taskbar toolbar problems

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.help_and_support (More info?)

I have a toolbar on my taskbar that is mapped to a network drive. This allows
me to access VNC shortcuts along with other SAs. When I disable my wireless
network connection and enable my local area network connection, the taskbar
disappears and does not re-appear until I open the toolbar again by right
clicking on the taskbar then going to toolbars->new toolbar. Is there any way
to have this toolbar stay on reguardless of my network connection status, or
is there a shortcut I can place on my desktop that will simply allow me to
double click it to re-load the toolbar?

    I would think only a script or bat file would reactivate the share.

    net use z: \\machine\folder

    This still didn't work, the toolbar stays open but once the network
    connection is gone, all the files that were in it disappear. Any other ideas?
