Can I Delay reconnecting Network Drives?

as per the title: i have a mapped drive, a USB stick attached to my router, but i have the problem of Win 7 trying to reconnect the drive on boot before the wifi is established; is there any way of delaying that reconnection so it happens after the wifi link is established, or to set up an automatic retry if the first attempt fails?
