    have you thought about getting a very low power wireless router and going through the NIC on your comp? i know that my router (dlink di-524) supports this. you just need to send the WOL packets to the whole internal subnet. although i havent tested it, it is documented on the dlink site.

    but the big issue in that case is finding a very low power router to prevent massive battery drain.

    That orinoco pci card is interesting, but the only reason I would use this would be for remote monitoring and checking on my truck when I'm away. With my setup, I should be able to get a wifi signal all over the place, but when I get onto a new network, the dhcp will assign me a new IP. How do I do a WOL when I don't know my carputers IP?? I think I have heard of services that let you keep a static IP all over, but I'm not sure if that would work with only the NIC on.
    Anyone??

    Something like this might work for what you want.

    http://www.noip.com/services/page/free/dynamic/dns Just ping the DNS address on your carputer and you have your IP address.

    Good luck,

    WOL is used to remotely "wake up" your computer. It doesn't necessarily have anything to do with IP. You just need some software that sends out a "magic" packet to remotely turn on the computer, such as http://ahh.sourceforge.net/wol/wol.html and all you need to know is your card's MAC address.
