More information:
This article describes an easy approach to building two controls used to monitor the status of an internet connection and provide the user with some indication of that status. Within the attached project, there are two controls, one shows the user what the connection type is and whether or not the machine is connected or offline, the other one is used to show some indication of the quality of the connection in terms of whether or not the connection is good, intermittent, or offline.
