How can I suppress the irritating popup message "Internet Connection is now connected" that shows repeatedly over to the right of my taskbar (which is set to autohide)? My configuration is Windows XP SP2 connected via LinkSys router to a broadband (always on) cable ISP.

I was hoping that there was a way to keep the icon but suppress the message.

cwkhang, thanks but it didn't seem to have the desired effect. As soon as I enabled the icon, I got a popup.

cwkhang, that value was already set in my registry and I'm still getting the popup. Thanks for the effort, but there must be something else at play here.
