Launch Application when connecting wireless

    In a corporate environement I have successfully configured a wireless
    connection on Windows XP, using the Windows software. If I login via wireless
    it processes the login script and I get all my mapped drives. If I login to
    my laptop (out of range of the wireless connection) using cached credentials
    I obviously will not run the login script so no mapped drives. When I move
    within range (without logging out or rebooting) the wireless connection is
    established but I have no mapped. Is there some way to auto launch an
    application (or login script) when establishing a wireless connection?

    Thanks

    Not without your logging out & back in. You're logged in with cached
    credentials, not live, so nothing can be 'pushed' to your computer. You
    could put a shortcut to the login script on your desktop. though.
