Sorry but no... because of the swine flu situation in Mexico City during last week, me and my family decided to left the city to my father's home in Acapulco Mexico, unfortunately I was not able to take my development machine with me.
Today I got back home after our authorities anouncing that the situation is starting to normalize. It will take a few days for us to spin up again (lot's of stuff back at work, and my son school, etc.) but I will check on that.
Thanks for your patience.

It's great to know you managed to make it work. Today I tested with both the latest free version available and the latest plus alfa and they worked fine with both Vista and XP VM's I use to develop. ¿Any suggestions for an update?

I installed the Network Monitor, it works and shows my correct External IP. Then I ran both Docklets at the same time, the WiFi still does not show my external IP. And when I go back to the settings, the URL is gone. Now, when I added the URL to the Network Monitor, my Firewall kicked in and asked for permission to access Internet. When I tried the WiFi Docklet, this did NOT happen. I have checked my Firewall blocked programs list, and there is nothing in there that I can connect to the WiFi Docklet, meaning it would have the access it needs. As I said earlier though, for some reason, I suspect that it's to do with the URL to the IP site not staying in the settings.

Ok, I installed the Network Monitor docklet, and ran it. It DOES show my External IP correctly. Then I ran both the Docklets at the same time, the WiFi still does not show my external, when I open the settings, the URL is gone every time.

Where would I find this wininet to make sure it's installed? I am using Vista Ultimate 32-bit, freshly installed and fully updated. I will find and download your other to try that out. And I don't know if this is significant, but when I put a URL into the WiFi docklet's settings, it would appear not to be kept. That is to say, when I try to open the details, nothing is there under External IP, and when I go back to the docklet's settings, the URL is gone.

I use wininet to open an internet connection to the configured URL, maybe you need to install wininet to your system (although I believe in vista it is already there).
On the other hand... could you download my network monitor docklet, it also checks for the external IP address, with a very similar code, jout to test out if both are having problems.

Yes, all the addresses in your readme showed my External IP. I also tried http://www.whatsmyip.org, which is the one I used on a Sidebar gadget. About showing the External vs. the Internal, couldn't that be done as a setting? So the user chooses in the settings which IP is shown.

Well I'm not sure on the web addresses for checking for external IP on your system... did you tried them by copying the URL to your browser? Did that work?
On the other hand, I see not much problem on having an option to show the external IP address instead of the internal one. The only caveat is that retrieving the external IP address would require and active internet connection and in some circumstances it could fail.

I have only one problem, and hope yoou can help with it, I have it installed and running, and it works as advertised, EXCEPT, for me I CANNOT, no matter what URL I use, get the external IP to show up. I have tried all 4 of the URL's in the readme, also the first 2 without port numbers. Also 2 questions, 1. Can you add an option to show the external IP in place of the local IP? 2. Is this available as a Widget, and if not can you make one? [EDIT] Sorry, it seems that wherever I post a comment, it gets posted twice, even thouogh I only hit submit once. Also, I am running this on Vista Ultimate SP1.

Well there's no better tool for advanced research of obscure and clasified information than Google.

Oh cool Thanks! How do you find more of those commands for other folders?

Hi, what do I put into the command to make it open up my Network Connections in Vista?

The WIFI API has a method that retrieves the information from the wifi driver... I just get the number and show it. Through some testing (with my laptop) and moving around I have found that it actually changes (a few times below 80%) but mine too shows 100% almost all the time (but I am quite close to my router).
How does it get the percentage? Mine shows 99% but i'm sorta far away from the router. Just curious
