That is outside the scope of Indy.  You have to use other means to do that.
The most reliable way is to ping a known server on the Internet.

You can't stop it.  You can only avoid calling it at all if no connection is
present.  But that won't help if the connection goes down while Get() is
working.  Why not just wrap the Get() in a try..except block and handle any
error it raises instead?
