How to check the Internet connection status?

Post by AutomationTester » Mon Feb 11, 2013 1:33 pm

Hai,

Can you tell me, how to check the internet connection status(Active or inactive) through code?
Code should be in C#.

Thanks and Regards

Use following code
public static bool HasConnection()
{
    try
    {
        System.Net.IPHostEntry i = System.Net.Dns.GetHostEntry("www.google.com");
        return true;
    }
    catch
    {
        return false;
    }
}
FYI, it just took about 30 seconds to find this part of code using Google.
