This code will check if you have an open connection :)

 HttpWebRequest req;
            HttpWebResponse resp;
            try
            {
                req = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create("http://www.google.com");
                resp = (HttpWebResponse)req.GetResponse();

                if (resp.StatusCode.ToString().Equals("OK"))
                {
                    MessageBox.Show("its connected.");
                }
                else
                {
                    MessageBox.Show("its not connected.");
                }
            }
            catch (Exception exc)
            {
                MessageBox.Show("Exception");
            }
