This is mainly for all you dial-up users.

1. Backup your registry! When you screw around with your registry you always want to back it up. You know why? Because if you mess something up, well... Then you're just screwed. If you don't know how to do this, refer to step 1A.

1A. Click Start > Run..., and type RegEdit and press Enter. Be sure you set your Export Range to All. Now just select a file name and a directory to save in, and you're ready to go!

2. Select these folders in the order as listed below.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > Microsoft > Windows > CurrentVersion > Internet Settings

3. Now, you should see on the right side the list of registry strings. One is MaxConnectionsPerServer and the other is MaxConnectionsPerl_OServer.

Right-click on MaxConnectionsPerSever and select Modify.

Change the value to 6. Make sure Deci'mal is selected. Click Ok.

Now click MaxConnectionsPerl_OServer and do the same as above.

Now, if one of these strings was not in your registry, si'mply add them manually (Right-click and select DWORD Value) then continue the tutorial as normal.

Now close the registry editor and open up Internet Explorer and it should run faster.

I hope you found this tutorial helpful! :huh:
