I've got my raspi configured for DHCP on eth0 and wlan0. When eth0 is disconnected (which is the default), start time is very slow before I can ssh to the pi.

The time is spent with DHCPDISCOVER actions on eth0 which have to fail. Is there any chance to either change order (wlan0 before eth0) or make this a parallel process in order to speedup system start?

    This would depend on your network, you probably could just set up for a static IP so It doesn't need to query the network as much (apparently you may have to use these instructions with new Raspbian images, using /etc/network/interfaces may still be possible)
