Internet disconnectivity is one of the major issues faced by most of the internet users.
It will be very irritating to see the internet going down while doing something very important. For instance imagine the net going down while booking a Train or Flight Ticket Online. So it’s always better to see the Internet connectivity before doing any important stuff or transaction online.
Continuously Monitor the Internet Connection
Luckily we have the Ping Command which itself can be used to Monitor the Internet Connectivity. Let’s see how to Monitor the Internet Connectivity using the Ping Command:
- Go to Start -> Run Menu
- Type Command and Press Enter (This step can be ignored if required)
- Type Ping 126.96.36.199 -t (188.8.131.52 is the Google’s DNS server and -t is used to run this task continuously). This command will show the status of Internet Connectivity continuously
- This task can be stopped by pressing Control + C
This command will just show the status of the Internet Connectivity but won’t track down the number of instance Internet went down within a particular duration. If we want to track the same then you can use the utility called “Internet Connectivity Monitor”
Internet Connectivity Monitor will show the status of the Internet Connectivity and also will track the number of instance the Internet went down within a particular duration.
