VBS Script to map NAS network smb drives over specific SSID wifi homenets (non GPO script)

I recently posted this script on usenet because some many people now
have NAS storage devices accessible via there home wifi networks.

This script should help out the people with the question on how to mount a network attached storage device (like my coolmax NAS) to there windows profile during windows boot.

This vbs works by utilizing the wmi and cimv2 mappings to access the the MSNdis_80211_Configuration and the Win32_NetworkAdapter references.

You need to have the local WMI service enabled for this to work.

FYI:This has been tested under Windows XP.
