I would like to add code to my application to test whether there is an active internet connection or not.
My application does some internet related functionality and I want to be sure that there is a connection prior to executing this functionality.

I can find lots of routines...but which is the best method?

HI,

Perform a ping to test connectivity.

ping microsoft.com

I used it once... Although it was in VB.

Hope this is useful.

Cheers,
