Yo can go with the normal Ping sensor and set it up to send several pings. This will give you at least ping time and packet loss. To monitor alls other parameters, you will have to go with the mentioned QoS Sensor. Apart from that you also can use a own script or EXE file and run it with the EXE/Script Advanced Sensor to get all values you need.
