Ok. I know my bios, nic, and nic settings are all set to use wake on lan. (I did it myself) Now all I have to do is run a test to see if it works. Anyhow, I know how to use the wake up features, but how in the hell do you use the "turn it off" feature? I don't actually have a home network, just a cable modem. All I will use wake on (and off) lan for is through the dslreports.com wake on lan tool to turn on my pc from a remote location to access my ftp server. Is there a way, over the plain old internet, to turn off the computer, hopefully just as easy? THANKS. --Also-- This is a little dumber, but will I be able to use WOL at all with my computer completely turned off with a cable modem?
