    Theres an app which can switch your pc on from a remote host by sending the ethernet card a unique packet, its called wake on lan, is it possible to do the same thing with an external modem? i have the asus a7n8x if thats any help, so the board does support remote power on...

    as far as i know your modem needs to be enabled 4 "wake on lan" to use it, not only your board............ so check your ethernet card manual.........

    There is no reason why you shouldnt keep the modem on. You will need it to be on to switch on your pc remotely anyway.
