    No internet connection detected?

    Okay, I tried the five second search and didn't find anything definitive.

    I'm using a D-Link EV-DO router with my Verizon Broadband card for internet at the moment. I have the card hooked up to an external antenna, and checking the router, I get good signal.

    When CF starts up, the light that shows internet connectivity is green, and all the internet functions work. After a while, however, it turns red, and simply refuses to believe there's an active internet connection.

    Closing CF and opening IE, I can verify that the connection is working.

    How do you force CF into realizing the connection is there?

    I use a Win32 method to detect internet... I can look to add an override to allow you to say it always has a connection...

    It should detect any DUN or Network adapter with an IP and say there is a connection... It does not actual go out and hit the internet... I tried this at one point but the performance from a constant multi second check on the internet was very bad...

    I have two other internet related issues I plan to look into after this release...

    Yeah, somethings making it act weird and i'm not sure what. An override would be wonderful, like something to tell if it you have a DUN or a 'LAN' connection.

    I'll see if I can double-check that the system isn't somehow 'dropping' the IP after a few minutes and reacquiring it. I have no idea WHY it would do that, but it's the only thing I can think that might be happening with my hardware.

    The only other thought I have is that since I have a firewire card it might be detecting a lack of true IP on the 1394 adapter? I'll have to see if disabling that will clear up the problem..

    Hey I got a (similar) Internet connection issue as well.

    CF1.12 was working fine, I was able to get my weather updates and traffic and even surf the web etc. Thursday however, i changed the resolution on my screen and now centrafuse is unable to access the internet. I know...seemingly unrelated but that is the only thing I did. If I exit CF and I fire up Firefox, I can surf to the end of the internet. We are not talking firewalls either because I do not have one enabled for the car pc. Any thoughts ? Internet connection in Centrafuse simply strangely died one day after working like a champ.

    And issue with dropping the connection and reaquiring it either.
