Given that people often have trouble getting through their wi-fi router to the open Internet, we always ping a status page on our server to make sure we're good to go. If the connection times out, we pop an alert insturcting the user to check network settings.
Problem is.. that timeout can be fairly long. Is there any way to configure how long the BlackBerry will wait before returning a timeout error? For that matter, does BlackBerry have any easy way to check that access to the Internet is possible? (As opposed to using just CoverageInfo.isOutOfCoverage() to make sure wireless is up or not.)
Also, is there a way to determine throughput of any particular connection?
