Are you on dial up i know isp send out a ping every now and then that is why people on 24/7 notice every few hours or so they lose the connection if they have a firewall, the ping they send is just to make sure you are connected but due to firewalls blocking the ping the isp disconnects. Apart from those pings i dont know

ignore them. If you find such notifications irritating or worrying why don't you disable the notifications in your software. We are all being pinged regularly, as Powerless says.
