Turn off Wireless Network Connection Notification Balloon

A balloon keeps popping up from my system tray that states a wireless network is available or unavailable.  Very annoying.  I must be near an access point.  How do I turn the notification off?  I tried right clicking on the system tray and going to properties, customize.  If choose to always hide the wireless network connection and apply it.  The change doesn't stick.

Help.

try the properties of the taskbar, right click it/props and now click on customise if shown, play with settings in there.

Within the Advanced settings of your Wirless Network Connections, you probably have a "default" wireless network selection.  Edit the properties of this, specifically unchecking the box that says to connect when this network is in range.  This will prevent your wireless card from responding back to an AP that is in range, hence the popup will not happen.  You will also not connect to that network unless you specifically want to.
