    Hi I'm just doing some research. Is it possible to detect if the app is connected to the internet and what type of connection it specifically is it wifi? Cheers, Chris.

    Hi Chris,

    Check this Cordova API for Connection in Documentation to get the connection type.

    And to detect when your application switch between online and offline state hook up to the corresponding events (see Cordova Events Documentation).

    Better late then never. Code might help someone.


    app.checkConnection = function()
          var networkState = navigator.connection.type;
          var states = {};
          states[Connection.UNKNOWN] = 'Unknown connection';
          states[Connection.ETHERNET] = 'Ethernet connection';
          states[Connection.WIFI] = 'WiFi connection';
          states[Connection.CELL_2G] = 'Cell 2G connection';
          states[Connection.CELL_3G] = 'Cell 3G connection';
          states[Connection.CELL_4G] = 'Cell 4G connection';
          states[Connection.CELL] = 'Cell generic connection';
          states[Connection.NONE] = 'No network connection';
          $('#sp_connection_type').text(states[networkState] + " " + device_language);
          if (states[networkState] == 'No network connection') {
              'No active connection found!',
              'Network ',
        // I wanted a confirm button first opening setting,
         // but not available now
      function oppenSettings(buttonIndex) {
      if (buttonIndex == 1) {
        // alert("we do something");
      else {
      // alert('we do nothing! ');
