USG add internet connectivity check(s). Not only ping, but others like ARP too.

Status: New Idea

Currently the USG only checks the availability of the internet connection by pinging to ping.ubnt.com (or an IP / host you manually setup).


If ICMP for whatever reason is not available or blocked, the USG assumes there is no internet connection.


There could be a second check, for example to an web, dns, ntpserver, to make the internet connectivity check more redundant.

(Several monitoring tools also have options for multiple tests to check if an internet connection is up or not.)
