Net use batch file on wireless clients

Hi folks,

I have recently configured some wireless clients on a network. They have a few mapped network drives to a server and two net use lpt2+3 redirections. eg.

net use S: \\server\share /y
net use lpt2 \\server\printer /y

I know I can make all of these maps persistent but maps can sometimes just drop out for no reason ( I know from experience) , so I have put them in a batch file in the startup folder.

The problem I have got is that because the connection is wireless and takes 5 - 10 seconds to load(from when the desktop first loads) the batch file tries to connect the maps before the Wifi connection has been established - and obviously fails.

HEEELP

BTW. the clients are XP Pro/ W2k Pro and are in a basic workgroup

thanks
Matt
