Default WindowsXP prompting with network connections

We have a laptop user that when he is working offline, WindowsXP will pop-up a dialogue displaying the available network connection options. Is there anyway to turn this off?

Forget about it...just click the box that says "work offline"...you have invested all of 1 second!! Once you are "reconnected" the box just goes away.
