I have some trouble with my internet connection, it fails sometimes, during the day, i can be 2-3 minutes down and then it will ok for another 30 mins or an hour or more, it depends...

speed tests online work good, but i need some client side application i can install and test my connection every few minutes or even less and get some daily statistics.

Is there such thing?

There are a few basic tests you could try while you notice the interruption which may help to pin-point the issue...

Ping your router
Ping a website or DNS server
Do a traceroute to a website or DNS server

These three steps might give you the answer.

Hi,

There are a lot of tools to do what you need. But i suggest you to use PRTG tool.
This program aim is that you are asking for. Also it is giving you a reports. (For example: how many times your internet connection was dropped last month.). Also have a ability to read SNMP sensors.
It is free for some amount of sensors which would be enough for you.
