  • Hi,

    For WP 8.1 RT app, please consider using Windows.Networking.Connectivity.NetworkInformation class, it has NetworkStatusChanged event which will occur when the network status changes for a connection: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/windows.networking.connectivity.networkinformation.networkstatuschanged.aspx

    Here is my sample:

    <TextBlock x:Name="tb1" FontSize="40" Text="NULL" />

    public MainPage()
                this.NavigationCacheMode = NavigationCacheMode.Required;
                NetworkInformation.NetworkStatusChanged += NetworkInformation_NetworkStatusChanged;
    async void NetworkInformation_NetworkStatusChanged(object sender)
                    var coninfo = NetworkInformation.GetInternetConnectionProfile();
                    if (coninfo != null)
                        await this.Dispatcher.RunAsync(Windows.UI.Core.CoreDispatcherPriority.Normal, () => {
                            tb1.Text = coninfo.ProfileName;
                catch(Exception ex)

    For WP SL 8.0 or 8.1 app, Microsoft.Phone.Net.NetworkInformation.DeviceNetworkInformation class can accomplish your requirement: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/microsoft.phone.net.networkinformation.devicenetworkinformation(v=vs.105).aspx
