I'm after a tool that can help me diagnose the problems with my internet connection. All I need is a program that can ping one or more servers and alert me when the internet connection drops. Even better once it has a problem with the first website if it could ping or traceroute some other sites at the same time that'd be handy.

Does a tool like this exist?

That's designed for unix, getting it running under windows would take longer than I can be bothered spending. There's too many required modules. Apart from that it'd be fine. Thanks for the suggestion though. Windows apps would be easier.
