I have a Network card in the machine that I am not ready to configure. I
will at some point but not right now. I'd like to remove the nag in the
System Tray telling me "A Network Cable is Unplugged." I know it is and
that is what I want. I tried to go into Network connections looking to
uncheck a checkbox to get rid of it but the box that is there to show
Connection when connected is unchecked. How do I remove this nag in the
System Tray? I'd like not change any of the hardware. Thanks.

If you're not using it you can disable the hardware.

Go back into network connections. Right click on the network device and
select disable.
