Are you referring to NetworkManager's connectivity check? Because that
checks to see if http://www.archlinux.org/check_network_status.txt
returns the body content "NetworkManager is online", see
NetworkManager.conf(5) for details.
It is a pretty robust check, unless archlinux.org is offline or banned
by a proxy/filter.
