Can a router be configured to automatically connect to the Internet even when the server is off?
A router can be programmed so that it starts a connection automatically whenever it sees interesting traffic. Interesting traffic is what an administrator (in this case, you) would define using access lists.

Until you define the traffic correctly you can avoid security breaches or some unauthorized persons accessing your connection.
