Remove/disable Task Bar notification for Wireless Connect
I recently purchased a new laptop w/ XP. Everytime I start up, I get a pop up from the task bar at bottom of screen saying: Wireless Network Connection is not Connected ... Wireless network unavailable.
The startup process doesn't complete until I click "close" on this notification.
I am not a subscriber to any wireless service and want to disable this pop up. It's become a nusiance since I have to be alert to click "close" after it pops up or start up is stopped at this point.
I think but am not sure if you disable the wireless connection by right clicking the wireless icon in the sys tray and click "Disable". This, i think should stop the "Wireless network is not connected" message from coming up.
In the control panel open the network connections applet. Right click on the wireless connection>properties and uncheck the line that says "notify me when this connection has limited or no connectivity". Another alternative would be to disable the wireless network adapter in device manager. There's really no sense to having it load when you aren't using it anyway.
