    That's a hard one to hide. It keeps changing as connection speeds change and XP sees it as a new one each time.

    If you don't want to see it, go to Network Connections, right-click the connection, and uncheck the box about showing the connection icon.

    If you have an onboard NIC you can disable it in the bios.
