Initializing Internet connection with cellcore.dll

I have a windows mobile app that initializes the internet connection on-demand using cellcore.dll, however, from what I know, the ConnectionManager API is a Windows Mobile only API, so I am curious if there is a more platform neutral way of doing it. By platform neutral, I mean all Microsoft CE based and even Win32 desktop. We have several build targets with conditional code for each platform to popup the particular platform's WiFi manager, and I just want to make sure this conditional code is necessary. The goal is to popup the dialer dialog or on a smartphone, to auto-dial the carrier data connection.

Thanks in advance.

probably you could use RAS API, perhaps this would pass as "more platform neutral" :)

Hi alex, thanks for the article, I will look closer at this. Since I won't be able to report back within a reasonable time frame I will close the question, since this is the sort of info I was looking for in any case.

I may or may not use the RAS api, but thanks for the relevant information.
