I need to know of an dial-up connection the instance it is invoked.  How do I do this from VB?  The reason - it needs to fire an event.

I had a look at that - all it does is to detect which Dial-up connections are configured on your system, but can not detect when one of them are active.  It has a function called 'ActiveConnection' which detects if there is an active Internet connection (but that is not helping me at all).

Thanks anyway.  Any other suggestions?
