@inforaudio, it appears that you are with the impression that it is the popup that gives you network connection (and thus you want to make it appear on the screen). That is probably not the case. The popup is just a reaction of the system to that state (no connection).
What might be happening is that you say that you do want to keep the current connection, the system disconnects from it and so you are not able to communicate with the other devices. But I do not believe that is that acceptance of that popup that is making the connection the active (it is more like: if user accepts, do nothing, if he not accepts, disconnect)
