False Return with PING

3 posts in this topic

Has anyone came up with a way to verify that the network cable is plugged in? When I use PING to check an IP Address it works great if I have a valid IP Address. If I unplug my network cable and disable wireless though it returns a false positive.

Are you sure you're not pinging the loopback (127.0.0.1) or some static IP and you have custom mapping for?
