Script pingovalka for maintaining Gprs-connection

Скрипт-пинговалка для поддержания Gprs-соединения

Quite often, operators (and providers) offer cheap Internet - or even provide anlim.

But with us everything is not like with people, it just cannot be happiness.

Often the connection is broken or "shuts up" "sticks" (when the connection does not break, but the data does not go).

Anyone who encounters this problem will be helped by a simple ping-ping script.

Its meaning: the address periodically responds. In the absence of ping (when the channel is “stuck” or broken), reconnection occurs.

By running this script, you can be sure of maintaining a healthy connection.


1. Create a cmd-file in a notepad (for example, pinger.cmd) with the following contents:

 @echo off
 echo% date%% time% --- STARTED --- >> pinger.log
 set Try = 1

 rem All settings are moved to this block.

 rem connection name
 set DialName = Life
 rem login
 set Login = Login
 rem Password
 set Pass = Password
 rem ping timeout in ms
 set TimeOut = 10000
 rem the number of ping attempts
 set MaxPing = 5
 rem pause in s
 set Pause = 30
 rem ping host address
 set host =
 rem your phone number
 set PhoneNum = 80631234567

 : start
 echo start ping
 ping% host% -n 1 -w% TimeOut%
 if errorlevel = 1 goto bad
 goto ok

 : ping
 ping% host% -n 1 -w% TimeOut%
 if not errorlevel = 1 goto ok
 set / a Try =% Try% + 1
 if% Try% geq% MaxPing% goto bad
 goto ping

 : ok
 goto end

 : bad
 set / a Try = 1
 echo% date%% time% -!  Trouble, reconnect! - >> pinger.log
 rasdial% DialName% / disconnect
 rasdial% DialName% / phone:% PhoneNum%
 rasdial% DialName%% Login%% Pass%
 if errorlevel = 1 goto bad
 goto ping

 : end
 set / a Try = 1
 choice / C: PRDE / T: P, 30 / N Pause 30 seconds.  [P] ing [R] econnect [D] isconnect [E] xit?
 rem echo.
 rem echo.
 goto ping
 : 2
 goto bad
 : 3
 rasdial% DialName% / disconnect
 echo% date%% time% == Exit script == >> pinger.log

In this file you need to replace MANDATORY :

  • connection name (set DialName = Life) [look at the name: Start - Settings - Network Connections - the name of your connection]
  • login / password (set Login = Login set Pass = Password) - if required to establish a connection

In this file you need to replace (if desired):

  • address of the host that is responding (set host =
  • ping timeout (set TimeOut = 10000)
  • the number of ping attempts (set MaxPing = 5) after which there will be reconnection
  • connection check interval (set Pause = 30)

2. Next to pinger.cmd we put "" from the choise.rar archive.

3. We start and enjoy life - pingovalka will establish a connection and will maintain it in working condition.
