  1. Everytime I power on my modem, my computer will turn on automatically. Can anyone tell me why? Can I set it in Bios? or somewhere else?

    Thank you

    There is either a setting in your bios or a there is a jumper setting on your mobo. Refer to your mobo manual, look for "wake on ring" setting and set it to off or disabled.
