    internet detection

    I am making a chat program and I wanted it to detect when I connect to the internet and when I do it will bring up my list of people. Kind of like how ICQ detects and logs you on. How is this done?

    What are you using for the communications? (WSA or WinInet ect)

    MFC or WIN32 API?
