Have you noticed a problem if you try to download more than two files at once from the internet? The default number of simultaneous downloads from a web server is only 2. By tweaking the registry you can increase the number to 10.

  1. Launch Regedit

  2. Navigate to this key:
    HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings

  3. Create a new DWORD called MaxConnectionsPerServer

  4. Set the value for DWORD = 000000a

  5. Create another new DWORD called MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server

  6. Also set the value of this DWORD = 0000000a
