Start - Control panel - Internet options - Connections. Make sure 'Never dial a connection' is checked.

Are you sending this during the windows setup or after windows and your ISP software has been installed?,if it is during setup you can cancel and do it after windows is up and all your software is installed,then you can connect to the net before you click the register button.

Don't forget that there is no obligation to register your copy of Windows XP. Activation is the only requirement for you to continue to use it.
