Hi eakkung,

since NT4 and Win95 there's an API command InternetGetConnectedState().
To use this you'll have to include 'wininet.h' and link with 'wininet.lib'.

See MSDN article ID: Q242558 for further infos on this...

hope that helps,

Use WINSOCK connect functions to give a try and from the return value you will know if computer connected to internet.
