How do I allow Internet Explorer to open more than 2 simultanious connections per site?

If you never noticed until now, you should know - IE only opens up to 2 connections per site. That's why you can't download more then 2 files at the same time.
(Note: this has only been tested with Internet Explorer 6)

Open the following key:

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

Add these following values to that key:


(This will give 10, or 0xa, connections per server)
