Is there a utility that presents a tray icon showing domain controller reachability?

I have a laptop PC joined to a corp domain, and I roam sometimes, losing Wifi connectivity to my corp LAN. So I'd like to have a small utility that can notify me when the DC becomes reachable or unreachable, so that I can know in advance whether some Active Directory related operation is available or not.

Click on the network icon in the system tray. It will show you the names of the networks that you're connected to.
