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
