Win XP "Wireless connected" balloons

Win XP gives me a "Wireless connected" balloon on the taskbar whenever I

wake up my laptop.  I'm pretty sure it happens when the screensaver is

running too (in this case the computer isn't hibernating or suspended).

I assume the balloon is raised whenever the wireless link is

disconnected and reconnected?  This must mean that the link is broken

for some reason when I leave my laptop...



Is this normal?



Is there a way of turning off this balloon?



Is there a log file in the Linksys router showing connect /

disconnect?

Re: Win XP "Wireless connected" balloons
It is probably in Power saving mode, it goes to sleep to preserve the
battery. You can turn it off in the driver configuration.
System------device manager------network adapters-----select adapter and view
