    detecting removed network cable?

    Hello

    I hope someone can help me. So far I always used KeepAlive to detect if my socket connection is ok or lost. Now I want to write a small program in C++ for windows which only displays a list of my current network cards and is the cable is plugged in or not. Similar to the list in the settings from Windows itself.

    Is there any way how I can get notified about the network state of my cards without having a socket connection to somewhere?

    Uninstall the network adapter in Device Manager and restart Windows.

    Alternatively or additionally, find a later driver for the network adapter (probably part of a multi function chipset) at Gigabyte site.

    Also see if there's a newer BIOS for your motherboard.
