    Registry tweak to increase Connection Limits in Internet Explorer 8

    You can download 6 files at a time with Internet Explorer 8. it is higher than Internet explorer 7. Still you can get it to do better. by using simple simple registry tweak you can increase the number of files that can be downloaded simultaneously to 8 in Internet Explorer 8.

    1. Open up Notepad

    Copy below string and paste it into notepad:

    Windows Registry Editor
    Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings]
    “MaxConnectionsPerServer”=dword:00000010
    “MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server”=dword:0000010

    3. One thing to take note here. Once you have copied the string to notepad, delete both ” (double quote) and retype. Without doing so could cause the value fail to be added into registry due to the double quote copy from the webpage is different from what you type manually. Save the notepad as “IncreaseConIE8.reg” with Save as type is “All Files”.

    4. Double click the registry file, continue with UAC prompt and click OK to confirm you wish to perform the action.

    You can get a good speed of some web sites because the sites by Increasing the maximum allowed simultaneous connects from 2 to 16. but be careful that the trick will not gonna work on all sites because the web server has control of number of connections limit.

    Try this at your own risk. your ip adress may get banned from many sites.if you still want to continue you may need to create a pair of .REG files. back and forth. export registry key once for 16, and again for 2 connections. When you want to switch, you just have to run the version you want to re import it.

    You can also configure the connection limit by using Group Policy

    1. Click Start, click Run, type gpedit.msc, and then click OK.
    2. Expand User Configuration, expand Administrative Templates, expand Windows Components, expand Internet Explorer, expand Security Features, and then expand AJAX.
    3. Set the Maximum number of connections per server (HTTP 1.0) and Maximum number of connections per server (HTTP 1.1) options to the settings that you want. You must update policies or restart the computer to apply these changes.
