Yes. Here's why. To implement WAKE ON LAN, the Ethernet port would have to stay powered up...
I'm just starting out with this project so baby steps at 1st.
1 - Have DSL
2 - have 2 desk tops with XP home
3 - Laptop XP Pro at times
4 - Netgear RP614 router
both can use the internet (what I want at 1st). when the pc's are powered down I still see the port light is still lit on the router. Is this normal and does it pose any security issues? I have passed all "Shields UP" tests so I'm not worried when the PC's are on but what about when they are off and the soft firewalls are down. I have set the "wake on lan" to off.
Thanks for any guidance.
