If I'm away from my saved Wi-fi networks, and have the Wi-Fi radio on, I'm always getting a "Wi-Fi networks available" notification. I can dismiss the notification, but then it comes back within a few minutes.

I can't figure out how to disable that notification. I'm on a Sprint Epic 4G Touch (Sprint's variant of the Samsung Galaxy S II), recently updated to ICS.

I remember this being a simple setting in Gingerbread, but I can't find the appropriate setting in ICS.

From the Wi-Fi settings page, tap menu and choose Advanced. From the Advanced Wi-Fi settings, uncheck "Network notification". It's only for open networks, but those are the only ones that ICS on the Epic Touch 4G reports.
