wireless connection

Im hoping someone may have some suggestions to this little problem :

I have an app that runs full screen and uses a wireless connection and is
executed from the startup. the problem is that as soon as the app starts it
cant connect to the wifi, even of I leave the code in a loop checking for
the connection it still doesnt find it. Its as if the app runs before the
wifi is ready.

To combat this I add a splash screen , but the samething happens. Strangly
enought thou, as soon as you end the app and re start it , it finds the
wireless connection start away.

Has anyone ever seen a problem like this ? or have a solution ?

Thanks

I have not tried it out, but does a sleep for a predefined time help?

I know that the networking classes take sometime to actually find if you are
online etc, because it may take sometime for the OS to get an IP from the
DHCP server etc.
