I recommend using an external service:

http://mon.itor.us/index.jsp

This one is free and has a paid version which will get you a better granularity...

The service can monitor your systems external IP for each link.  On the inside it can be difficult to monitor as your system should route around the down link unbeknownst to your monitoring environment.

If you want to stick with an internal system the above list is fairly good except I don't see SolarWinds and with all things being equal thats probably where I'd start for an easier start.  Except I'm an expert so I torture myself with Nagios :-).
