WNDR3400v3 Shows Connection for Shutdown PC

I have a LAN through a Netgeer router (WNDR3400v3).  The LAN has two PCs connected via Ethernet cables.  The cables are connected to ports 2 and 4 on the router. 

 

Why does the router show port 4 active when that PC is shutdown?

Maybe because PCI Wakeup or WoL is enabled in the BIOS?

(PS: your router is ancient. Better upgrade to current standards)

Re: WNDR3400v3 Shows Connection for Shutdown PC

That is it!  I had tried an application to wake my wife's PC from mine and mine from hers.  It never really worked as I wished, so I deleted it.  I forgot to turn off Wakeup in my BIOS. 

 

Thanks.
