I want to be able to have my home computer setup where if I'm away I would
be able to power up computer over the internet and use remote desktop.

I saw that there is a device called "DataProbe iBoot Remote Reboot Switch"
that is made by DataProbe where you control computer over the net. So I was
wondering if this would work between my Linksys router and computer and has
any one else use it.
