Windows 7: After connecting to a network, how to stop windows searching for net?

After connecting to a network, how to stop windows searching for net?

Hey people,

---Background---

So essentially i've built a piece of hardware which is then using a microcontroller to convert analog signals to digital and stream them to constantly over it's own network to whatever is connected. This data is then processed in a program I have written and corresponding actions are taken based on the value of the incoming data.

--- ---
The problem i'm having is that 7 constantly checks the micro controllers network for an internet connection thus wasting cpu usage and also cutting out sporadically and frequently whilst it searches for an internet connection and identifies the network. As a result the i'm receiving exceptions in my program at run time as the value of the supposedly transferred data is sometimes null.

'Breath'. Therefore is there anyway of disabling this constant searching for internet? Is there a way to just get windows to accept the network for what it is and happily plod along?

Thanks

Ollie

Has improved it but i'm still getting data loss when it switches between private unknown network and identifying. Any more I can do?

I guess I could always use a linksys style approach use that as a personal private network and tack the micro controller onto it's network instead of using it's own ad-hoc? That might still have a problem but i'm thinking the linksys would be more easily identified by windows? Not really sure

Thanks

Does the machine have a static IP address? Windows will often identify a network as unidentified if it doesn't receive a response from the DHCP server.
