Windows 7: Connecting to network before signing in to local machine

Connecting to network before signing in to local machine

Hello,
I have just removed my wifi card an gone for a pair of powerline adapters to connect my pc to the router.
With my wireless card, the computer would connect to the network before clicking on my user icon on pc boot up. This would allow me to access shared files use remote desktop connection etc. without logging in.
Now with my Ethernet powerline adapters, I need to click on my user icon on the signin screen before the computer connects to the network.
Is there any way to make it connect to the network without me having to click on the user icon to sign in?
