Reconnect ethernet raspberry

Tue Sep 18, 2018 8:33 pm

My english is bad, I need that when my raspberry does not find internet, do not leave the code, any ideas?

I tried this code to check if there is internet connection

Code: Select all

import urllib2

def internet_on():
        urllib2.urlopen('', timeout=1)
        return True
    except urllib2.URLError as err: 
        return False
But I do not know how to make it to try again to connect

If you mean you want to test the connection every minute, then just write a loop to call your function to report the return value (or do something according to the return value). You should also call the

Code: Select all

function in your loop to only test it once a minute, to prevent it keep trying too frequently.

There must be some error in the program. I also think to use the loop function.
