Won't run on Win7, so I'm probably missing something from VBNet. Also would be nice to have a timer entry, so we can set our own delay. :)

Needs at least .net 4.6, this is included & should run on all windows 10 & 11 automatically, i targeted .net 4.6 as its compatible as far back as windows vista after manually installing it on older OS :)

Well, that's odd... I ran the .NET 4.6 updater and apparently I already have 4.7.2. "Repaired" that but it still won't run. Says I need to check whether I need x32 or x64 (I assume it's an x64 exe). Gah!

not entirely sure will try targeting 32 bit specifically, current timings are coded as follows,
IF NO INTERNET = ping (500ms timeout), wait (500ms), Ping (500ms Timeout), Run Selected Login
IF INTERNET Ping (Timeout Not Relevant), Wait (1000ms), Loop Back To Ping

I don't think anyone still uses 32-bit, do they? Not sure why mine (x64) won't run it, to be honest, but then I haven't reformatted and reinstalled for years (used to do it every 6 months) so Windows has probably accumulated a whole load of icky stuff that gets in the way...
The timing thing: I meant between checks, sorry. I have my current batch going every 2 minutes or so, which can give a fair bit of downtime if the network's rubbish but avoids getting things piled up with constant checks!

ahh its set to loop so if first test passes waits 1 second and runs the same single packet ping again :)

@aidanmacgregor also now using your script (OpenWRT service). Nice work, thank you! Though I swapped the config over to /etc/btwifi.conf since I'm not sure what owns rc.local on OpenWRT.

Hey Awesome! Glad its Working Well For You, and i was under impression nothing touched it besides from the user :)

@shuckster With the SSID of BT WiFi hotspots now changing to "EE WiFi", will the cloud-connect plugin need to be altered, and if so, what is required?

@adammcguk - Thanks for the report.

If you're already using the plugin, you can try modifying this line in this file in your local filesystem.

Change it from:

BT_SSID=${CC_WIRELESS_SSID_MATCH:-"BTWi-fi\|BTWifi-with-FON"}

To:

BT_SSID=${CC_WIRELESS_SSID_MATCH:-"EE WiFi\|BTWi-fi\|BTWifi-with-FON"}

I have a suspicion the space may cause issues, so if the above doesn't work, try:

BT_SSID=${CC_WIRELESS_SSID_MATCH:-"EE\ WiFi\|BTWi-fi\|BTWifi-with-FON"}

If you are able try this and check that it works, I'll update the plugin in the repo so others can benefit.

@shuckster I tried the 2nd way and I also changed the main config file in the cloud connect plugin, as it also references the SSID. Not sure if this was required but after doing both, it is working.
