For windows I would recommend Zenoss. Its linux based with a web Gui. Pretty simple and straight forward. Plus its free.

Zenoss.com

IF you dont mind spending a little money i would go with Solar Winds IP monitor. but in my opinion you can do just as much with Zenoss.

Doesnt do much except notify you that pings are failing.

Good luck,
