HI:

I want a way to delay the startup of applications that rely on a
wireless connection, so they do not sit in limbo waiting for
wireless to become active. Is there a way to change the order
that applications start up?

I am running Windows XP Home SP2, fully patched. I have a home
network of 5 laptops connecting to a wireless Linksys router.

Let me know if you need any other info.

regards and thanks

Dan Myers

This program says it can do what you want.  Never tried it, so I don't know how well (or even if) it works:

you could try putting some apps in the registry location to run on startup and put some shortcuts in the startmenu>programs>startup and note what list starts-up first
