I have an old Toshiba Satellite laptop that I installed 13.04 on for my kids to play on. Normally boot time isn't an issue unless the ETH isn't connected and it falls back to WiFi.
The way I have it setup currently, during the boot, it loads network before running mount so that network shares are mounted by Automount during the boot sequence.
The problem is that if the eth isn't connected, I have to wait for the desktop to come up and the WiFi to connect, then manually run sudo mount -a to get the NFS shares mounted from my internal server.
Is there a means by which I can get the WiFi to load, authenticate the WPA key and connect the shares for Automount on boot the way the ethernet does?
