Can I synchronize only when wired, not wireless?

My Dell D520 is currently configured to run mobsync.exe /logon when Windows boots. It syncs offline files in my 'My Documents' space on the network and the laptop. It also seems to enable connection to other the other mapped network drives and network printers which don't connect until this has run. However, I would only like to do this when I boot connected to the wired network at work but not my wireless network at home. Is this possible?

Thanks for any advice offered!

I don't believe it is possible to configure a program to differentiate between a "wired" and a "wireless" connection to the network.

A "wireless" connection emulates a "wired" ethernet connection.

Got round this using Dell Quickset application which canbe configured to run apps etc depending on profile detected (wired/wireless). Added a line pointing to a .bat file I created to run the sync program command, although I have to click Synchronise when it fires up when connected.
