Fix InternetGetConnectedStateExA To Not Crash

Currently, InternetGetConnectedStateExA could crash because 
InternetGetConnectedStateExW does not fill in the buffer, and 
WideCharToMultiByte tries to measure the length of the string. If there 
is not a NULL before the next unreadable page boundary, this will crash. 
This patch fixes InternetGetConnectedStateExW to return the string 
received if you are connected to a LAN (as opposed to dial-up or not 
connected to any network). It also fixes the debug trace so that it 
doesn't print garbage.


- Make InternetGetConnectedStateExA not crash, by making 
InternetGetConnectedStateExW fill in the buffer correctly.
- Remove the dumping of strings that will only contain garbage.
- Document function.
