excel 2010 vba:


'Please check description of your VPN Connection by running command "ipconfig /all" on command-line.

    
    ' NO CELL CARD...wireless at home...vpn description
    If (InStr(objItem.Description, "AnyConnect")) Then
     IsVPNConnected = objItem.IPEnabled
    End If

  ''Branch Wireless  works
   If (InStr(objItem.Description, "Centrino")) Then
     IsVPNConnected = objItem.IPEnabled
    End If


  'Branch Ethernet hardwired works
   If (InStr(objItem.Description, "Gigabit")) Then
     IsVPNConnected = objItem.IPEnabled
    End If
  

   If (IsVPNConnected) Then
    IsVPNConnected = MsgBox("I am Connected to VPN.")
    GoTo LINE20
    
    
   Else
    IsVPNConnected = MsgBox("I am Not Connected to VPN.")
   GoTo LINE10
   
   End If

Open in new window




Just lookin to clean this if.then... code up.

Is there a better way to check for each connection ?

if any of these are true then...
 
    ' NO CELL CARD...wireless at home...vpn description
    If (InStr(objItem.Description, "AnyConnect")) Then
     IsVPNConnected = objItem.IPEnabled
    End If

  ''Branch Wireless  works
   If (InStr(objItem.Description, "Centrino")) Then
     IsVPNConnected = objItem.IPEnabled
    End If


  'Branch Ethernet hardwired works
   If (InStr(objItem.Description, "Gigabit")) Then
     IsVPNConnected = objItem.IPEnabled
    End If


 If (IsVPNConnected) Then
    IsVPNConnected = MsgBox("I am Connected to VPN.")
    GoTo LINE20
   
   
   Else
    IsVPNConnected = MsgBox("I am Not Connected to VPN.")
   GoTo LINE10
