To build a Network monitor on an http check you need to:

1 - Create a network monitor: Monitor > New monitor

Don't forget to select the threshold values for your monitor

Note: Contrary to metric monitor it's not possible to get alerted after the endpoint is unavailable for X min. Instead you can only be alert after 5 max consecutive bad statuses. Unless a high timeout value is used in the agent config, if a site goes down this translates into 5 * ~15-20 seconds (agent collection period) i.e. 1min30 without data.
