    You need to use the InternetGetConnectedState API, here is a small example I have which I porbably downloaded a long time ago from someone somewhere, or made myself - Honestly, I cannot remember :

    Option Explicit
    Private Declare Function InternetGetConnectedState Lib "wininet" (ByRef dwflags As Long, _
    ByVal dwReserved As Long) As Long
    Private Const CONNECT_LAN As Long = &H2
    Private Const CONNECT_MODEM As Long = &H1
    Private Const CONNECT_PROXY As Long = &H4
    Private Const CONNECT_OFFLINE As Long = &H20
    Private Const CONNECT_CONFIGURED As Long = &H40
    Public Function IsWebConnected(Optional ByRef ConnType As String) As Boolean
    Dim dwflags As Long
    Dim WebTest As Boolean
    ConnType = ""
    WebTest = InternetGetConnectedState(dwflags, 0&)
    Select Case WebTest
    Case dwflags And CONNECT_LAN: ConnType = "LAN"
    Case dwflags And CONNECT_MODEM: ConnType = "Modem"
    Case dwflags And CONNECT_PROXY: ConnType = "Proxy"
    Case dwflags And CONNECT_OFFLINE: ConnType = "Offline"
    Case dwflags And CONNECT_CONFIGURED: ConnType = "Configured"
    End Select
    IsWebConnected = WebTest
    End Function
    Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim msg As String
    If IsWebConnected(msg) Then
    msg = "You are connected to the Internet via: " & msg
    msg = "You are not connected to the Internet."
    End If
    MsgBox msg, vbOKOnly, "Internet Connection Status"
    End Sub
