A bit convoluted solution would be to send ICMP ping to "the Internet"
with TTL equal to one and receive a response. Of course it can get
messy in multiple ways, but it'll be "native" Erlang code.

Are you interested in cross-platform solution? Or do you want to avoid
spawning port (or using os:cmd) ?

Best,
