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.
