    Not sure exactly what you're wondering, but
    here's a way to check for internet connection. Place all the fallowing in a module:

    Declare Function RasEnumConnections Lib "RasApi32.dll" Alias "RasEnumConnectionsA" (lpRasCon As Any, lpcb As Long, lpcConnections As Long) As Long
    Declare Function RasGetConnectStatus Lib "RasApi32.dll" Alias "RasGetConnectStatusA" (ByVal hRasCon As Long, lpStatus As Any) As Long

    Public Const RAS95_MaxEntryName = 256
    Public Const RAS95_MaxDeviceType = 16
    Public Const RAS95_MaxDeviceName = 32

    Public Type RASCONN95
    dwSize As Long
    hRasCon As Long
    szEntryName(RAS95_MaxEntryName) As Byte
    szDeviceType(RAS95_MaxDeviceType) As Byte
    szDeviceName(RAS95_MaxDeviceName) As Byte
    End Type
    Public Type RASCONNSTATUS95
    dwSize As Long
    RasConnState As Long
    dwError As Long
    szDeviceType(RAS95_MaxDeviceType) As Byte
    szDeviceName(RAS95_MaxDeviceName) As Byte
    End Type

    '**** Determines if there is an internet connection ****
    Function IsConnected() As Boolean
    Dim TRasCon(255) As RASCONN95
    Dim lg As Long
    Dim lpcon As Long
    Dim RetVal As Long
    Dim Tstatus As RASCONNSTATUS95

    TRasCon(0).dwSize = 412
    lg = 256 * TRasCon(0).dwSize

    RetVal = RasEnumConnections(TRasCon(0), lg, lpcon)
    If RetVal <> 0 Then
    MsgBox "ERROR"
    Exit Function
    End If

    Tstatus.dwSize = 160
    RetVal = RasGetConnectStatus(TRasCon(0).hRasCon, Tstatus)
    If Tstatus.RasConnState = &H2000 Then
    IsConnected = True
    IsConnected = False
    End If

    End Function

    Then in your code you can do:

    If IsConnected = false then
    msgbox "Not connected to internet."
    end if

    I don't know exactly how this works, I'm still trying to figure it out, someone else gave me that code in this BB about a month ago.
