I am only too aware of that, and in the domain always ensure it is set 
in Group policy to wait for the network.

However XP Home edition can't join a domain, and I haven't found an 
equivalent registry setting to make it start the wireless before 
logging in. The problem is not that the wireless is slow to start - 
you can leave the computer at the login window for an hour, and the 
wireless still hasn't started. It waits for someone to login before it 
tries to connect.
