Default My computer keeps trying to use my BB modem connection when browsing on wifi

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, all. Not sure where to post this, so I put it here. Hopefully it will get moved to the proper place if this isn't it.

So, I've got my Pearl set up as a modem on my winXP pro laptop, but I also use regular wi fi. If I'm on wifi, sometimes when browsing a page, particularly one that makes Database hits on the back end, my blackberry Dialer will pop up (see attached image).

It's easy to delete the dialer from the start -> Connect to -> BB phone as modem, but I don't want to have to set it up every time I want to connect.

How can I get the BB dialer to stay dormant if I have another connection going?

Thanks,
Jeff
