As far as I can remember, this was introduced or has become more prominent in OS X Lion. When I open my Macbook and a known internet connection (WiFi, LAN or otherwise), I get a "You are not connected to the internet" pop-up dialog.

This is starting to get really frustrating when trying to work in places where I know I have no internet connection!

Does anyone know how to disable this pop-up?
