Wake On LAN

I needed a solution to remotely turn on a computer. There are many hardware devices you can buy, but I thought Wake on LAN (WOL) would be the ideal solution and give me a chance to experiment with Microchips ENC28J60 Ethernet controller chip. WOL is a computer networking standard that allows a shut-down computer to be booted remotely. I have written WOL programs in software, but I needed a hardware device that could be wired to a control panel.
