Automatically re-connect mapped drives?

Hey guys. I have a PC with a 802.11 PCI card. Long story short, when Windows boots, it attempts to mount my mapped drives before my PCI card connects to my network. How can I prevent this? If I can't "re-order" the startup items, how can I automatically repair the connection to the mapped drives once network communications are established?

Only if you have the shares password protected some how. Otherwise the batch script will create the mappings using your logon credentials.

I'm sure it is possible to use gpedit.msc to make windows wait until the network has been initialised before logging in.....

gpedit.msc ---> Administrative templates --> System --> Logon
then change the "Always wait for the network at computer startup" to Enabled.

When I login with no network connection (either wifi or I haven't enabled my nic yet) the drives simply show as disconnected. When I try to access them and the network is available they connect. I still get the little balloon about not being able to reconnect network drives but I ignore it.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
