Speed up Internet Explorer

By default Internet Explorer does not allow more than 4 or 2 simultaneous sessions (HTTP 1.0/1.1) from the same source. You can, however, override this setting by adding few registry keys.

Execute the following two commands to add the required values.

  • REG ADD "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings" /v MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server /t REG_DWORD /d 20

  • REG ADD "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings" /v MaxConnectionsPerServer /t REG_DWORD /d 20

More information, including reason for the default limit, is available at
