Stating an Internet Connection from withing the application (Compact Framework).

Im trying to find information on Stating an Internet Connection from withing the application.
I have looked all over the web for it, What I want to do is start an already existing Internet Connection from withing my application, like Internet Explorer does that when your not connected it pops up the Connection dialog.

I will be using the VisualBasic.Net/Compact Framework for this, if anybody has a link, code or even a hint it would be greatlly appreciated.

Thanks you!

It looks like you need to check if the user is connected to the internet.

Try this

Imports System.Runtime.InteropServices

<DllImport("wininet.dll")> _
    Public Function InternetGetConnectedState( _
        ByVal lpdwFlags As Integer, ByVal res As Integer) As Boolean
End Function

Public Function InternetConnectionExists() As Boolean
    ' Determines if there is a connection to the Internet.
    ' Note that InternetGetConnectedState cannot be considered
    ' 100% reliable. An issue can occur if an internet connection
    ' has never been configured, the function may return true, even
    ' though there is no internet connection.
    '

    Dim e As Integer = 0
    Dim ret As Boolean = InternetGetConnectedState(e, 0)

    Return ret

End Function
