monitoring online and offline internet connection

i would like to know when we are losing our internet connection at home. i want to know when the internet was down and for how long its been down. is there any app that can monitor or ping a outside server, logging it by date and time. i would like to install it on a windows 7 shared server running 24-7.

You could probably install a free trial version of any number of monitoring systems.  Getting the most accurate results it will require monitoring you're edge device.  Check if it has SNMP capability and if it does you can probably pull some decent statics from it.
