Desktop shortcuts disappear

I have a laptop in my network with Windows 7 Professional that has several shortcuts to shared folders in the network and if it is working in the network works fine but if the laptop is connected to a different network the desktop shortcuts dissapear and I have to add it again and so on, what can I do to fix it?

if you just want icons to appear then i would place the network shortcuts in a folder like mydocuments/networkworkshortcuts... then for each shortcut in that folder, right click it and select "send to desktop"... essentially creating a shortcut to a shortcut...

but it should keep a placeholder (so to speak) on your desktop... is that what you're after i take it?...

Under Folder Options I think you need to uncheck "Hide empty connections". You do this through Windows Explorer->Organize->Folder Options->View
