LoadMxFile issues with poor WiFi Connection

We have an ArcGIS Engine app running on a Win 7 box that is designed to work without any network connection.  All the data is local, Engine Runtime license is local, everything is local...

When the box has zero network connectivity, the application loads in about 4 seconds.  When the box is plugged into the network and has connectivity, it also starts in about 4 seconds...

However, if we've got two bars of WiFi, then it takes about a minute to load and it is hanging on LoadMxFile.  A minute might not sound terrible, but this is for emergency responders- so we'd like to see that 4 second time in all scenarios.

I've read a lot of forum posts about slow load time, and it is typically that the app is looking for a Desktop license on the network or an Engine license on the network.  This application doesn't do that...

Anyone else experienced this?  Any ideas on how to resolve it?
