Windows 7: Trigger sound alarm when you get disconnected from Internet

Trigger sound alarm when you get disconnected from Internet

I've been wondering if Windows 7 has capabilities to trigger sound alarm when the network connection icon in the bottom right corner changes due to internet/network disconnection. I guess, in theory, Task Scheduler should come in handy, but first, the correct Event ID for the above-mentioned change needs to be determined. I couldn't find it yet. So, your help will be greatly appreciated.
I found a standalone program NetSNSOR that can trigger alarm. However, a built-in process would be more useful.
