This sounds a bit archaic but its worth a try:- pick up your handset and dial your ISP using your phone keypad and using the phone number of your ISP server as it appears in your "internet connections". You should hear your ISPs server answer your call with the usual sounds as one of its modems tries to negotiate a conversation. If it doesnt pick up your call or there is a lot of background noise in the way of crackles etc then its your phone line.
