Having the network cable plugged in implies consent. If you don't want
you computer connecting to a network, then don't plug it in. I have
lived in areas of limited and expensive bandwidth, and even for a
desktop with the network cable under the desk, it seemed common sense
that so long as it was plugged in, something would try to connect.
