We're having an issue where our road runner cable connection goes down for anywhere from a few minutes to a couple of hours. Of course, when the cable guy comes out, it is working fine and he can find nothing. Both the cable TV and internet connections are going down so it is most likely an issue with the signal outside and not anything internal.

I would like to be able to document when and for how long we are losing the signal. Is there a *simple* freeware application that would monitor an internet connection and log when it's good and when it's not? Perhaps something that periodically pings the CMTS server and logs the results. Ping Plotter will do the pinging, but I don't think the freeware version will keep a log of when the outage occurs.

Thanks.

Ran across "Karen's 'Net Monitor", looks like it will do what I was looking to do.
