Monitoring internet connectivity status

I'm using pfSense 2.0-RC3, installed on a Pentium PC that contains two NICs. One is connected to a regular 100Mbit switch, the other connects to my ADSL router. The ADSL router is configured as a bridge so that all its firewall functions are disabled and it now behaves like a dumb ADSL modem.
Is there a way I can make pfSense log when my Internet connection drops and then reconnects? Having it periodically ping the WAN gateway would probably be enough. It only needs a five minute or so accuracy since when the connection does drop it's either momentary and I don't notice, or it's off for half an hour or more, and I know that I can't get line sync data from the modem.

It already does this. Look at the Status tab for RRD Graphs. The Quality graph is the one you want.
It pings the gateway and gives you a graph of the results.
