[ubuntu] Network Connection Logging

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi all, Wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction to setup some form of network connection monitoring and logging? As Australia has CRAP broadband and ISP's utilize Peak & Off-Peak download limits I schedule downloads for my Off-Peak times. Well recently my connection drops out exactly when my off-peak time kicks in and requires my modem to be reset to re-establish my connection. My ISP is denying they are doing this but I happens everyday now and is getting really frustrating. What I want to try and set up is some sort of monitoring to ping my ISP's default gateway s (HowTos)
