    Internet Explorer Download Limit.......only 2 files????

    I've always been annoyed how IE only downloads 2 files at the same time. All the other files have to wait in queue of sorts.

    I foudn 2 simple fixes for these, but I want to make sure no has had a problem using them


    The fixese are here :

    Yeah, IE follows a "rule" (dunno where this came from) of not making more than 2 connections per server.

    Opera allows you to set the number of connections it opens.

    Here is the fix I use for the IE problem

    It's called IESpeed, lets you set the number.. it's that simple.

    You can increase the number of simultaneous connections that are allowed to 10, but you'll need to edit the Registry to do it...

    Start | Run | Type Regedit and hit Enter or click OK. Locate the following Key in the Registry (make sure to back up the Registry, or at least the Key by highlighting it...and selecting "Export" from the "File" menu:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER | Software | Microsoft | Windows | CurrentVersion | Internet Settings

    On the "Edit" menu, select New "DWORD Value" (or right click in the RH pane and select New "DWORD Value"), then add the following Registry Value Names and Values:

    Value Name...MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server
    DWORD Value...0000000a

    Value Name...MaxConnectionsPerServer
    DWORD Value...0000000a

    Hit F5 to refresh the Registry, and quit Registry Editor.

    That is HEX, I bet you can get alot more if you tried:
    0 = 00000000
    1 = 00000001
    2 = 00000002
    ...
    9 = 00000009
    10 = 0000000a
    11 = 0000000b
    12 = 0000000c
    13 = 0000000d
    14 = 0000000e
    15 = 0000000f
    16 = 00000010
    17 = 00000011
    ...
