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?
