net disconnect alert

  1. i know there's many ping/monitoring programs and some have various alerts
    problem i'm experiencing is occasionally the net disconnects for a minute or
    so then re-connects
    when i'm concentrating on the screen i don't notice the modem lights but what
    happens when browsing is clicking on a new page it's extremly slow loading
    and - since it's happened several times - i know to look at the modem and the
    lights will be on but after maybe a couple of minutes - if i happen to have caught
    the disconnect as it begins - lights will go off confirming the disconnect

    so what i'm looking for is preferably free a utility that can pickup this disconnect
    process as it begins - before the lights go off and popup or sound alert there's a
    disconnect occuring - any recommendations ?
