I am currently on dialup and have the dialup gateway box connected to a
switch via a WOL nic. The modem connects to the gateway box with a 
serial connection.

I am upgrading to ADSL and will have the ADSL initially, directly 
connected into the switch.

What command or procedure could be used by a hacker coming through my 
ADSL connection into the switch to wake up machines plugged into the 
switch that have Wake-On-LAN nics?

How could I prevent the machines from waking up, besides turning off the
switch or unplugging the network cable?
