You might look into something like nagios It's a network
monitoring system, though it may be a bit of overkill for your needs.  I
have my nagios server set up to check connectivity to my ISP's routers and
the outside network every 15 minutes.  It warns me whe ping times exceed a
certian threshold or the service becomes totally unavailable.  I've used
this information to successufully persuade my ISP that there is a problem on
their network that needs correcting.
