Can someone please advise on whether there is a simple tool that can be used to monitor internet connections (ADSL), as to their status of connection and dropout times and duration.
ISP's are continually saying that it's a hardware fault or the line providers problem. Any sort of information that can be used to define the actual issue would be beneficial.
Thanks in advance

Simplest way to check availability is to start a ping session and later check how many drops you had during the test.

Start something like this from the command prompt: ping somenetaddress -t

Dear,


I have made a software for a friend that had exactly the same problem, unfortunalty I could not attach a .exe file. The software was doing almost exactly that the batch code below, but display a graph. Maybe a good idea would be to show the graph to the provider (it has worked for my friend)

Save this code to a .bat file and replace xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx by the ipadress of your provider, or google, etc. and then after you could make a graph with excel with the data.


:11
ping xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx -n 3 >>log.txt
echo. |time >>log.txt
goto 11
