Title says it all.
Dell P3 800 Optiplex GX110
Even when plugging the computer back into an outlet, the router lights up a connection.
Wake on lan in the bios is not enabled.

Suggestions?
Should I even worry about it?

No trojans , virus or rootkits........it's a new clean install of win2k.

From a search, it seems there are some NICs that don't turn off with the a computer shutdown: TomsHardware
