How do you check in a script for internet connectivity?

Kind of: If you have internet do your thing, else exit here and do nothing.

(My solution was a ping, but then I get `ping: sendmsg: No route to host` in my cronjobs.)


Okay. It seems to work with ping and `if [ $? -eq 0 ]`. I just did the wrong check.
