Use a routing protocol, such as RIP, BGP or OSPF. 8-)
Seriously, this is a really hard thing to answer because connectivity
to one site doesn't mean you can reach the site you're actually
interested in. Most applications with a user interface solve this by
supplying the user with a "try again" button, perhaps with minimal
additional information on the problem.
