    I will like to increase the default downloads frm 2 -10

    I came upon this:

    However, I do not understand step 3?
    When i click ADD, there are like String value, binary value etc,,which one should I use? Any one can give me any pointers?

    Thanks

    Allow more than 2 simultaneous downloads in IE 6 TOP
    This is to increase the the number of max downloads to 10.

    1. Start Registry Editor

    2. Locate the following key in the registry:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/InternetSettings

    3. On the Edit menu, click Add Value , and then add the following registry values:

    "MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server"=Dword:0000000a
    "MaxConnectionsPerServer"=Dword:0000000a

    4. Quit Registry Editor.
    Reboot

    Download this file and and run the inclosed .reg files and reboot. These will change it to 16 which is what I use and I find it works great.

    Note: This only helps broadband connections, and will not help much if any on a dialup connection.

    If you still need 10 connections let me know and I will edit the file to make a max of 10 instead of 16.
