changing ndiswrapper/wireless connection to run at startup

instead of at login. How does one do this? I've set the connection to be available to all users and connect automatically but it will only connect when someone logs in (it will persist if that person logs out though). A wired connection will connect automatically at startup as expected. Thanks!

EDIT: Sorry, just figured it out, I had my connection commands in rc.local which is apparently ran to early. I moved them to rc3.d and it works great. I am a tool.
