Internet Availability Check

#1

Hi
How can I check if the internet is up and working. I used https://docs.nativescript.org/cookbook/connectivity but it says connected to wifi even when the wifi is on but internet is disconnected. I understand that this basically checks why type of connection the mobile has but that is not something I am looking for. I seaarched but couldnt find it? Can you please help?
Thanks,
Rakesh

Try using the http module to fetch a resource and check the status of the response.
