    isn't there a way to connect to mapped network drives after network
    connection has been established and NOT before as windows attempts to
    do by default?

    Windows only attempts to do this if you let it. Its behaviour is controlled
    by issuing this command just once:

    net use /persistent:no
    or
    net use /persistent:yes

    To get rid of remembered connections, run these two commands just once:
    net use /persistent:no
    net use * /del

    To seize control over your network connections, create a logon batch file
    like this one:

    @echo off
    net use R: \\PC2\Share1
    net use S: \\PC3\Share5
