It’s an application I made for my comfort. All it does is ping the random site and check the ping for it. What is cool about it, is the fact that it shows the ping in a nice, simple way on your system tray. It looks similar to wireless connection icon so you are always aware of your internet connection stability.
I also added second functionality to it: in a way I described in this note, it changes your connection from cable to wireless if needed. I always assume that cable connection is more stable so the app always change the connection to the one that goes by cable. If it’s not possible at the moment, it changes connetion to wireless.
It requires .NET 3.5 to run.
You would probably want this app to run as soon as you log in to your system but because of the second functionality it needs admin rights to run it, so I will post the way to achieve it in the next note 🙂
