Cool! Then I would recommend making your program as simple as you possibly can.

This part of the code is completely independent of the Tkinter code.
Split it up into the two parts and develop each one separately.

You have two separate parts to this code, and it's possible that
neither of them is working. I would recommend concentrating first on
the connection status function. Remove everything about Tkinter, and
replace it with a simple print() call:
print("Connection is happy")
print("Connection is down!")
Now you can work on making sure your connection tester is working.
What exactly are you testing? What goes wrong when you don't have a
1) Avoid using the bare "except:" clause. It may be hiding bugs in your code.
2) Make sure you're trying something that actually does work.
Connecting to 126.96.36.199 port 80 isn't going to succeed even if your
connection is live.
Start with that, and you should be able to get a lot further with your testing.
Have fun with it! If you run into trouble, post your updated code,
what you're trying, and what's happening.
