Re: Email alert if PC disconnects from ADSL

Something is going odd with this thread. Replies seem to be vanishing. Anyway. My reply might have been a bit cheeky but the point is still valid. You wont find an off the shelf solution that will allow you to monitor one adsl connection from another. Of course it can be done. You can ping router 1 from router 2, if it gets a reply chances are everything is OK. If it doesnt you can ping a known address (google maybe) to confirm that its not router 2 that is down. All this can easily be automated to enable an email to be sent if router 1 appears offline.

The caveats are that both routers would need to use different ISPs and be in different geographical locations (not on the same exchange). Either way vps will be a lot cheaper
