For reasons that are not relevant to my questions, my employer makes us all take our laptops home every night. So every morning we have to put our laptops on the docking station and boot up.
Fortunately, the PCs boot up relatively quickly, but all of our work (documentation, application, email, ftp) is all on the network. For some reason the network adapters (ethernet and wireless) are the very last things to load.
First of all, does everything startup right away, but it just take a long time to bring the adapters up? Or are they serial and they are just the last in the line?
If they are last in line, is there someway to put them at the beginning of the line so I’m not stuck staring at my screen waiting for them to come up?
We use Lenovo laptops with Win XP Pro installed.
