Simple trick to monitor the internet connection continuously

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.

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 8.8.8.8 -t (8.8.8.8 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
