Code for checking Internet connection is not working properly


I am developing an app in which I need to check if an internet connection is available or not. The code I have written seems to handle all cases but it is not working in my emulator. My code:

public boolean hasConnection() { ConnectivityManager cm = (ConnectivityManager) getSystemService(Context.CONNECTIVITY_SERVICE); NetworkInfo wifiNetwork = cm .getNetworkInfo(ConnectivityManager.TYPE_WIFI); if (wifiNetwork != null && wifiNetwork.isConnected()) { return true; } NetworkInfo mobileNetwork = cm .getNetworkInfo(ConnectivityManager.TYPE_MOBILE); if (mobileNetwork != null && mobileNetwork.isConnected()) { return true; } NetworkInfo activeNetwork = cm.getActiveNetworkInfo(); if (activeNetwork != null && activeNetwork.isConnected()) { return true; } return false; }

The problem is that it is never returning false whether the internet connection is available or not, both in a device and in my emulator. But it is working well if the device is connected with wifi connection. What problem with that snippet?


Try this method.

private boolean IsNetworkAvailable() { ConnectivityManager mConnectivityManager = (ConnectivityManager) getSystemService(Context.CONNECTIVITY_SERVICE); NetworkInfo mActiveNetworkInfo = mConnectivityManager.getActiveNetworkInfo(); return mActiveNetworkInfo != null && mActiveNetworkInfo.isConnected(); }

You will also need:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE" />
