Default Program Boot Order?

Is there a way to change what programs boot when i log on? Id like to have my Linksys wireless reciever be one of the 1st items to run. Some times it starts first, and some times its one of the last.

THe reason i want it to start first, is because i have alot of programs that need to connect to servers the moment they come on line (Aim, Steam, Weather program, and a few others). If they run before the drivers load, or w.e it is that controlls it, my screen gets full of error mesages and it slows my computer down ALOT.
