Internet Explorer simultaneos download limit

Hi,
 
my last blog was about IE download. Even if you close the browser you download keeps running.
 
Well, this one is about the limit of simultaneos download that a user can do using Internet Explorer.
 
The default value for Internet Explorer 7 and prior versions is 2. Internet Explorer 8 increases this limit to 6.
 
You can change this values if you want to. To increase this number for IE7 and earlier versions follow this procedure:
 
  1. Start Registry Editor.
  2. Locate the following key in the registry:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionInternet Settings
  3. On the Edit menu, point to New, click DWORD Value, and then add the following registry values:
    Value name: MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server
    Value data: 10
    Base: Decimal

    Value Name: MaxConnectionsPerServer
    Value data: 10
    Base: Decimal

  4. Exit Registry Editor.
 
If you´re using IE 8, like me, you have to apply this procedure:
 
  1. Start Registry Editor.
  2. Locate the following key in the registry:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftInternet ExplorerMAINFeatureControlFEATURE_MAXCONNECTIONSPERSERVER
  3. On the Edit menu, point to New, click DWORD Value, and then add the following registry values:
    Value name: iexplore.exe
    Value data: 10
    Base: Decimal

    Note set this value to the connection limit that you want for HTTP 1.1 connections. By setting the value to 10, you increase the connection limit to 10.

  4. Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
  5. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftInternet ExplorerMAINFeatureControlFEATURE_MAXCONNECTIONSPER1_0SERVER
  6. On the Edit menu, point to New, click DWORD Value, and then add the following registry values:
    Value name: iexplore.exe
    Value data: 10
    Base: Decimal

    Note set this value to the connection limit that you want for HTTP 1.1 connections. By setting the value to 10, you increase the connection limit to 10
