I am developing window mobile application in C#.Net. This mobile window application will connect with MSSQL Server using GPRS.
Problem: My Window mobile Application needs GPRS to be connected. As GPRS is not connected by default.  I am looking for the way where I can first check status of GPRS and then if it is in disconnected mode, i can connect it automatically using code.

you can use OpenNETCF (www.opennetcf.com) library and its COnnectionManager class. Then when you made a connection, you can receive notifications about connection state changes etc.

to check the connectivity status before you first use above class, you can check something like this (vb.net sample, but easily convertible to c#):

            Try
                Dim hostName As String = System.Net.Dns.GetHostName()
                Dim hostEntry As IPHostEntry = System.Net.Dns.GetHostEntry(hostName)
                Dim hostIPAdd As String = hostEntry.AddressList(0).ToString()
                ret = hostIPAdd <> IPAddress.Parse("127.0.0.1").ToString()
            Catch
                ret = False
            End Try

Microsoft.WindowsMobile.Status.SystemState.ConnectionCount (and other similar properties) may or may not have proper value (as in case when you connected via ActiveSync to the desktop)
