I have just received my AMD Ryzen 9 5900x, and now I'm shopping for a new motherboard. One feature that I find extremely important is the ability to wake the computer through a magic packet from full shutdown (WoL - Wake on LAN), as this allows me to include my PC in my home automation. My current motherboard (for Intel) is the Asus Z170 Pro Gaming Aura, and I've been extremely frustrated with the lack of this feature, even though the Asus BIOS does have certain WoL settings (it simply doesn't work). My motherboard before that was an Asrock (no idea which model) and that worked flawlessly with WoL.

Some other features that I would like:
  • ATX size
  • 32GB RAM support
  • Gigabit Ethernet
  • Futureproof
  • Up to around €150
Which motherboard would you guys recommend?

Intel NIC equipped boards have been having issues as of late. You could look for Realtek equipped boards. Due to the processor, you should look at X570 and B550 chipset boards but your budget won't allow you to get "the best". More like mid tier or higher'ish level. Here's a shortlist.
