We are searching for a product that can test network connectivity from outside the network.  The program/applicaiton/service or whatever can do this would simply tell me that the Internet connection at my office is down.  I use logmein for remote access to my workstation and I know when there is a problem with the Internet connection b/c I won't be able to log into my workstation and then can't log into the other workstations on my network.  This tells me there is a problem with teh Internet connection.  However, I can't be constantly checking this, so is there a product that can do something similar with letting me know there is a problem?  Pinging the router won't work b/c I disabled ping echo/reply on our public IP.
