QNetworkConnectionMonitor replaces the "are we online?" check that bearer management was used for in QNAM. Currently not a public interface, implemented on macOS and Windows.
To support the "big 3" we also need this implemented for Linux. Likely a lot of the code can be taken from one of the bearer plugins and made to work with the QNetworkConnectionMonitor interface. A manual test can be found in qtbase\tests\manual\qnetconmonitor
