Developer's Description

With this app, you can easily monitor the internet connection status.

With this app, you can easily monitor the internet connection status. An audible alert sounds when the connection is lost. A "connection event log", is generated. You can export the log, to print-out or email.

The app attempts to open a connection to the internet, at a scheduled interval (1, 2, 5, 10, 15, 30, 60 minutes).

Sooner or later, everyone experiences connection issues with their internet provider. It's very frustrating, trying to explain to Internet Providers, just how often your internet connection is dropping.

When the connection status changes, from "found" to "lost, or "lost" to "found", then a "heads up" notification is displayed, and an alert is played (notifications and alerts are optional). Repeating alarm-style alerts can be used to alert continuously.

All "connection events" are logged to a spreadsheet-style csv file, with each new status, and the elapsed time since the connection was lost or found.

A "WiFi Alert" option is provided, so you can observe any lost connections related to losing the WiFi network. Useful when you want to be alerted when you go out-of-range of your home WiFi.

IMPORTANT PHONE SETTINGS INFO !

WiFi Smart network switch setting for phones:

When using a phone to use this app, to test the internet connection, this advanced WiFi option should be disabled (Android Settings). Most phones have an advanced WiFi setting to automatically switch to the phone's Mobile Network (disabled by default).

When the WiFi connection is strong, but the internet connection is lost, then the phone will hand-off to the Mobile Network. Under normal use of the phone, with this setting enabled, users could unknowingly use mobile data (for example, when streaming YouTube), and be subject to fees from their wireless provider.

This advanced WiFi setting has different names on various phone models:

- Smart Network switch

- Auto network switch

- Avoid bad Wi-Fi connections

- Switch to mobile data automatically
