless and then the last registered address in SCCM is for the wireless.

Maybe we could have a way to exclude IP ranges so the wireless address doesn't get recorded in the database?

    Considering that you would never want to wake up a laptop from the wireless adaptor, in case it was in its bag and burns your company down.
    It seems pretty silly that you can not choose a network adaptor, as there are probably 10's of thousands of schools and universities out there, that have to manually take all of their laptops out of the trolleys on a regular basis to facilitate updates and software installs.
