IE speed up Tip that works

Recommended Posts

This really works, I am on cable but still noticed a difference in the speed of webpages loading, and of course now I can download more than 2 files from the same server at the same time. Cool tip.

Increase Number of Download Sessions in Internet Explorer

To comply with current Internet standards, Internet Explorer limits the number of simultaneous downloads to two downloads, plus one queued download. This configuration is a function of the browser. However, as connection speeds increase, and the number of total connections that are allowed to Internet servers increase, the two-connection limit may be restrictive.

Please Note: Changing the maximum number of connections beyond two is a violation of Internet standards; use at your own risk!

To increase the number of simultaneous connections that are allowed, follow these steps:

Start the Registry Editor

Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Internet Settings

Select New > DWORD Value from the Edit menu

Name the new value MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server

Right-click the MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server value and choose Modify

Under Base, click the radio button next to Decimal

In the Value Data: box enter the number of simultaneous connections you want to set (for example 10 is a good value), and click OK

Repeat steps 3 - 7 using the new value MaxConnectionsPerServer

Exit the registry editor

From here

Thanks for spotting that tip Rocky. :rocky:

I’m also on cable and it now seems faster after adding the two entries into the registry :)

I noticed this was an xp fix, but I did it setting value to just 4, and saw an increase. Win Me for an os. It seemed to have some problems when set to 10. Nice find Rocky. Also, I'm running dsl.

Are you saying to do this up to the number of times you add a Per1_0 server or what?

I have seen this tip twice, the other time did not mention the MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server line at all, only the MaxConnectionsPerServer line.

If you do it this way, like I did, you add two new dword values

MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server

MaxConnectionsPerServer

Got it?

Before I attempt this, I was wandering what everyone's thoughts were regarding the performance difference? Anything to help my old ISDN connection improve the better.

And seeing as your the "tip man" for the moment, have you got any ideas how I can make an ISDN line perform to the standards of an ADSL connection Rocky? ;)
