'[OT] PC Network Adapter as IP Power Switch'

i'm looking for a power switch for a printer in a remote location.
the printer is only usede every then and now, but it always takes me
some time to go there to turn it on.

so i thought about buying an ip controlled power switch, but these
things are relatively expensive.

so i had the idea to use a pc network card with wake-up-on-lan
functionality to control a relais, turning on the printer.

i have no idea if this really works, as i don't know how to connect such
a network card. will this work when just supplying 5v to it's wol
connector, or does it really have to sit in a pci slot?

as far as i remember, calling the card's mac address rises the wol
signal, so this would work to control the power relais.
but does the wol signal stay high forever then?
how can i turn the wol signal off again?

thanx!

Not answering your question directly, maybe my recent reasonings for a
new ink jet printer purchase while looking to buy a spare print head can
be helpful.

1. auto power off and on
2. duplex feature
3. CD/DVD printing
4. pict bridge feature
5. spare print head if you get one that is the same as your AIO printer.
 Here a brand new Canon IP3000 is about the price of its cartridges and
print head combine (In US, you get a much better deal).
6. extra ink cartridges

Cheers, Ling SM
