    So I put a computer in my car,
    it has a Wireless LAN
    When i start it up, it automatically runs an xp sychronization to my home computer (music, movies; and then online sites) over my wireless lan.
    Then my media player automatically starts up,
    I drive away from my house,
    It loses the network connection.

    Now, all the sudden, the computer has to take about 6 or so minutes to realize that its not going to get the network back. During this time MMy media player can't find any of the files because it is still looking over the network.

    Eventually i get the message:

    You are no longer connected to "computer name" you may now continue working offline.

    After that, The MEdia Player finds the synchronized files and everything is good.

    The computer basically relizes that I have lost that connection, disconnects, and then resorts to the files that have been synchronized as opposed to looking on the network. But i don't want to wait 5 minutes before it switches over to my files. In fact, i would prefer that it never even look across the network (except for during the actual synchronization)

    How can i fix this?

    edit: I tried unchecking - reconnect at login,
    but it connects during synchronization anyway,
    I need it to disconnect immediatley after synchronization.
