* SSH (to router) & SNMP support
* Very extensive filtering, logging, monitoring and traffic graphing support
* Advanced QoS & traffic shaping
* VLAN support & Ethernet Over IP Tunneling
* Bridging controls
* Multiple virtual wireless access points / WDS bridges
* RADIUS & 802.1x support
* Support for installing extra packages like print servers, storage servers, and other persistent network services
* Ability to send WoL on local subnet

Does any of the above allow turning on a pc on local network from the Internet?

That one.

But the PC has to be wake-on-lan capable first.

...and enabled in the BIOS, if it gives that option. Some PCs have it disabled by default.

Most newer NAS boxes support WoL too. This is the largest reason I wish my router supported DD-WRT - for being able to turn on my NAS remotely if needing to access files in an "emergency" while away. I'm worried that leaving the NAS on 24/7 will lead to shorter drive life due to more spin-up/downs (and also waste a bit of power).
