802.1x authentication balloon goes away too fast

Hi, we are implementing a solution with 802.1x authentication on our wired network.
Whenever you plug your network cable into an outlet, you have to authenticate.
The problem is that Windows (7) will only show the requirement for more information (namely the authentication parameters) for a brief time (6-8 seconds).

Is there a way to make this balloon stick/persistent?

It helps, but unfortunately doesn't solve the problem.
I was able to set this value to a staggering 10 000 000 000, but it you start oving your mouse around, the notification/balloon will stil go away.

An even better solution than having the notification/balloon stay persistent, would be if it was possible to have Windows (7 and XP) automatically display the Authentication box for supplying the user credentials (see attached picture).

That way the user would not be in any doubt as to what to do :-)

It actually only gets hidden
when you access the arrow you can see all the hidden icons
You could set the taskbar to unhide these r/click and properties., or drag the network connections to the taskbar windows 7.Then it is static.
Not sure other than this
