    Default Internet down notice

    Is there a way to notify me when the internet goes down? Occasionally, I receive email from synology NAS saying it has lost connection. I'm not sure if it is my LAN, DDNS, or my AT&T internet connection. It is very infrequent but would be nice to correlate with actual loss of internet vs other issue. Thank you.

    Yes, you can set an alert. But... umm...

    How would you suggest a server send you an email to let you know that it's lost the ability to send you an email?

    Ah, for that you need WAN Failover, even for a single WAN because you can setup a rule to test the WAN, and it'll log faults.

    Wouldn't the email go once the internet comes back up?

    Yes, it does. But of course there is no email while the WAN is down. Unless you have a second WAN.

    Correct, so you get notice of the problem after you've fixed it...

    Honestly, I use uptimerobot.com for this.

    Seems he just wants to be able to collate times. Probably better ways to do that tho.

    Depends on the duration of the fault. My cloud monitors cannot see anything less than 15min. Untangle via its WAN fail over module can run a test much more frequently. Though, given what little the OP has let on, smokeping might be a better answer.

    I use WAN Failover Outage reports for this.
