Internet Connection Center

Are downloads taking too long to load--even with a high speed internet service? Does your ISP say "It's not our problem?" PC Pitstop's Internet Connection Center can help. This is the place to start to diagnose and perhaps fix connection problems for your home or office system. Our series of diagnostics will help you determine if you're getting optimal performance from your connection. The tools can also help diagnose whether the problem is your modem, your PC, the site you're visiting or your ISP.

Bandwidth Tests Ping Tests

Measure Bandwidth
