Default Connect before login

Is there a software that can allow my wireless card to connect to my home network before I login (Pre-login connect)? I have a ZyXEL G-302v2 802.11b/g Wireless PCI Adapter and I use the Windows Classic Login Box.

Default Re: Connect before login

network connections should start as services...

you could try to force the connection by having a service that acceses the internet, (perhaps a ping of something) that starts before logon, and have the connecion settings set to allow automatic dial up, or conncet when requested, (i forget exactly what it's called).

Default Re: Connect before login

I forgot to add that the ZyXel WLAN utility needs to start so that it can connect... I use the WPA2 PSK authentication and i believe windows xp doesnt fully support WPA2 (heard that it has problems still). Is there a way to start the wlan utility before login? Ive heard of running applications as services. Will it work?
