Snaked Net Check - Get rid of disconnection problems in Windows 7

Snaked Net Check is a useful application we have created in order to avoid disconnection problems in Windows 7. Windows 7 network connection manager suffers from some important issues. While it will most likely attempt to reconnect in case you lose the connection to your internet router, it would not repair the connection in case it enters limited access mode. This can be very frustrating when you need the computer to stay online and work unattended.  So, Snaked Net Check will be very useful to you in case you are trapped in the following scenario:

1. Your Windows 7 computer connects to the internet through a router using an ethernet or wifi network adapter.

2. Immediately or after some time the connection fails or enters limited access mode for no valid reason.

3. The internet connectivity is lost but Windows does not automatically repair the connection.

4. You need to manually run the Windows Network Diagnostics every time the connection fails in order to repair it.

To tell you the truth I was facing the same problems until I'd had enough.. because I used to leave the computer unattended in order to download some large files or torrents and the connection was failing all the time leaving the computer offline and the files corrupted. The worst thing about it is that Windows 7 does not repair the connection automatically. It requires the user's attention.. so the computer can not stay securely online unattended.

So I decided to create an application that actually does that for me and repairs the internet connectivity in case it's lost for some specified time. The application was developed in Visual C# 2008 Express Edition and is called "Snaked Net Check". It is currently in beta stage because there still are some bugs coming up although it does the job pretty well. I will improve it and resolve any issues that appear during this testing. Latest version is Stable 1.1 and it's tested enough to work fine. It is licensed under GNU Lesser Licence as Freeware and you can download it through here:
