I have hard drive setup on my network for backup and sharing purposes. On my laptop, this is setup as a shared drive X. My problem is that the local laptop tries to connect to drive X before the wireless network has a good connection, and therefore it gets an error. My question is twofold: First where, in the startup process, does the system try to make such a connection, and is there any way to delay it until the network connection is up and running?

Here's some interesting articles on the startup process and it's ordering:

I've looked into this in the past, and finally gave up on it as it required way to much time to understand enough to take advantage of it.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
