If you are using IE you can go to the File menu and click Work Offline if you don't want to connect and are just viewing a web page. If you keep getting the popup while online go to Control Panel>Dial Up Networking and highlight your connection icon. Go to settings and pick Never dial a conection. Or in IE go to Tools>Internet Options>Connections tab and select it there.
