You can use wake on lan if your on the same network. You can open your computers to WOL over the internet but anyone will be able to turn on and off your machines unless you have a firewall setup properly. If you are trying to do this off site best bet is to buy a drac card for one of the systems. Drac's give you remote access where you can turn off and on a system remote. They also allow you to view the screen etc. Once that first system is on, remote control it and turn all the other ones on using Wake on lan.

There may be a BIOS setting that enabled the modem to "wake up" the PC

In the Dell BIOS there's an option to turn the pc on at a specific time of day, as well as other options (WOL).  

One of my clients has a device which you Telnet into - the pc's you wish to control are powered through this device and, when you login and issue commands you can switch off the power to a chosen pc.  The BIOS has to be configured to switch the power on in event of power fail, and the firewall has to be setup to route Telnet traffic to the power control device.  Crude, but very effective.
