Speed up Internet Explorer!
* Open registry editor by going to Start --> Run --> regedit.

* In registry editor, navigate to key HKEY_CURRENT_USER --> Software --> Microsoft --> Windows --> CurrentVersion --> Internet Settings.

* Click on edit --> New --> DWORD.

* Type MaxConnectionsPerServer --> You can set value (the more higher the no, the more good speed u get, e;g : 99). [99 in hexadecimal, So 153 in decimal]

* Create another DWORD.

* Type MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server.

* Then put a high value as mentioned above.

* Restart Internet Explorer and you are done.

1) Make sure ALL instances of Internet Explorer (including this window) are closed.
.1a) Either make the change and right before you click OK for the last time, close this window.
.1b) OR Copy-and-paste this text to a notepad file and close this window.

2) Then run Regedit and go to:

(to run regedit --> Start --> Run --> Type: regedit.exe --> OK)

Notes: This Registry / Internet Explorer change takes effect immediately.
Other notes: Restart MS IE while connected to a network / internet to see the difference.

RECOMMENDED: Export (BACKUP) this Registry key to a REG file FIRST to be able to restore it (by running the REG file) if necessary. In Regedit: highlight the key name in the left hand pane -> click "Registry" from the menu -> select "Export Registry File..." -> type a file name in the "File name" field -> browse to the destination of your choice -> push the Save button.
