How to connect to an SSID non-broadcast network faster

I have a network and have turned off the SSID broadcast feature of my wireless Router.
I have a laptop with a built-in wireless NIC and it connects to that wireless network automatically, however, it usually takes a minute to do so, and since SSID is not broadcast I can't go to "View Available Wireless Networks" and simply connect to it faster, is there a timer for this somewhere or a way to speed it up when I turn on my laptop's wireless NIC within range of the wireless router?

no timer that im aware of.. just make sure it is the first network it trys to connect to- if you dont need the others, remove the extra ones....
