    WOL>wake on LAN and WOWLAN>wake on wireless LAN if you didn't know. :rolleyes:

    Here's my situation ;
    I got a desktop with win 7 pro upstairs witch is the only pc I need to boot remotely, nothing more needed just boot up like normal and that's it.
    The other 2 downstairs are a old desktop with win xp pro and a wireless connected laptop with win 7 home premium.
    So I just want to be able to boot the upstairs PC with bolt the others PC's.

    I know about the bios settings but do I just change it on the target pc only? :confused:
    Security from outside connections , something to worry about? :confused: Some info please
    Free-ware programs needed if you have no access to you modem/router settings (owned by ISP)?:confused:
    XP machine booting a win 7 machine possible?:confused:
    .net framework up-to-date btw.
    I know about the settings in windows that have to be changed, just dont know how exactly...:confused:. Do I do it on all machines or just the target PC? :confused:

    So I'm guessing you know what to say to me :D.
    All 3 PC's have instant access for remote control with one mouse click and without confirmation from the target PC, I just can't boot them up yet and that's the only thing that's bothering me.
    So I hope you can give me the most simple and user friendly way to do this without compromising my network's security from devices outside my LAN.

    thanks beforehand.

    greets,
