I am trying to figure out a simple “ping” call for wifi functionality, similar to opening the command prompt and typing “ping www.google.com”. I will have it debug.print the results. I have tried all sorts of code, httprequest, send request, basically everything I could find on the internet, most of which appears to apply to 4.2 and earlier and I can not get anything to work.
I am connected to my home network and I am assigned an IP, gateway and subnet.
Is there any documentation that explains the .netmf 4.3 wifi/network functions, i.e. webserver, client, helper, request, response, etc? I have tried to look through the object browser and have been surfing for quite a few hours, it just seems like most of the documentation is for 4.2 and earlier.
Really what I am after is being able to update my system clock from an internet server. There are some examples on the web, but again the code is not quite transferring over. So i figure a simple ping routine should be useful for checking connectivity to the web.
Thank you for any help and sorry for the long winded question,
