Prevent wireless connection before logon

I have used Intel's PROSet Wireless wireless network connection software which didn't attempt to connect to wireless access points until you had logged on.  I'm now using Window's wireless networking component and suspect that it is connecting prior to logon.  If that is correct how do I stop it?

Thanks

On XP the connection happens after logon.  On Vista it can be configured either way.
