How To Stop "Network Connection" Dialog From Interrupting Br

I have defined a network connection of type L2TP IPSec VPN that I use when connecting to a client's network. I wish to use it only when I deliberately select it.

However, now while I'm surfing a Network Connections dialog box pops up frequently (sometimes more than once on a web page), interrupting the loading of the page until I dismiss the dialog. Apparently this happens when there is even a fairly minor latency in response to any request for an element of a page.

With Firefox this is a big annoyance, as I have to dismiss the dialog frequently. With IE it's a really huge major annoyance, because dismissing IE's equivalent dialog puts IE into offline mode, so I have to put it back online each time as well.

I've searched in vain for a setting that would let me specify that my Internet connection should not try to use the VPN connection unless I say so. (I'm on Win XP Media Center Edition.) Can anyone help?
