How can I allow more than 2 simultaneous downloads in IE 6?
To configure IE to allow up to 10 simultaneous downloads (it only allows 2 at a time) do the following:

  1. Open Registry Editor.
  2. In Registry Editor, navigate to the following registry key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings
  1. On the Edit menu, click Add Value, and then add the following registry value:
    “MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server”=Dword:0000000a “MaxConnectionsPerServer”=Dword:0000000a
    You can change 0000000a to any other value as long as it’s hexadecimal.
  2. Close the registry editor.

Download this .reg file and double click it to merge it to your registry. The file will allow for a maximum of 10 simultaneous downloads.
