A bash script to speak network status
Authored by: cbt on Feb 06, '06 12:24:42PM

Hello,

You can also check your route table for a default route:
if (netstat -rn | grep -q ^default) ; then
  echo "Default route exists (we're online)."
else
  echo "Default route doesn't exists (we're NOT online)."
fi

The route deamon should update the routing table when the connection is lost.
