      Probed from outside your LAN? You /do/ have a router and are not just
      plugging the ISP feed into a hub? Get thee to www.grc.com and use
      ShieldsUP. Once you are "stealth" the activity seen by your linksys is
      from your LAN.

      My linksys stays on a lot. I think it is a combination of "when to
      sleep" time and network activity.

      Network activity.... when you map a drive letter to the linksys Windows
      is going to ping it once in a while while your PC is in use.

      When all the PC's go to sleep, the linksys does, too.

      You can try un-mapping to the linksys... it should still appear in
      Explorer in Network Places. yeah, I'm still using XP.
