WAN Check Editor's Review

WAN Check is a free tool that allows you to check if your Internet connection is alive or not.

In case your Internet connection isn't active, the application sends you a message in order to alert you. You can also set the application to send you a message when the connection is active (after the reconnection).

The application comes as a daemon but you have to do some initial settings. Then it runs in background. It is completely invisible for you in case there isn't a certain situation when it should alert you because of some event.

You can check if it's running by using the OS X Activity Monitor. In order to shut it down you have to kill the daemon from the Activity Monitor. If you would like to reset application's profile, then you can find a second program in the package that can be used in order to do this.

The program can write a log file to the disk. It has multiple logging possibilities: basic, detailed and debugging. You can also turn off the log. Another thing that you can enable is the email notification engine.

The first time when I ran the application it throw an error. You can see that error in my second screenshot. It appeared when I used one of the logging modes. If I started the application with the logging mode off and then activate one of the logging modes, then everything was all right.

Pluses: it is free and is pretty useful if you have an unstable connection and you want to get notified every time when the connections drops.

Drawbacks / flaws: it runs only as a daemon so in order to shut it down you have to search its process in the Activity Monitor. It throws a script error code when trying to launch it for the first time and use a logging mode.

In conclusion: is a pretty useful tool even though it has some minor issues.

version reviewed: 2.2.3

WAN Check Publisher's Description

WAN Check automatically checks to see if your internet connection is still active. If it isn't, it alerts you with a message. You can also let it notify you if you are reconnected to the internet. The WAN Check daemon runs as a background process, so you will only see it in the OS X Activity Monitor.
