GPO "Wait for network" Windows 2008 using wireless

I have a laptop running Windows 7 Pro connecting via wireless.  I know that when I had a Windows 2003 domain that you could set the machine policy to wait until a network connection before logging on.  I had a laptop running xp that connected wireless.  It would pause, connect, then login to the network.  I now have a Windows 2008 AD and I am running Windows 7 on the laptop.  I have this same setting enabled in AD but the laptop is logging into windows before the wireless has connected.  I need to know what settings in my GPO that i need to set to guarantee that the laptop will wait until it is connected before logging into windows.  Any help would be appreciated.

I might set it to a little less than 60sec but that will fix my issue.
