    How to confirm active wifi

    Hello, this is my first post here.
    I have recently acquired an S3. It seems like a nice phone. I would like to know how to confirm from my computer on the same Wifi and the S3 that the Wifi on the S3 is active or not.
    I tried to ping the S3 ip address but times out weather the Wifi on theS3 is n or off. So that doesn't work.
    What method could I use to determine if the Wifi on my S3 is on or off?
    Thanks

    There is a WiFi icon that comes on in the top status bar next to cell signal.

    Yes, I know that. It is fine when the screen is on. How do I do that while the S3 is asleep?
    This is why I wanted to use the PC to try to access the S3 somehow to see if the S3 Wifi responds or not.
    Thanks

    Put the phone in airplane mode and then turn on wifi. Then use your computer to send an email to your phone. If the email goes through then you'll know that the wifi worked.
