Check network availability

It can be done like this:

    static class Utilities {
    	public static boolean checkNetworkAvailable(Context c) {
    		// get connection manager from system service
    		ConnectivityManager manager = (ConnectivityManager) c.getSystemService(Context.CONNECTIVITY_SERVICE);
    		// get network info status
    		NetworkInfo netInfo = manager.getActiveNetworkInfo();
    		// check availability status
    		if(netInfo != null && netInfo.isAvailable()) {
    			return true;
    		return false;

However, in order to make it work, you also need to set uses-permission.

Add this line to the AndroidManifest.xml

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE"></uses-permission>

Hope you like it!
