Our internet drops for 1-5 seconds repeatedly throughout the day and would like to monitor how often it drops and how often (NOTE: i am not trying to monitor bandwidth, just connectivity)

How would i accomplish this with PRTG? Thanks!

how do you recognize that you internet connection drops for only seconds?

You would need to ping a website or another device on the internet with a 1sec interval, but that really does not make much sense.
