Windows 7

Simple Request.

How would do i make windows 7 play a looping sound or any .wav or mp3 when not connected to the internet or when not getting an IP address?

If that doesn't make sense i will outline why i want this.

I have a simple home server. Its a pain to hook up a monitor so i remote it all the time. I cant do this without network.
I have some simple speakers hooked up to it.
I would like it to play a simple sound or warning sound when it is not connected to the network. ( so i can tell its not connected).

Any thoughts

BE ADVISED ***I do not know anything about this product besides what I just read about it and I have never used it***

I have been looking for this answer and I found this link:


Its an explaination/review of a program called NetSENSOR and that softwares website is:


You can set it to play any sound file of your choice.

It constantly scans your internet connection to let you know ASAP when the internet connection is lost.

I hope this helps.

<edit below>

I was reading up a bit more on this product and found that you can include the internet connection name, and the login information to it, so if it detects your no longer connected, it will run netstart.bat and attempt to reconnect you to your internet connection. That seems very awesome. Im still not to sure about the program though, it seems very small time(not well known), and I would suggest you check it against known malware and or run virus scan before install.
