Faster Internet Connections in Win9x & Win2K

Those of us fortunate enough to have fast internet connections (cable modem, DSL, etc.), the following registry tweak allows more concurrent HTTP connections while downloading a web page. Each item on a web page requires a separate HTTP "Get", so if your connection can handle more concurrent connections, you can "Get" more items downloading at once. This is what to do:

  • Create a new plain text file and call it Tweak.reg.
  • Highlight the text below and press CTRL+C to copy it:




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

  • Paste it into your new text file by pressing CTRL+V.
  • If you decide to make your own, make sure everything one the line that starts with "[HKEY_CURRENT_USER….\Internet Settings]" is on one line. Also make sure that there are no blank trailing spaces, and that there is one carriage return after the last character in the text you paste.
  • Right click on the file. From the context menu choose Merge. Wait a few moments. Remember to delete the REG file when you’re done.
